Unusually Mild Temps in Detroit today

No, you're not dreaming, really is 58 degrees outside right now. And the picture for this post was actually taken this afternoon when I ventured out to the edge of the riverfront on this unusual, but welcomed, mild December day.

Although today's high temp in the D hit 61 degrees, it wasn't high enough to qualify as a record-breaker. According to the National Weather Service forecast office, the Motor City hit 68 degrees one day during December 1998.

One thing I can say about today, though, is if today's weather is any indication of the year ahead for Detroit, I must say: it's lookin' great.

Happy New Year!
