LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The unofficial opening weekend to summer will sure continue to feel like it, with sun and highs in the 80s the next few days.

Despite temperatures starting in the 50s and even a few 40s on this Sunday morning, the sunshine was able to work some wonders this time of year which is only aided by the dry air. Highs in most areas managed to sneak into the lower 80s with a mix of sunshine and clouds as the pleasant holiday weekend weather marches on. The notable bullet point is that today could end up going down as the coldest of the next seven days. Lows hold in the 50s with a few clouds overnight but we rise back into the middle and maybe even a few upper 80s on Memorial Day Monday, a day that features more sunshine and dry conditions.

The heat is really on come the middle of the shortened workweek. Highs should make a run into the upper 80s on Tuesday with some folks possibly hitting 90° for the first time this year. If we do not do it Tuesday, there are plenty more opportunities. Lower 90s could also occur on Wednesday, Thursday and even Friday with lots of sunshine and even overnight lows staying in the 60s. June begins on Thursday, and next weekend is the first one of the new month. Temperatures in the middle 80s and more sun are expected, though there is a very, very small opportunity for rain. It will likely be a continuation of the dry weather through this week, as well.

So, for the next seven plus days, there are limited chances for rainfall. Fire danger remains very high around the region and drought conditions will likely continue to grow in the days to come with no meaningful rain on the way anytime soon. Only that longshot chance Thursday or sometime next weekend is in our forecast.
