Why is our water so warm in the summer?

The summer sun heats Lake Michigan throughout the summer months. Typically, July through September are the warm water months with our tap water reaching into the low 70 degrees Fahrenheit range (21 degrees Celsius). Winter brings about much cooler water temperatures, usually just above the freezing point. To enjoy an ice cold glass of water in the summer, collect a pitcher full and store it in the refrigerator.
