    DETROIT -
    A heat advisory is now in effect for all of SE Michigan, which means the heat and humidity is getting more and more dangerous and is not going away anytime soon.

    In fact, it’s a 36-hour heat advisory carrying through today, tonight, and all day tomorrow.

    Highs will be in the low to mid 90s with heat indices in the triple digits...

    Promises promises, it is Friday and still hot.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    It finally cooled off enough to open windows last night. We got some heavy downpours on Friday night, thunder, and lightning, but we didn't lose power. Unfortunately, there were a lot of power outages in Oakland County including our favorite market where DH enjoyed "shopping in the dark" yesterday.

    I didn't need an email alert to know that storms are on the way. It has been eerily dark with rumbles of thunder for the last hour or so. I hope we don't lose power

    Heat prompts early dismissals in Midwest schools

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read..._in_midwest-ap

    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — An unusual, late-summer heat wave enveloped much of the Midwest on Monday, putting schools and sports events on hold.

    Schools in Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, the Dakotas and Illinois let out early as temperatures crept toward the mid-90s — beyond in some places. After-school sports practices and evening games were canceled in St. Paul, Minn., and misting stations were keeping people cool at the Minnesota State Fair, where about 90 fairgoers had been treated for heat-related illnesses over the weekend.......more......

    Heat Advisory and storm chances for Wednesday

    We didn't get much relief from the heat overnight with morning low temps in the mid to upper 70s. And, the Heat Advisory continues today with temps soaring into the low 90s this afternoon.

    Heat indices or feels like temps will be in the middle 90s again.

    An approaching cold front will bring a threat of strong to severe storms later today and tonight...

    Thundershowers linger Friday morning

    SE Michigan at risk for severe storms


    Author: Brandon Roux, Local 4 Meteorologist , broux@wdiv.com

    We are right in the heart of the risk area for severe storms later today.

    As our heat and humidity increase today, there’s a chance for spotty showers and storms through the early afternoon but the main event will be in the late afternoon or early evening. Keep your eyes to the skies and on the radar right here on clickondetroit.com.

    The main threats include damaging winds, heavy downpours, and deadly lightning. The bulk of the heavy rain and strong storm activity will be after 4pm and may last until 8 or 9pm. Then, more light rain is likely through tonight...

    Stage set for Michigan's autumn color show

    Spring weather, summer rains promise fall bonanza

    Ursula Watson /The Detroit News

    Fall hues are slowly emerging from northern Michigan to Metro Detroit, as if Mother Nature is pulling down a colorful window shade on what was a lush green summer.

    Colors this fall, which begins Sunday, should be radiant as a result of great weather this summer.

    “We had good weather in early spring,” said Bert Cregg, associate professor in Michigan State University’s horticulture and forestry departments. “This year, I think we are in good shape, since most of the state in the last few weeks has gotten some pretty good rain. That has helped a lot.”

    Like a magnet, the kaleidoscope of fall leaf colors is a draw for a Sunday drive or a weekend getaway, translating into an economic boost for the state.

    “Fall helps to extend our tourism season,” said Michelle Begnoche, spokeswoman for Pure Michigan, the state’s travel and tourism site. “It attracts potentially a different group of traveler to Michigan. Not everyone wants to go to the beach. Fall color tours are definitely a significant part of our fall tourism.” ...

    Tornadoes Hit Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa: Reports of Injuries and Damage, but No Deaths

    OMAHA, Neb. — Tornadoes swept through Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa Friday night, damaging property in all three states.

    Wayne, Neb., saw some of the greatest damage from tornadoes where where at least 10 buildings were destroyed and five were heavily damaged in the town of 9,600, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

    Mayor Ken Chamberlain said at least 15 people were injured, with one person in critical condition. He said all of the residents in the northeast Nebraska town were accounted for, but the storm caused millions of dollars in damage to an area that includes businesses and the city's softball complex.

    Early reports indicate several businesses were destroyed, including a John Deere dealership. Photos showed crushed grain bins, overturned farm equipment and a gas station with shattered windows.
