Actually, it looks like we rallied and tied it at 98°F . A nice way to end that streak without 3 consecutive days above 90. With any luck, we could go for 5.

Yep 6 hour temp was 36.7c or 98. Incredible that we almost hit 100.

A bit balmy tonight, still 77 at DTW and 75 at DET which actually rose a degree this last hour.

Well, there's definitely no way 90*F is happening today...

At least your getting rain.

I'll be more than happy to trade the stratiform rains / garden variety heavy rain showers with anyone in either direction for severe weather action (and the chances of that happening today are also minimal at this point).

Locally, we've had 4-5" of rain within the last 30 days.

Sure we have, but 3 1/2" of it came in 2 days. Kind of hurts the we have had x amount of rain when most of it ran off.

I was shocked it got that hot at DTW, tying the record from 2012/1933. ARB hit 95, mby 95, DET 94. Monroe only hit 89! I checked the wunderground station right by DTW, the same one I check when DTW has a mysterious intrahour bump :lol:, and they too hit 98F....remnants of whatever downsloping occurs at YIP manages to glance DTW. Speaking of YIP, they only hit 100, I was expecting more :lol:.

On todays date in 1934, Detroit recorded the hottest temperature on record with 105F.

Actually this one is explainable, it has been very dry at and around DTW compared to along the river and further ne near DET. Monroe is right on the water so it would make sense to be cooler, ARB also has had more rain this month than DTW. YIP yes is still running hot but only by 2 degrees compared to DTW.

Since June 17th, MBY has had 1.98" of rain (not counting what falls today).

At 2pm yesterday I was telling my brother (who lives in Chicago) that it was 95F with a heat index of 94F at DTW while ORD was only 89F but with a heat index of 97F.

Wow, Rockford shot up to 98 after being in the low 90s last hour.


Sensor malfunction.

Yeah, was just going to say that I checked the METAR and saw the dollar sign.

90/83/113 last hour at PNT.

Insane. I think the all-time record high dewpoint in IL is 84?? Of course dewpoint records aren't as reliable, and it's a shorter period of record. 

ORD is 91/77/105.

GRB is at 83/80.

Can't check now, but wonder when the last 80+ DP was there...

ORD made it up to 93 today. Warmest day of the year, and the 12th 90+ day.

Makes it 91/88/91/90/91/93 during this stretch.

Official heatwave cancel for Detroit (per the definition michsnowfreak posted).

Today's bust broke what would have been a 5-day 90*F streak and 3-day 95*F+ streak.

Just got back from a 45 minute run...unbelievable how the sweat just pours on a day like this with dews flirting near 80.  A/C never felt so good.

Skies darkening to my north/west.

Considering where we were at noon, I'd say 87 is a pretty impressive recovery.

True, and also considering that the sun didn't come out until 4pm.

We probably would have been upper 90's again if it hadn't been for the debris this morning. Reminded me so much of one of those days in 2012 when we were supposed to be up around 100 and only made it into the 80's because of leftovers from an overnight MCS.
