Spring is here, feels like summer
The vernal equinox, or spring equinox marks the end of winter today, and the beginning of spring. But don't rule out the possibility of another snow fall - after all this is Michigan.
Record highs across the state are expected to continue through the rest of the week in Michigan.
The Associated Press reports:
The weather service office in suburban Detroit says there's been six consecutive days of 70 degree temperatures that started March 14 and continued through Monday. It says the last time there was such a stretch of warm weather in the area around this time of year it was April 16-24, 1886.
The weather service forecasts several more days of 70 degree temperatures. In southeast and mid-Michigan temperatures are expected to reach 85 tomorrow.
According to the Associated Press, the weather service in Grand Rapids says record high temperatures in West Michigan were broken on five consecutive days from March 14 through Sunday. In the northern Lower Peninsula, forecasters say high temperatures are coming in about 25 to as much as 40 degrees above average.
