It is going to be a hot weekend and many people will want to hit the beach.

With summer winding down, time is limited to hit the beach in Michigan. This weekend will definitely be a beach-worthy weekend that is for sure. We will see the temperature reaching around right around 90 degrees on Saturday and mid-80's on Sunday. The best part is, plenty of sunshine should accompany those temperatures on Saturday. Sunday may see a thunderstorm though.

Take advantage of the time we have left in the summer because before you know it, we will see Northface jackets, uggs, and that disgusting pumpkin spice flavor that takes over everything.
