Living in Michigan can be exciting. We can have every weather condition known to man happening in the State at one time.

The subject came up yesterday as to how this winter compares to last year. I went back a year and compared the snow cover in various Michigan cities to what there is this year on CoCoRahs. Here are some results of what I found.
This year, Marquette has 15" as compared to 12" last year. Ishpeming has 26" as compared to only 19" last year. Those were the only two cities that have more snow this year than last. Others were Grand Rapids with 5.5" this ye...

With last year's big snowstorm still fresh in our minds, I am not complaining about the weather that we have had this season. We are having extremely cold temperatures but last year at this time, we had very cold temps with 17 inches of snow over an inch of ice. Highs in the single digits is a bit hard to live with however. We have about two inches of snow on the ground. Snow showers are in our forecast for most of this week with no significant accumul...

Yesterday, we had it all. First it was rain, then freezing rain, and then it all turned to snow. The temperature stayed right at the freezing mark so we have 0.25" of frozen slush this morning. Unfortunately, we wil see our temps declining all day today as the extreme frigid air moves in on us. We will see below zero for the first time this winter season, and highs will only reach the teens by mid week. This is typical January weather for Michigan.

We had a beautiful sunrise to start our day, and sunny skies are expected to remain most of today. The weather will be perfect for getting out and walking off some of those calories from yesterday. The mild temps are hanging on for an extra day from the original forecast but this will probably be the end of it for awhile. Highs in the upper 20s to low 30s will be the normal from here on.
Right now (9 AM EST), our temp is 35F, skies are p...

Fog seems to be an everyday event lately although yesterday was quite nice. Our temperatures feel like spring but we should start seeing more seasonable weather by week's end. We had rain yesterday afternoon and night leaving 0.19 inches in my gauge. This morning is very damp but mild. One year ago, we had four inches of snow cover, but none so far this year with the exception of that snowstorm in late November. There are no complaints from me of thi...
