LANSING, Mich. — Increased clouds today with a few showers possible, especially the farther west you travel. The chance for wet weather is a little higher today, but still not a sure thing. It is, however, probably our best chance this week to see rain. Thursday through Saturday we'll be on the northwestern periphery of an area of upper-level high pressure. While the rain chances aren't zero during that time, they're quite low. Temperatures will be heating up substantially. Expect highs in the mid-80s for the end of the week and rising humidity levels (dew points may get into the 60 - 63 degree range). While it won't be a "mid-summer" Michigan kind of humid, it will be noticeable since it's been so cool for the past month.

TODAY: A few spotty showers, perhaps a thundershower. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 70s. Winds south at 10 to 20 mph.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Wins south 5 to 10 mph. Lows in the lower 60s.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and warm. Highs in the low/mid-80s.

FRIDAY: Partly cloudy and warm. Highs in the mid/upper 80s.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy and warm. Highs in the mid/upper 80s.

SUNDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy with an afternoon and evening chance of showers and storms. Highs in the mid-80s.
