Think warm thoughts: 60 degree weather CAN happen in January

On December 26th, an extended stretch of cold weather forced its way into Michigan and the rest of the Midwest and isn't budging. 

You know what sounds nice right now? Margaritas, baseball, and sunshine. Sure, we can still have margaritas and we TECHNICALLY do have sunshine. But it's cold. 

So cold, in fact, that going outside in just your bare skin last week could have led to frostbite in 10 minutes. On Friday, a wind chill advisory was issued as the wind made it feel like an arctic -30 Fahrenheit in some places. 

Even when the sun came up, it didn't make it feel any warmer with the RealFeel being measured at -14.

The good news is that it's finally getting above freezing this week -  so we got that going for us.

Back to the margaritas though. Let's say it was 61 degrees outside. Would you find a patio and enjoy a frozen concoction? If you said yes, you could have in 1997. That's when Detroit hit a record high of 61 degrees on January 5th.

Compare that to the negative temperature we got this year and, well, that sounds spectacular right now.

Bring on baseball, frozen drinks, and warmer weather. Please.
