DETROIT (WWJ) -- The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for all of Southeastern Michigan Saturday.

The warning goes into effect at noon and will last until midnight, as high temperatures will reach about 95 degrees. The heat index will be around 106.

There doesn't seem to be too much relief in the near future, as Sunday's high is 93 and Monday's 89.

The Weather Service says you should drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. You should also wear light clothing and avoid strenuous activities, especially outdoors.

Saturday will be an Ozone Action Day.

The sunshine and light, with southwest winds, will be bringing hot, humid and hazy air, along with high ozone levels. The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments is asking people do their part to lower pollutant emissions.

On Ozone Action Days, the public is asked not to mow the lawn, fill gas tanks and to reduce electricity use. Breathing high concentrations of ozone can cause health problems -- especially in the young, old or those with asthma or other lung diseases.
