Sunset is at 8:15 p.m. ET.
Monday night will be warm and muggy. Please, check on your friends, relatives and neighbors making sure they have plenty of water and working air conditioning or good ventilation. This will keep people hydrated and healthy overnight. Lows will be in the low and mid 70s.
Tuesday's heat and humidity remain high
Tuesday will be another sizzler. Morning temps soar to the 80s just after breakfast. The blazing sun will increase temps to the low 90s in the afternoon. Heat indices will be near 100 degrees in the afternoon.
All coaches and athletes must remember heat exhaustion and heat stroke are dangerous and deadly and can afflict anyone, regardless of fitness. Try to exercise or practice during cooler times of day. No matter when outdoor activity occurs, drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks and stay near air conditioned areas.
Also, just as important, thousands of people will pay homage to Motown's legendary artist Aretha Franklin. Lines will be extremely long outside the Charles H. Wright Museum Of African American History before it opens at 8 a.m. ET. Anyone standing in the morning, midday, afternoon and evening heat and humidity must drink plenty of water and wear light, loose-fitting clothes. In addition, take inventory of nearby places with air conditioning, including the DIA and Michigan Science Center.
Showers and thunderstorms arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. There's a Marginal to Slight Risk of strong to severe storms with heavy downpours, dangerous lightning and damaging wind and hail.
