ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WJBK) -- Weather Authority Ben Bailey says many parts of Michigan will be meeting or beating record-high temperatures over the next 24 hours.

Bailey says high temperatures are expected to match a record high Tuesday of 58 degrees set in 1914. He says the temperature Wednesday is expected to top the record of 53 for that day in 1969.

Strong south winds and a strong jet stream are bringing temperatures and precipitation more typical of the southern U.S.

FOX 2's Amy Andrews spoke with Royal Oak citizens who enjoy the break from last weeks sub-zero wind chills. Click the video player to hear more.

The weather pattern also has brought dense fog advisories until 11 a.m. Wednesday for counties south of 8 Mile Road. Flood watches are in effect for the northern counties into the thumb through Wednesday morning.

He says the winter warmth ends with a cold front coming Wednesday.
