Hot air returns to Michigan as the summer season begins to wane


UNDATED (WKZO) -- It looks like the last week of summer vacation for school kids is going to be a hot one.

Meteorologist Evan Webb at the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids says the weather pattern that had been bringing the Great Lakes region cooler than usual Canadian air has changed to one that will pump a lot more hot air into the area.

That will mean higher than normal temperatures, even for late August, and especially Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 90’s.

He says today and tomorrow, it will also bring the risk of rip-tides to the beaches in Muskegon and to the Lake Michigan shoreline in the northern counties. . 

He says the beaches in Ottawa County south should pose less of a risk.

Some long range weather forecasts are predicting even hotter weather for next week, just in time for school.
