After Storms, Heat is on for Grosse Pointe

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch for much of southeastern Michigan, including Grosse Pointe.

Storms roared through Grosse Pointe on Tuesday morning, and the chance for more storms exists this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS reports that there is a 40 percent chance of more rain Tuesday afternoon.

Rain or no rain, though, expect more hot weather for Tuesday and beyond for Grosse Pointe.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch for Wayne County, including Grosse Pointe, through Friday.

With the potential for 10 days in a row of 90-degree-plus temperatures, the weather service said the heat potentially could make people more susceptible to heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion and dehydration.

To guard against heat-related illnesses, the National Weather Service urges the following steps:

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Stay in air-conditioning
  • Stay out of the sun
  • Check on neighbors and family.

 

Temperatures are expected to reach 95 degrees Tuesday in Grosse Pointe, with a heat index topping 100.

The forecast for the 4th of July is even hotter, with a temperature of 98 degrees predicted. High temperatures in the 90s are expected through Friday with lows only reaching the mid-70s.
