Much colder Wednesday and Thursday

In Alpena, 3.7 inches of snow fell last night and this morning. A few scattered flurries will be possible Wednesday, but any new amounts will be minimal. High pressure located over central Canada will steer colder temperatures out of the north into our area. As this high pressure area gets closer, it will bring clearing skies Thursday.

High temperatures today reached 35 degrees in Alpena. Winds will come out of the northwest, and colder air currently reaching as far as Minnesota will advance into our area. Highs Wednesday will be noticeably colder.

Low temperatures overnight will cool to about 11 degrees in Alpena and 14 degrees in Oscoda. A few scattered flurries will be possible. Winds will come out of the northwest, about 10 mph.

Wind chills heading into early Wednesday will get close to zero — so it will be a chilly start to the day. Wind chills will be even colder early Thursday, around minus 5 to minus 10.

High temperatures will reach only about 21 degrees Wednesday afternoon, and any scattered flurries will amount to very little. Low temperatures will drop to about 2 degrees early Thursday, and wind chills will start well below zero. A mix of sun and clouds is expected with highs near 20 degrees Thursday afternoon. Friday will be bright with loads of sunshine, and warmer temperatures will move in, reaching the middle 30s. The weekend is looking dry with warm temperatures.
