A Record Setting Past - March 18th

Record high temperatures for this date, March 18th, were set in the recent past. Actually, record high temperatures for this date were set just one year ago when northern Michigan warmed to nearly 40 degrees above normal mid-March readings.

In contrast, one year later, a broad upper trough, centered over the Great Lakes, will keep temperatures this afternoon below normal for this date. Actually, temperatures this afternoon will have a hard time warming to freezing.
