Blame (or Thank) the Jet Stream for Michigan's unusually warm weather
Michigan will be flirting with temperatures near 80 degrees today.
The state has been seeing record or near record breaking temperatures for the past few days.
Amos Dotson is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He says we can thank the Jet Stream for the much higher than normal temperatures.
"This happens every once in a while," says Dotson, "It’s pretty rare but it does happen where the Jet Stream pattern has just shifted further to the north and has just allowed very warm air to infiltrate our region.”
The unusually warm weather is expected to remain in Michigan at least through the middle of the week.
