Sunny skies, near record warmth on tap today in Ann Arbor
We haven’t had much winter weather to endure so far this year, but Tuesday the Ann Arbor area will get a very early taste of spring.
The forecast calls for a mostly sunny day with a high of 53 to 57. Those temperatures will approach the record for the date, but are unlikely to break it, said Dave Gurney, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township. The record for Jan. 31 in metro Detroit is 60 degrees, Gurney said.

Temperatures will stay in the above-normal range for the next few days, though not in the 50s. After a possibility of rain Tuesday night, the forecast for the rest of the week calls for partly to mostly sunny days through Monday. A high temperature of 45 is expected Wednesday. Temperatures will cool to mid-30s by Monday.
Will the warmer than average trend hold for February? That’s anybody’s guess, Gurney said, though the government’s Climate Prediction Center says temperature and precipitation are likely to be above normal for the month.
