DETROIT (WWJ) – A heat wave is headed straight for metro Detroit.
It’s been two years since we’ve experienced consecutive 90-degree days — but that’s about to change.
Forecasters say weekend temperatures are expected to flirt with 90 and perhaps more, thanks to some warm winds blowing up from the south.
Temperatures will be comfortable in the mid-70s on Wednesday and Thursday, and will rise to the upper 80s on Friday. Those temperatures will keep rising, with the potential for 90-plus on Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s going to be a hot, hot weekend pushing over that 90-degree mark,” said CBS 62 Chief Meteorologist Jim Madaus. “We’ll see sunny skies on Saturday and maybe a storm on Sunday.”
By Monday, temperatures will cool back down to the lower 80s.
No area of Michigan has sweated through two straight 90-degree days since July, 2013.
