It's going to be one of those days when you might need to warm up your car for a minute or two or flip on the heat in places like upstate New York or much of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
The National Weather Service office in Marquette, Michigan, recorded its first big frost in the interior areas of the Upper Peninsula Friday morning. Some frost was even possible for some inland valleys of the central and northern Appalachians.
Northern Wisconsin and northern Michigan have Freeze Warnings in effect through Saturday morning as temperatures are expected to dip below 32 degrees Friday night and early Saturday.

Low temperatures in the 40s and 50s are expected at night as the large high-pressure system settles in.
"Can't fall just come in toe-tapping just a little bit?" Frazer said. "Why does it just have to be like ‘whoosh! There you go?’"
The FOX Forecast Center said temperatures will generally remain near or below average through the middle of next week across the Midwest and Northeast.
