Just in time for the unofficial end of summer, it’s heating up in Metro Detroit.

“Dry and warm is going to be the main story” heading into the Labor Day weekend, said Sara Schultz, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

Temperatures rose into the mid-80s on Monday, and the mercury is expected to remain above normal and reach the mid to upper 80s through the week.

That’s a contrast to the milder temperatures in the 70s for Metro Detroit last week.

“It’s going to be a warm one,” Schultz said.

Conditions will be mostly dry with a low chance of a isolated showers in the afternoons, particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday, Schultz said.
