Michigan is Getting a December Heat Wave
We’re about into December, and that usually means pretty cold temperatures in our parts. I, personally, don’t like the snow and cold at all. I wish we could just have a little bit around the holidays and then fast-forward to spring. But, when you live in our area, you’re going to get some cold temperatures. But, you take the good with the bad, and we do live in a beautiful state, so I’ll handle the cold during these winter months. The good news, for people like me who don’t like the cold, is that a December heat wave is coming to Michigan.
We’re not going to be out there in bikinis and trunks, soaking up the sun on the beach or anything. But, the forecast calls for higher than normal temperatures soon, and that warmer weather will last. Here’s the scoop on what areas are getting the warmest weather and when.
What to expect from this December heat wave
According to Weather.com, the state’s weather pattern is going to turn warmer than normal starting on Thursday (Nov. 30), and these above normal temperatures are on target to last for a few weeks. Instead of temperatures in the 30s, the state is projected to hit the upper 40s and event 50 starting Thursday and running for a while, at least through Monday, Dec. 11. While a few of the days will have highs in the 30s, mostly of them will be in the 40s, making these above normal temperatures for much of the state. Rain is also on the way, meaning we dodged the chance of having serious snow. In Detroit, the temperature will hit 49 on Thursday (Nov. 30), with the following day falling back to 39. But, then temperatures are projected to be in the 40s, even hitting nearly 50 on Dec. 8. So, a “December heat wave” might be a bit of a strong term for this weather. But, it’s certainly going to be warmer than it has been the past few days, and I’ll gladly take the upswing.
