Minneapolis has now set two outright monthly record high temperatures in the last 5 months (with records dating to 1872) - 92 in October, and 65 in February. Additionally, only one year exceeded the 98F reading from September (1931 - 104, on 9/10; and 99, on 9/8), and the 55F reading in January has been exceeded only twice (1/25/1944 - 58F; and 1/24/1981 - 57F). Honorable mention to August - the 98F reading has only been exceeded in 9 years (5 of them by just one degree).

Temps are over preforming again today. Full sun and already 50F here. Just stat padding the record # of 50+ temps this winter. 
 

Payback from last winter.

Prior to yesterday (records going back to 1893), Rockford's record high temp in DJF was 70F on 2/22/2017 and 2/25/2000. 

They hit 73F yesterday, and are already up to 73F at noon CST today.  Two days in a row of all-time record high temps for met winter, going back 130 years.

The current temperature at Detroit is 70F. This ties the February monthly record maximum.  Prior to this year, the only other dates on which it reached 70F are 2/24/2017 & 2/11/1999.

Also, only the third time on record in which it reached 70F during meteorological winter. The all-time December high is 69F, and January 67F.

What an absolutely historic day in Michigan! Traverse City is 70F -- that's a whopping 4F above the prior monthly record maximum and prior winter seasonal record maximum. Incredible. Likely to rise even more. Total obliteration.

Alpena at 65F, tying monthly and seasonal all time maxima.

This is like the winter equivalent of March 2012 or July 1934.

I feel like it has to be awhile since we've seen 70 in detroit in february.

Today will likely set a new monthly maximum, as the record is 70 in 2017/1999.

 

Fun fact- the only month to not hit 70 is January. The warmest temperature is 67° on Jan 25, 1950, however many areas registered over 70 that day, including 72 at Ann Arbor. I suspect present day DTW would have as well. On the flip side, the only month not to have a temperature in the 30s is july, all time low being 42 on July 6, 1972. So theoretically, it is possible, though extremely unlikely, for someone in Southeast Michigan to be as cold as the 30s or as warm as the 70s any month of the year.

The current temperature at both Flint and Saginaw is 69F, setting new monthly records and all-time winter seasonal high temperatures for both sites.

Up to 72F at both sites, as well as DTW. City Airport in Detroit is up to 73F.  Prior to today, the earliest 70+F reading at Saginaw and Flint was March 7, 2000 & March 7, 1987.

66 in Houghton Lake, Michigan, breaks the prior monthly record of 64F (1930) & seasonal record of 64F (2/1930 & 12/2001).

The temperature at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan has ticked up to 50F since that last observation. That value ties the February monthly high of 50F, set on February 16, 1921. Nowhere near the seasonal record though. Due to the lake effect, the warmest temperatures occur in early December.

65F at Green Bay ties the monthly record from 2/22/2017 & ties the seasonal record from 2/22/2017 & 12/16/2021. Some nearby airports registering 70F.

Without diving into the stats, with how snowy/cold febs have been here recently, and the thaws in January recently, you'd never guess we've never hit 70 in january. 

Looks like Detroit hit 72. Pretty incredible to break the all time feb high. Obviously alot of factors to take into account when trying to figure out why we're seeing warmer temps in winter recently.

You almost have to expect some historic snowstorm in a few weeks, when everyone just starts to get used to the continued 50s/60s.

Yeah but each year is different. The max in Jan this year was only 44. Toledo has hit 70 in Jan on a few different occasions (we had a crazy warm spell Jan 20-22, 1906, another strong nino) but it's still extremely rare.

Definitly flipped compared to recent winters. I was gonna head down to florida this weekend for the month of March but might stick around a few extra days since it looks to be in the 60s through the weekend.
