After hitting 101 Saturday, temps Sunday and this week should hover in the 80s
There’s good news for those of you who’ve spent much of the past week sweating: Relief has arrived.
“The worst of the heat is definitely over for now,” said Alan Reppert, senior meteorologist with AccuWeather. “It looks like temperatures are going to remain pretty much in the lower- to mid-80s for the rest of the week.”

Recent thunderstorms have also helped counter a dry start to summer.
Portions of Washtenaw County received up to .14 inches of rain Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Since the beginning of June, rainfall measured at the airport totaled 1.91 inches, two inches below the normal amount of 3.93 inches.
For the year, Reppert said, the area has received 11.65 inches of rain, compared to an average 15.69 inches to date in a typical year.
“If you look back all the way to January, we’re at 75 percent of normal, so it’s not too far below normal,” Reppert said.
Monday will bring a chance of shower or thunderstorm, but the rest of the week looks dry, he said.
