Metro Detroit weather: Saturday night will be fair, warm

Sunday will be hotter

DETROIT – Temps take off like a rocket this weekend and early next week in Detroit. It will feel like late-July with heat indices above 90 degrees into early next week.

Please join me on Twitter (@AndrewHumphrey) for regular weather updates.

Saturday night will be fair and warm. Residents will need their air conditioners with overnight lows in the middle and upper 60s.

Sunday will be hotter. Highs will be near 90 degrees and in the low 90s. It becomes more humid. So much so that this will be the first day, this year, to take precautions concerning heat index. Heat indices will be in the mid 90s. Families must remain hydrated. Water is the best beverage. Staying in or near air-conditioned areas is an excellent idea. Wearing light, loose-fitting clothes is a must.
