Cold Temps Expected In Michigan Into Next Week

Posted: Updated:

IRONWOOD, Mich. (AP) - Cold temperatures and snow are expected in Michigan into next week after an arctic blast moved through the state.

The lowest readings Friday morning are in the Upper Peninsula, including zero degrees in Ironwood and 1 degree in Iron Mountain.

Temperatures reached a spring-like 63 degrees in parts of southern Michigan and the mid-40s in the Upper Peninsula early Thursday before frigid air pushed into the state. Readings dropped, with the highest around 30 on Friday morning in southern Michigan.

Snow and freezing rain are expected in places, making travel difficult. Forecasters say lake-effect snow is possible in the U.P. and parts of western Michigan.

Gale warnings are in effect Friday for Lake Superior, with waves expected to be 18 feet to as high as 27 feet.
