It is going to be a hot weekend here in Michigan.

As the summer ticks on, the heat isn't over yet. This weekend we are going to see some hot temperatures to say the least. Friday we have a 50% chance of thunderstorms and temperatures in the mid-80's. Saturday, get ready for partly cloudy skies and 90-degree temps. As for Sunday, a slight chance of thunderstorms, otherwise we will see sunshine and 90's.

To combat the heat, many of us try to find bodies of water to cool off in. If you are going to head to the beach, make sure to check beforehand to make sure that the beach you are going to is not closed or has a contamination advisory.
