Even though the month of December is fast approaching, a nice push of mild air kept parts of the Midwest feeling like early October. Tuesday afternoon high temperatures soared into the 60s from Chicago to Buffalo and points south. Temperatures were 10 to 20 degrees above normal in these areas.
Several communities climbed into record territory. The city of Flint, Michigan set a new record high temperature of 66 degrees. Elsewhere, record high temperatures were tied in Springfield, Missouri (73 degrees) and Green Bay, Wisconsin (58 degrees).
But will this warmth last? It’s not looking too promising. In fact, high temperatures throughout the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes will be noticeably cooler for the rest of the week. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s.
Looking beyond, models suggest that a bigger cool down could be in the works next week. Keep it tuned to WeatherNation for the very latest.
