This has been the hottest summer in a long time.
Temperatures hit 101 degrees Tuesday in Southeast Michigan, and an excessive heat warning was issued for the region. At 7 p.m. it was still 100 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
The heat wave marks the hottest July 17 in metro Detroit since 1887, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The hottest day on record for the region is 105 degrees. That record was hit on July 24,1934.
The good news? The NWS says a cold front from the north will slowly drop through the entire southeast Michigan region by early Wednesday morning. It'll be windy, but cooler! Look for temps in the 80s the rest of the week.
