Excessive heat watch for Ann Arbor; high of 102 expected
The Ann Arbor area is in for another day of 100-plus degree temperatures Tuesday, at least the third this year.
With the forecast now calling for a high of 102 degrees, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch in effect from Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening. The heat index, a combination of the temperature and relative humidity, could reach up to 107 degrees, the weather service said.
The weather service advised residents to drink plenty of fluids and stay in an air-conditioned room or stay out of the sun when possible.
As the Ann Arbor Art Fair gets under way Wednesday, temperatures are expected to moderate, the weather service said, with highs in the 80s the rest of the week.
