Potential Record Warmth in Southwest Michigan This Weekend
Okay, so maybe the photo is a little overoptimistic, but southern Michigan is still in line for some warm weather this weekend.
In fact, looking back in the WBCK weather archives, it is clear we have a shot at matching, if not breaking some record high temperatures. Here's how it looks:
Saturday, February 18, 2017
Record High: 58 degrees, set in 1961
Forecast High: 56 degrees
Sunday, February 19, 2017
Record High: 60 degrees, set in 1994
Forecast High: 54 degrees
Monday, February 20, 2017
Record High: 60 degrees, set in 1930
Forecast High: 58 degrees
With plenty of sunshine in the forecast Friday through Monday, perhaps we have a chance to push those numbers up a little - and even break some records! In fact, the National Weather Service thinks southwest Michigan will see daytime high temperatures in the 50's through Tuesday, February 21, 2017.
