More High Temperature Records Challenged Through Tuesday

Posted at 10:53 PM, Nov 08, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — Good Sunday evening everyone! We have been flirting with record warmth for several days now, and we finally set a daily record high today at 74 degrees in Lansing! That replaces the previous daily record of 71 degrees which was set all the way back in 1915. Don’t worry, we are staying warm at least for the next two days before we return to normalcy on Wednesday with classic November temps.

Ahead of that though, we remain under the influence of a broad upper level ridge of high pressure which is pulling warm southern air northward and keeping the cooler Canadian air north of the border. Under the ridge, we will continue to bake tomorrow and Tuesday with temps climbing into the 70s both days. Tomorrow features plenty of sunshine once again but on Tuesday, clouds thicken up ahead of a cold front. A few showers are possible Tuesday afternoon, but the best chance comes along the frontal passage during the evening hours, and we could see a few downpours and gusty winds as well. Behind the front, much cooler and dry into the next weekend. We will see seasonable temps in the upper 40s and low 50s but those are going to feel even colder after this stretch of 60s and 70s!

Next Saturday night/Sunday we could see some more showers as another system looks to make an approach.

Have a fantastic week everyone! -Meteorologist Caleb Meute
