Posted by The Huron Hub | May 4, 2022

A big warmup is in store for Michigan next week.

Summer-like temperatures are in the forecast with little precipitation expected, according to forecasters.

Forecasters say models show the extended timeframe with 80s starting next Tuesday and continuing for another seven to ten days beyond next Tuesday.

There will likely be some weather system that forms and keeps temps cooler than 80 some day in that 10 day period, but the main forecast says mid-70s to mid-80s are going to be common next week and possibly the following week.

Get the shorts out!
