Metro Detroiters Soaking Up The Pre-Spring Sun
ST. CLAIR SHORES (WWJ) - This could be a record breaker in metro Detroit with an expected high of 76 degrees. It has many people doing something they’ve never done before in March, like going to the beach.
Tara Lawrence of St. Clair Shores spent Monday afternoon rollerblading at Lake St. Clair Metro Park.
“Oh my gosh, it’s beautiful – I love it … it’s beautiful out,” said Lawrence.
But Gary Cabbell says he worries about global warming.
“It’s a reality and I think that it’s something that we should be concerned about, as far as, you know, getting things corrected for the earth,” said Cabbell. “We live on this earth so we need to be concerned with global warming, yes.”
Cabbell took a stroll on the beach with his wife saying , “I keep forgetting this is March. It’s like June.”
Thomas Kennuth is with the Lake St. Clair Metro Park and says this is unusually busy. “This March is the busiest March on record that I certainly can recall, since I’ve been here for 14 years,” said Kennuth.
Garvin Gentry of Sterling Heights says “It’s a little weird to be this warm this time of year … but I like it, oh it’s great.”
Tuesday temperatures should beat the 73 degree record set in 1918 and Wednesday’s record high of 73 set in 1991 should also be broken.
