Hottest Michigan Days of Summer Coming Next Week
Temperatures always vary in the summer months, but I think it's safe to say we've had a fairly warm summer so far and it's about to get worse mercury wise.
Weather meteorologists are saying we are about to get into some of the hottest days of summer during the week of August 1st.
Michiganders have already dealt with temperatures in the 90's this summer and it certainly hasn't been pleasant. Thank goodness for air conditioners and swimming pools.
According to mlive.com:
Fortunately, Michigan may just get on the edge of the very hot temperatures. For us in Michigan, I always consider a few days in a row of 95 degrees or hotter as very hot weather. We do top 100 degrees occasionally in Michigan. Next week could make a run at 100 degrees for some cities in the southern half of Lower Michigan.
Can you imagine 100 degrees in Michigan and what that will feel like? I'm certainly not a fan of really hot weather.
My idea of perfect weather is temperatures in the 70's. Not too hot and not too cool, just right for outdoor activities including playing a round of golf or going on a picnic at your favorite local park.
I can even tolerate temperatures in the 80's, but once the mercury points to 90 degrees and above, all bets are off. You'll find me inside with the air conditioning working over-time.
I will say that we're not ready for excessive heat in Michigan. Here's more from mlive.com.
Southern Lower Michigan has a 40% chance of a moderate risk of excessive heat. What is “excessive heat?” Excessive heat is relative to the area, and can be a different temperature for different parts of the U.S. In the case of Michigan, excessive heat implies temperatures in the upper-90s.
The heat is on the week of August 1st, and most likely Wednesday or Thursday are going to be the hottest days. Stay hydrated and stay inside where it's nice and cool.
