Berkley, Michigan weekly forecast 1/19-1/125

Discussion:
Using the GFS and NAM precip, wind speeds, and temperature maps, I came up with my forecast for this week. Watching a cold front and trough slide into SE MI setting the stage for the week. Cold arctic air will rush in and stay for a while. Some lake effect snow will reach us Sunday and Monday. There is a potential, shown by models, of a snow system impacting the area. It is too far out to know accumulation totals or track but it is something to watch. Old man winter is finally paying us a well-deserved visit.

Berkley, Michigan weekly forecast 1/12-1/18

Discussion:
This forecast period has a crazy temperature swing that resembles a March-like pattern. An unusual set-up for this time of year closes today. Our weather has been dictated primarily by a ridge sitting over our area. This has caused temperatures to rise into the 40s and 50s which has eliminated most of our snow pack. This is expected to change as a system will move through here with rain Saturday night and mix precipitation Sunday. A cold front will cool temperatures back down into the 30s. The work week will feature relatively quiet and cool conditions besides a possible clipper system Wednesday into Thursday. Hopefully we can get some cold air to move in and stick around for the rest of winter.

Have a great night/morning and I'll have a new forecast next week. I'm working on my TCR's at a slow pace due to being busy and sick over break. When I get time after mid-terms some more steady work should resume on them.
