Michiganders are getting a break from the bitter cold of winter in the North with the last few days being in the 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s.

Today was projected to be a whopping high of 58 degrees. This will be the highest recorded temperature in January since 1980 with a high of 55 degrees.

Cities all over the “Good Ol’ High Five state” are getting warm weather. Muskegon, for example, comes in with a high of 56 degrees.

Although it’s warm out, the sun won’t be shining as Meteorologists are saying that it will be rainy and cloudy all day.

The warmth won’t be staying long today as the temperature will be dropping below freezing between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. Friday morning. The temperature is forecasted for a high of 20 degrees with moderate temperatures of 20’s and teens cooling the rest of the week back down.

So, what does this mean? ICE! Everywhere just… Ice.

If anyone is driving tomorrow or doing any traveling at all, be on the lookout and be safe!

Meteorologists from the Weather Service say that the warm air is due to an active storm track blowing the warm air from the Gulf of Mexico where the temperatures are ranging between the 50’s and 70’s.

Although the warmth will not stay, which is saddening for many Michiganders, we will technically only have around two more months until Spring, so start the countdown and be safe traveling.
