Much of Lower Michigan dealing with high temps - Jul 16th, 2013 - State

— The National Weather Service has issued heat advisories for much of Lower Michigan as high temperatures from the eastern U.S. make their way west.

Heat indices in southeastern, western and parts of northern Lower Michigan are expected to approach, and in some cases exceed, 100 degrees on Tuesday and into Wednesday.

Those indices aren't the actual temperatures, but represent how hot it feels outside, taking humidity into account.

Some communities are providing cooling centers such as libraries to allow residents to beat the heat during the dangerous afternoon hours.

And the Education Achievement Authority has canceled classes at its 15 schools in Detroit through the remainder of the week.
