Extremely cold and lake effect snow showers possible Tuesday

The high temperature for today that’s going into the record books is 26 degrees in Alpena, observed shortly after midnight — this is the coldest high temperature on record for November 11 in Alpena. The old record for coldest high temperature on November 11 was 28 degrees in 1979. During the day, the warmest temperature was 24 degrees, as shown below.

A storm system passing to our south gave our area widespread snow showers earlier today. Late-day, winds out of the north generated lake effect snow off of Lake Huron. Lake effect snow showers will remain possible through much of tomorrow, then drier conditions are expected from tomorrow night until Wednesday afternoon.

Low temperatures overnight will drop to about 12 degrees in Alpena. Winds at 5-10 mph will create wind chills close to 0-5, which is what it will feel like onto exposed skin late tonight and early tomorrow morning.

A few snow showers are possible tomorrow, although they will be scattered throughout Northeast Michigan and not as widespread. High temperatures will reach only around 22 degrees with a breeze from the northwest.

Tomorrow will be extremely cold with highs only in the lower 20s. Wednesday will start with dry weather, then a few flurries are possible in the evening and nighttime. High temperatures will get into the upper 20s on Wednesday. Thursday will be slightly milder, although highs in the middle 30s are still colder than ‘normal’ for mid-November. Mainly dry conditions are likely Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
