Winds from the northwest have generated lake effect snow showers off of Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. On the edge of some lake effect snow bands, Alpena has gotten just a few on/off flurries. Periods of snow have been more persistent north and west of Alpena. As winds lighten and shift direction, the chance of lake effect snow in Northeast Michigan will shut off heading into early Wednesday.
Winds from the northwest also helped bring cold temperatures. Highs today reached only 34 degrees in Alpena. Many places in the Upper Peninsula had temperatures that stayed stuck in the 20s. Wednesday will start with cold temperatures. By Thursday, winds from the southwest will bring much warmer temperatures to our area.
Wednesday, high temperatures will be near 40 degrees. Temperatures will warm to the middle 50s Thursday afternoon. Highs will reach the 50s again Friday. High temperatures will return to values near normal for the second half of November over the weekend with highs in the lower 40s.
