The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) Parts of the lower 48 states could see temperatures up to 40 degrees below average as the effects of a massive storm that battered parts of Alaska moves east.

Bob Oravac, lead forecaster with the National Weather Service in College Park, Maryland, said Sunday that northern Wisconsin and Michigan's upper peninsula are expected to see up to a foot or more of snow early this week.

While the storm has weakened, it is triggering temperatures far below normal. Arctic air is expected in the northern high plains Sunday and central plains Monday.

The storm, fueled by the remnants of Typhoon Nuri, peaked Friday with sustained winds of 70 mph and gusts up to 96 mph on Alaska's Shemya Island.

Oravec said winds are gusting around 45 mph in Adak in the Aleutian chain.
