(WXYZ) - So you made it throught the gray days of January and February!
It's March and you're looking for spring. While we are certain to warm up, even if it's only slowly, there are no doubt still some cold & snowy days ahead. But, don't lose hope!
This week, we'll do something that has been awfully hard to do this winter and it's bound to have you whistling a spring tune.
After Tuesday's snow, we'll find temperatures pushing into the 40s. Just barely on Thursday (forecast high of 40 on the nose).
Metro Detroit will push deeper into the 40s each day through the weekend. This would be the first time in almost two months that we will string together four or more days of 40 degrees or better. The last time we accomplished this semi-extended thaw was January 9-13, where temps peaked at 59 on the 12.
Is this spring? Maybe a taste. I'd still keep the snow shovel handy for another month... at least.

No, we're not going back to Beanie Babies and dial-up internet access. But we are looking at two days, today and tomorrow, with high temperatures in the 90s, which is unusual for September. Unusual, yes, but not unheard of.
