The first warm day of spring

Here's what I wrote on my Facebook page earlier tonight.
It's a gorgeous night, so [my wife] and I have the heat off and the windows open, enjoying the warm breeze from the south.
As for how warm, I'll let the Detroit Free Press tell you.

Temps expected to soar to 65 degrees in metro Detroit
It won't be a record-setter, but temperatures today are expected to soar to 65 degrees in metro Detroit, according to the National Weather Service.

The record high for March 7 at Metro Airport is 76 degrees, set in 2000, meteorologist Matt Mosteiko said today from the agency's office in White Lake Township. And the record low is a frigid 2 degrees, set in 1913. The normal high is 42 degrees, and low is 26, he added.
It's expected to be breezy and partly cloudy with peeks of sunshine today, with the temperature peaking at about 2 p.m. Rain is expected to move into the region around midnight, with an overnight low of 52 and an 80% chance of precipitation, Mosteiko said.
Yeah, it's nice, but it's not going to last until tomorrow. As for what's in store, here's the latest weather report from WOOD-TV, which looks at space weather in addition to the forecast for the western half of the state.

Some cooler weather will move in before we get warm again, Bill Steffen says. And a magnificent solar storm.
The weather is not returning to the deep freeze again, but will warm up after turning merely cooler. So far, it looks like I was right to believe Staten Island Chuck over Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day.
