The latest push of Canadian air that settled over Detroit and Lower Michigan will be followed by a temperature rebound and possible storms later in the week.

High temperatures will trend upward into the 70s Wednesday, before the threat for showers and storms emerges into the evening.

Warmer air will settle in later in the week, yielding highs in the lower 80s on Thursday and Friday.

Folks heading to the ballgames Thursday and Friday evening should expect some showers and thunderstorms, however.
