Detroit ties record low temperatures for Nov. 9

Friday morning was cold - so cold, in fact, that it tied a record low for the coldest it's ever been on this day since records have been kept. As of 8 am, it was 19 degrees in Detroit, tying the coldest temperature in the Motor City since 1913.

According to the National Weather Service, the 19 degree temperature was set as of 8 am and is 20 or 25 degrees lower than it was Thursday morning. It's not going to get much warmer, with highs only expected to hit 30, just a few degrees above the record minimum high of 28, also set in 1913.

The November cold snap is bringing record-breaking cold temperatures to cities across Michigan including Flint which was 16 degrees, beating the 2003 record of 17, and Saginaw which was 15, a degree lower than the 1926 record.

Beyond the cold, we're getting some of the first lake effect snow bands off of Lake Huron. Up in the Thumb, Bad Axe and Port Huron are all going to see some snow showers Friday morning while flurries have been spotted in the Metro Detroit area.

If 19 isn't cold enough, it's felt even colder with feels like temperatures in the low teens thanks to the winds. 

The weekend will be back in the 40s and we'll be back in the 50s by the end of next.
