SAGINAW, MI (WNEM/AP) -
Another round of record-breaking cold temperatures is following a storm that dumped more than 9 inches of snow on parts of southern Michigan.
TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak says clouds will move back into the area Thursday afternoon as highs climb into the mid 20s. Temperatures in the 40s return Friday under a mix of sun and clouds. However, colder air will return for the weekend. Daytime highs will fall into the 20s by Sunday.
The temperature at Detroit Metropolitan Airport dropped to 3 degrees Thursday morning, breaking the March 13 record low of 5 for Detroit set in 1896. Readings of zero to 25 degrees were reported around the state.
Temperatures were in the single digits in Ann Arbor, 10 degrees in Lansing and the teens in Grand Rapids. Warmer weather is expected Friday, with Detroit temperatures predicted in the 40s.
The snowstorm passed out of Michigan by Wednesday evening after dumping snow in wide areas of the southern and central Lower Peninsula. The weather service reported 9.3 inches of accumulation in Holly, northwest of Detroit, and 9 inches in Kalamazoo.
