Thursday will be a day I refer to around this time of the year as “spring tease day” because of the high temperature we will see.

Highs will reach the mid-60s during the day, but it’ll be stormy and windy.

There will be a slight risk of severe thunderstorms on Thursday especially during the late afternoon and early evening due to a warm front pushing up from the south, according to forecasters.

Storms or not, we should all appreciate the short spring tease while it lasts, because temperatures will drop back down to seasonal norms following the warm front (high 30s to low 40s)

But I think things are shaping up around here and Mother Nature has probably pulled out of the deep freeze of winter.

Here is a weather slide from the National Weather Service in Detroit for Thursday:

Sorry winter-lovers, it looks like spring is kicking Old Man Winter out the door.

Forecasters are saying a big warm-up is in our future.

One of my favorite meteorologists to follow online is Mark Torregrossa of MLive.com.

In his latest weather article, Torregrossa says temperatures could rise into the 60s by late next week.

The reason for the warm-up is a storm system will bring several days of warm air from the south and into our region.

After the warmup, Torregrossa says it’s likely that we won’t see a significant deep freeze as we head into the spring season.
