DETROIT (WWJ) – If you ever needed proof of how crazy Michigan weather can get — here it is.

It felt like spring in metro Detroit Wednesday morning, with temperatures flirting around 60 degrees and a nice, gentle breeze. To put that in perspective, on this day last year the region was in the middle of a bitter cold spell, with several inches of snow and temperatures barely making it out of the teens. Yet here we are, one year later and just 36 days away from Christmas, and the high temperature is forecasted around 65 degrees.

It would be nice if this unseasonably mild weather would stick around — but we all know that’s not going to happen.

Temperatures will start to slide Thursday to around 55 degrees and even though the sun will be out, the high temperature on Friday is only 45 degrees. Here’s where the forecast starts to take a turn for the worse.

“An arctic front is coming through Friday night into Saturday morning and we are expecting some snow showers that could put down a couple of inches of accumulation, especially north and west of metro Detroit,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Dean DeVore.

That’s right, we could wake up Saturday morning to see a fresh coating of snow on the ground. Go ahead and take a minute to let that sink in. Temperatures will barely break 35 degrees on Saturday and it will be even colder on Sunday with a high around 30 degrees. Consider the wind chill and those temperatures will feel even colder.
