Getting hotter for the holiday

0

DETROIT – Happy 4th of July, Motown! Also, welcome to Saturday.

So far, 2020 has had five 90-degree-days; June 9 and 10, June 20 and July 2 and 3. Today, there is a good chance of having the sixth 90-degree-day and the third one in a row. Many more are to come during the next week with, at least, one record high temperature to be challenged sooner rather than later.

Saturday afternoon will be hot and humid. Highs will be in the low and amid 90s with heat indices easily near 100 degrees. Today’s record high is 102 degrees from 2012. Tying or breaking this record will be difficult, but having it feel like we have will not. Remember to drink plenty of water, wear light and loose-fitting clothes and stay in or near air conditioned areas to remain cool and comfortable.

Also, keep children and pets away from any empty vehicles.

Saturday evening will be fair and hot to very warm. Temperatures will still be near 90 degrees before dinner and cookouts begin. Try to keep fireworks to the professionals. Many hospitals are stressed due to the coronavirus crisis, and it’s like a tinder-box outdoors, and we do not want any fires.

Sunset is at 9:13 p.m.

Saturday night will be warm and muggy. Overnight lows will be in the middle and upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Sweltering conditions persist, Sunday, and this will be the best chance to break or tie a record high. About 96 degrees is the record from 1988, and afternoon temps will be in the middle 90s.

After the holiday weekend, the heat wave continues. Monday and Tuesday will have daytime temperatures in the middle 90s, again. Lawns and other vegetation will need plenty of water to stay healthy.

Our next best chance of any rain will be in random locations, Wednesday and late next week. It remains hot and muggy with isolated showers and thunderstorms each afternoon. Highs will be in the low to upper 90s each day.
