DETROIT (WWJ) – If you’re going to be out and about in metro Detroit on Wednesday, don’t forget to bring an umbrella.

CBS 62 Chief Meteorologist Jim Madaus said plenty of rain is expected to fall throughout the day.

“Your drive to work could get really wet,” Madaus said. “As we go through the morning, scattered showers will be mainly hit or miss and by this evening, we could see some strong thunderstorms in spots.”

Madaus said the thunderstorms have a potential to be severe, with hail and damaging winds.

Usually rain cools things down, but that won’t be the case with this storm system. Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to be in the high 70s, low 80s.

“There will be some scattered clouds but, of course, we’re ahead of a warm front so that warmer, humid air will be in the region,” Madaus said.

Here’s the extended forecast from the CBS Detroit weather team:

Wednesday: Rather cloudy and humid with a couple of showers and a thunderstorm, mainly later. High 77.
