Detroit, Flint, other cities in Michigan meeting or beating record-high temperatures
National Weather Service says temps to hover in upper 50s
Weather forecasters say many parts of Michigan will be meeting or beating high-temperature records.
Meteorologist Matt Mosteiko of the National Weather Service in Oakland County's White Lake Township says the Detroit area is expected to reach Tuesday's high temperature of 58 degrees set in 1914. He says the temperature Wednesday is expected to top the record of 53 for that day in 1969.
He says Flint, Saginaw and other areas also are expected "to make a run" at their record temperatures in the low 50s.
Mosteiko says strong south winds and a strong jet stream are bringing temperatures and precipitation more typical of the southern U.S. The weather pattern also has brought dense fog and flooding.
He says the winter warmth ends with a cold front coming Wednesday.
