Meteorological Winter ends tomorrow, February 28th, and it will almost certainly end with a record low temperature for the date in both Flint and Saginaw.
Flint's record low for the date is -6°.
We expect to break that record by around 10° with a forecast low of -16° (see image 1).
Saginaw's record low for February 28th (at MBS airport) is 2° above zero.
The forecast low is -12°, so we expect to smash that record by an even larger margin.
If the -16° low verifies tomorrow, we'll also set another interesting standard in Flint.
This will be the coldest low temperature for so late in the season.
A low of -15° was recorded on February 25th, 1993, but there has never been a temperature of -15° or colder beyond February 25th heading into the next season.
A light southerly flow should boost our highs into the middle teens by late Friday afternoon, and temperatures may even rise Friday night as some light snow tries to work into the area from the northwest.
