Mild Temperatures Buffer Incoming Winter Storm for Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 9:20 PM GMT on January 31, 2016


We seem to be lucking out with this latest winter storm which is heading our way.  As it appears now, most of lower Michigan will remain in the mild air with just rain.  Any snow or freezing rain will affect the northern- most counties as well as the U.P.  This morning was cloudy, then the rain began shortly after 1 PM.  We now have fog with periods of light drizzle.  Temperatures  have dropped a bit from this morning.

A Sunny But Very Cold Morning in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 2:05 PM GMT on January 19, 2016



Our morning is beginning with very cold temperatures and sunny skies.  It looks quite pleasant in spite of the frigid weather. 
We should see the start of a warm-up today with temps expected to reach the m id 20s and above the freezing mark by the weekend.  A local meteorologist is predicting another bout of above-normal temps coming like what we had in December.  I hope he is right.  We continue to have about 1.5 inches of snow cover but man...

The rain began around 5 PM yesterday and continued until after midnight when it changed to all snow.  We have received about 2 inches so far and it is still snowing.  The advisory remains in effect until 1 PM today.  We seem to be right on the line between the lighter amounts of snow and the heavier amounts, so not really sure how much we will get.  NOAA says that we will total about three inches.  Temperatures will continue to drop today and the next few...

Seasonable Weather in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 2:08 PM GMT on January 04, 2016

More Wind, Rain for Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 2:06 PM GMT on November 18, 2015

Yesterday began with cloudy skies and the promise of rain . . . . which never happened.  In fact, the sky cleared in the afternoon and it turned out to be a lovely day.  Radar showed all of the showers either skirting us to the north or falling apart before getting here.  The same with last night.   Which was more surprising was that our temp never dropped much below 60° overnight.  Unfortunately, it was much too windy to have the wind...
