Friday marks the 63rd day of sub-freezing temperatures in Upper Michigan.
What does that mean? That means that the U.P. is within striking distance of the current record for consecutive days below freezing, which is 72.
The last day the Upper Peninsula had a temperature reading of above 32 degrees was December 5, 2013. This means that the record from the winter of 1978-79 would be tied on February 16.
How likely is it that the record will be broken? It's hard to say, but temperatures are expected to reach the mid-to-upper 20s late next week, which will keep things interesting. This could put an end to our hot streak of cold temps.
In the name of fun and hopes of breaking the record, we created a countdown timer to the record-breaking day here.
