High temperatures today reached only 16 degrees in Alpena along with scattered flurries. A noticeable breeze out of the west about 15 mph produced afternoon wind chill values close to 0. Afternoon temperatures in the teens are expected tomorrow, then the cold air will retreat to the north and east.
A few scattered flurries remain possible this evening, then we will see drier air for most of tomorrow with a mix of sun and clouds. There is a slim chance for patchy flurries in the evening, and that’s the last snowflake in the forecast through the end of this week. High pressure out of western Canada will slide into our area Thursday-Friday, giving us sunny skies.
Overnight low temperatures will drop to 0 degrees with a chance of flurries, although wind chill values will cool to around -10. Much of tomorrow is looking dry with high temperatures around 18 degrees.
After tomorrow, temperatures will gradually warm going into the weekend.

The sunshine continues on Friday as high temperatures warm to the lower 30s. Most of Saturday will end up dry, then a wintry mix will arrive late Saturday night or early Sunday.
