High temperatures in Upper Peninsula

High temperatures in Upper Peninsula

MARQUETTE — In addition to the wind, rain, thunder and lightning, temperatures continue to climb into the 80s and 90s. When you add in the humidity, it feels even hotter outside.

These past few days some areas of the Upper Peninsula have been experiencing temperatures that feel like 100 degrees with the humidity.

The National Weather Service in Marquette says we are probably going to continue seeing this hot and humid weather through tomorrow. Mid to late July is typically the warmest time of the year and these conditions are not unheard of.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Todd Kluber said that “It’s not something we see all the time, but it’s not abnormal to at least have one or two stretches of this each summer.”

However, you may want to enjoy the heat while it lasts, Kluber says that this winter could be colder than average.

In addition to high temperatures, we’ve already had five tornadoes in the Upper Peninsula this summer and we haven’t had more than five recorded tornadoes in a single year.
