We are to expect a high temperature today in the 50s with plenty of sunshine. It has been warm enough lately for the ground to thaw and yesterday I spotted a farmer plowing his field. We had January weather in December and now it looks like we are having March weather in January. At least for now. One year ago today, January 12, 2005, the high temperature in southwest Michigan was 59 degrees. The day before saw cold temperatures and some snow accumulation. If you have lived in Michigan for any period of time you should know by now that this is typical Michigan weather.
