'90 by noon': A hot and sticky start to the work week
Sunday was the second hottest June 17 on record in Southeast Michigan, reaching a high of 96 degrees at Metro Airport. Monday is expected to be about as hot, which, along with high humidity, will make it feel like a 100-degree day.
The heat advisory that went into effect Sunday morning will remain through 6 p.m., said Sara Pampreen, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
Monday will reach "90 by noon," Pampreen said, and will top out in the lower to mid-90s. The heat index will make it feel somewhere in the range of 95 to 100 degrees. The dew point will be in the low 70s, which will give Monday a "sticky" feel.
The high heat owes to westerly winds, which bring warmer air to the region. But Monday afternoon a cold front will move in, bringing rain showers in the evening and overnight.
The cold front will bring Metro Detroit back to temperatures more in line with seasonal averages: a high of about 79 on Tuesday, and highs in the low 70s/early 80s the rest of the week.
