MARQUETTE - Saturday saw record-high temperatures in some areas of the Upper Peninsula, and that trend looks to continue with more unusually hot weather today.
Forecasts from the National Weather Service out of Negaunee say temperatures could reach into the 90s today, sending people out to the beach to escape the heat in the cold waters of Lake Superior, or keeping them huddled inside their homes with the air conditioning on full blast.
"(Today) the record is 90, so we may be close to tying that or exceeding it in some places," said NWS Meteorologist Jon Banitt, adding that the warm front of Saturday that helped stir up storms throughout the area has pushed warm air from the south up north, helping to keep area residents in shorts and sandals the rest of the weekend.
