High Heat and Humidity is Back in West Michigan! Will it Last Long?
Boy has the heat returned to Michigan. We have been enjoying some pretty nice weather for the past week or so. However, we all knew it was still summer, even though thoughts of fall were overtaking us.
With the low 90s forecast for Labor Day and Tuesday, you can be sure that summer isn't finished with us yet, but, for how long?
No doubt the Labor Day weekend weather has been pretty darn nice. We had lots of sunshine and warm weather even with the higher humidity.
Fortunately it was not the incredibly humid, sticky weather we had a couple of weeks ago, but certainly more that we have had for awhile. Temperatures are making a run at 90° on Monday and Tuesday, nearing potential heat records across West Michigan according to Fox 17.
We have been near record highs for this time of year, but we only hit 89° for a high on Sunday. With the heat, we had lots and lots of breeze, so Sunday was an okay day to be outside if you had some shade.
Monday, Labor Day, we hit a high of 89° not setting a record because that was 94° set in 1925.
So Tuesday, since we will all be back to work/school, what do you think? Still hot and humid? Yes, for sure, but a record high? We will be close because a high of 90° is forecast and our record high was 92° set in 1954.
However, it does look like the heat wave won't last long. If forecasts are correct, by Wednesday we will have a decent chance of showers and storms followed by a real cool down. Thursday and the rest of the week through the weekend should only have highs in the low to mid 70s and the next week we may see highs only in the upper 60s.
Don't forget, we do live in Michigan, so who knows what will happen after that. Snow?
