Today won’t be bad at all. In fact right now I see it is lightly snowing. It’s quite prety with the sun poking through the clouds.
The weekend is really looking nice. Temperatures up to 14C and sun. Lets hope that forecast holds. It’s not quite the crazy weather they’re getting back east, but at least it’s a tad above normal (11C is normal) for us.
Pellston, MI: record high broken by 32°F
Pellston, Michigan in the Northern Lower Peninsula is called “Michigan’s Icebox”, since it frequently records the coldest temperatures in the state, and in the entire nation. But the past five days, Pellston has set five consecutive records for hottest March day. Yesterday’s 85° reading broke the previous record for the date (53° in 2007) by a ridiculous 32°, and was an absurd 48°F above average.
