A number of record high temperatures were established Tuesday, on what was more like a mid-summer day than early October.

Temperatures in the 80’s blanketed all of northern Michigan in advance of a cold front that will usher in much colder air – as much as 40 degrees cooler by Friday.

According to the National Weather Service, the mercury reached a high of 86 degrees in the Alpena area Tuesday, breaking the previous high for October 9 of 83 degrees, set in 1949 and 2011.  The temp in Alpena was also the highest temperature or one of the highest in all of northern Michigan.

Record high temperatures were also set or tied in Gaylord, Houghton Lake and Traverse City.

The normal high for this time of year is 58 degrees in Alpena, with a low of 38 degrees.
