DETROIT (WWJ) – If you think the month of June was an unusually hot one in Metro Detroit — you’re right.

The official record-keeper, the National Weather Service in White Lake Township, says June 2012 was in line with a trend of warmer than normal temperatures in southeast Michigan.

After last summer,which was Detroit’s fourth warmest ever, this year is off to an even warmer start. Through Saturday, Detroit has seen eleven 90-degree days, the typical average for an entire year.

If you’re wondering what the record is for a year, it was in 1988 when there were 39 days of 90 degrees or better. The experts say most summers that start warmer than usual normally stay that way.

As for this week — forecasts say it won’t be quite as hot as the last, but temps are expected to stick around in the 90s, at least through Saturday.
