Spring-like temperatures blanketed all of northern Michigan and much of the Upper Peninsula Thursday, with record high temperatures for January 11 shattered in many places.

But the one-day reprieve from winter temperatures will be a distant memory this weekend as more arctic air moves into the region.

According to the National Weather Service, record high temperatures Thursday, were established in Alpena, Houghton Lake, Traverse City, Sault Ste. Marie and many other locations.

The mercury reached a high of 51 degrees in Alpena, breaking the previous high for January 11 of 50 degrees, set in 2012.

The normal daytime high for this time of the year is 27 degrees.

Low temperatures are forecast to be in the single digits tonight and tomorrow night, with wind chills of 10 to 20 degrees below zero.  Cold air is expected to remain over the region through the middle of next week, with average or near average temps returning by Thursday.
