Mid Michigan Will See Temperatures Soar Near 100 This Week
With a little more than a week until the official start of summertime, Lansing, Michigan, and the surrounding areas are going to be in for some seriously dangerous temperatures.
Lansing Weather This Week
This week (Monday, June 13th through Friday, June 17th), Lansing won't see high temperatures any lower than the low 80s. In addition to that, the Weather Channel is predicting highs of almost 100 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Things won't cool off very much Tuesday or Wednesday night, either. The low temperatures are forecasted in the mid to upper 70s.
Hot Weather Leads to Hazardous Weather Outlook for Lansing
Things are going to get so hot this week that the National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for a multitude of lower southwest counties, including Ingham, Jackson, and Ionia counties.
During these particularly hot days, make sure to keep yourself hydrated. And don't forget about your pets, too! If you don't have air conditioning at home or a way to keep yourself cool, there are plenty of cooling centers around Ingham county.
Most (if not all) of the area Meijer locations make the cooling center list. As do the Meridian and Lansing Malls. To check out the full list of cooling centers across Ingham County, click HERE.
Lansing 10-Day Forecast
Looking at Lansing's 10-day extended forecast, June 14th and 15th are going to be the hottest days of that period. After that, it will still be rather warm with high temperatures hovering from the upper 70s to the lower 90s, but it won't be nearly as hot as this week.
With all these crazy warm days on the way, I'm sure there will be lots of people turning on their air. With that in mind, remember that according to the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISD), Michigan residents could be in for some power outages. Read more on that HERE.
