High temperatures today reached 35 degrees in Alpena, and middle 30s was a common theme south of M-32. Highs were near 30 degrees in Cheboygan, Michigan and Marquette Michigan. Across the board, temperatures are running nearly 7-10 degrees above normal, so these values are “warm” for early January. Temperatures will become a touch cooler Friday, but we’ll trade a couple extra degrees of warmth for more blue sky.
Quiet weather persists across most of the Midwest. An area of high pressure over Wisconsin is blocking any active weather from reaching our area. A storm system that was developing off to the west yesterday has dropped southward. Parts of Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky saw some snow showers! A weak system producing some snow over areas of Montana and Wyoming will travel toward the southeast and weaken, it will not get close to us. Uneventful weather continues locally Friday and into the weekend.
High temperatures will be near 30 degrees Friday, a little closer to normal, with light winds from the north. Over the weekend, highs will climb to the lower 30s, about 5 degrees above normal.
