A warm front and resulting southerly winds were enough to boost temperatures to the mid 40s and 50s Wednesday, March 7 across Upper MIchigan. Here at the Marquette NWS Office in Negaunee, we topped out right at 50 degrees for the day! So that brought about the question: When was the last time we hit 50 degrees at our office? What about the rest of Upper Michigan?
Despite a mild winter, we haven't seen temperatures this high since last November. Check below for a list of towns nearest you, and the last time they hit 50 degrees or higher...
|City/Station||Temperature (degrees F)||Date|
|Marquette NWS Office - Negaunee||52||11/7/2011|
(Water Filtration Plant)
Keep in mind that many of these stations report 24 hour data on the following morning, so high temperatures could have actually been reached during the PREVIOUS day.
High pressure will be moving back in by Saturday bringing with it yet another strong warm up through the first half of the workweek. Will we set any records?? We will have to wait and see...
