Record setting warmth to be replaced by cold & snow

Thursday’s record-setting temperatures will be a distant memory after this weekend, when colder than normal temps blanket the region, along with lake-effect snow in some areas.

One of yesterday’s records was set in Alpena where the temperature reached 78 degrees, breaking the previous high mark for November 10 of 74 degrees, set in 2020. The norm for this time of the year is 47 degrees.

The National Weather Service says temperatures will fall throughout today and into the low 30’s tonight. Weekend highs are not expected to reach 40 degrees with nighttime lows in the mid-20’s. There’s a chance for snow showers starting tonight and continuing through Sunday night.

Some parts of northern Michigan could see accumulating snow over the weekend. Daytime highs in the 30’s are expected to remain in place throughout much of next week.
