Not as cold and mainly dry through the end of the week

Light snow will continue over Northern Michigan through most of this evening. Late overnight, this snow will begin to progress to the east and drier air will begin to move in.

The high temperature today reached only 22 degrees in Alpena — much colder than ‘normal’ high temperatures for the middle of November, close to 44 degrees. High temperatures below the freezing mark are shaded in blue. Temperatures today got up to the 30s and 40s across much of the Plains, shaded in green, and some of this milder air will progress into our area tomorrow.

High temperatures over the past three days only got into the 20s. While temperatures will remain below normal, some improvement is in sight. High temperatures for Thursday, Friday and Saturday will climb to the 30s.

Overnight, low temperatures will cool to about 20 degrees and snow showers will wind down. Mostly cloudy skies are expected throughout Thursday with only a minimal chance of passing flurries early. High temperatures will reach about 35 degrees and winds will come from the west, about 10 mph.

The next three days are looking mainly dry. Mostly cloudy skies are expected Thursday and afternoon highs will get into the middle 30s. High temperatures will reach the lower/middle 30s on Friday with plenty of clouds. Some sunshine is anticipated on Saturday with highs in the lower 30s. Looking ahead, a rain/snow mix is possible late Sunday and early Monday.
