Brief Big Time Heat

Updated: Jun 28, 2022

An active weather pattern is expected to start the week for Central Michigan. Today we start off dry, but by the afternoon and evening hours a chance of showers and thunderstorms will be in place. A few storms may have strong winds so make sure to secure any loose objects outdoors. The other big story of the first part of the week is the heat. As we go into this week, a ridge - think of a dome of hot air - moves over the region. This’ll bring highs in the upper 80’s for Tuesday and in the mid-90s for Wednesday. Combined with a very humid airmass with dewpoints in the upper 60s to mid-70s this’ll make temps feel like they are near or over 100 degrees. Take some precautions to stay safe in this hot spell such as staying hydrated and in air conditioning.


After Wednesday, it will start to cool down as Thursday we see a cold front pass by with a possibility of some showers and storms with highs in the mid-80s. There are some timing differences in the data regarding when this cold front comes through, so that will affect the potential for Thursday storms. Expect this part of the forecast to be fine-tuned as the week progresses. It will become mostly clear at night. For Father's Day weekend, it looks to be nice with Mostly Sunny skies Friday through Sunday as highs reach the upper-70s to lower-80s and lows in the mid-to-upper-50s.


Here is the 7-Day Graphic for this week. The main story is the brief big time heat on Wednesday.




There is a risk for severe thunderstorms today that could produce damaging wind gusts. The greatest threat looks to be south of our area across southern lower MI for areas in yellow. This outlook is valid as of 1:30PM on Sunday, however, so please refer to newer information on our Facebook page for updates today:




With hot and humid weather expected for Tuesday through Thursday – especially on Wednesday – it’s important to keep you and your loved ones safe. Heat can be even more dangerous if you lose power and are unable to run your air conditioner. Here is what is forecast along with some heat safety tips:




Mt. Pleasant Almanac for This Week:

We’ve had quite the temperature roller coaster since the month started. We started the month coming off a hot Memorial Day weekend with a high of 91. A trough - think of a dome of cooler air overhead - has kept temps much cooler for the first full week of June with highs in the mid-60s to low-70s. Normal for Mount Pleasant for this time of year is around 80 degrees. Looking ahead to our hot spell mid-week, we’ll be well above that. We’ll be close to our record high on Wednesday of 96 degrees. If you’ve been wanting a warmer summer, you’ll get your wish this week.


Almanac Information is a way to look at normal and record high and low temperatures for this time of year. The normal temperatures are based on the 30-year average high and low for that date between 1991 and 2020. For example, if you take the high temperature on all June 13th between 1991 and 2020 and calculate the average of all 30 values, the result would be 79°. Therefore, the normal high for today is 79°. Record high and low temperature data goes back 127 years to 1895. Sunrise and sunset data is also provided. All information is valid for Mount Pleasant:
