It’s been a hot week in Detroit with few signs that it will cool off anytime soon. Today is hot enough that the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties until 10 p.m. Temperatures will be in the high 80s/low 90s most of the day, but it will feel closer to 100 degrees.
Heat advisories often occur when high temperatures combine with high humidity. On days like today, it’s important to stay cool, remain hydrated, and be careful when going outside. If you feel or see someone that’s dizzy or nauseous, it could be heat stroke, in which case you need to call 911.
The city of Detroit has designated a number of places around the city as cooling centers. Here’s a list of those locations with days and times when they’re open. Be sure to check out our guide for places to swim in metro Detroit, many of which are indoors.
Weather forecasts call for scattered thunderstorms and dropping temperatures tonight. For most of the weekend and following week, highs are expected to be in the 80s.
