Someone flipped a switch from spring to summer seemingly overnight.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be hot: highs will be in the low 90s.
With the extreme heat usually comes the chance of storms.
Severe storms are possible over the next 24-48 hours, as well.
Here is the forecast from the National Weather Service in Detroit:
It will be hot today with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees across most of southeast Michigan. Fortunately, the real humid airmass will not arrive until this evening, and thus peak heat indices should be close to the actual max temperature.
The tropical moisture from the remnants of Cristobal will bring a severe thunderstorm risk to southeast Michigan. There is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms this evening and tonight, with a much better chance for severe storms late Wednesday/Wednesday evening. The fast movement of the storms will limit rainfall under 1 inch for most locations, but localized amounts of around 2 inches is likely in stronger thunderstorms
