Berkley, Michigan weekly forecast 3/16-3/22
There are a couple storms systems that will be impacting the area over the next several days. The first storm, a clipper type system, is about to begin its impacts. Precipitation should be all snow and some decent, quick accumulations are possible. A winter weather advisory is in effect for Genesse, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Saginaw, Shiawassee, and St. Clair counties until 10am Saturday. Snow accumulations of 2-4" in a 6hr time period can be expected. After this clipper moves out, there is the potential for a bigger storm early next week. Right now, it looks like there will be a mix of precipitation with not a lot of snow accumulations. Depending on if the models shift track/ trend warmer or colder this may change. It is something that needs to be monitored. Otherwise, the weather will be seasonably cool and partly cloudy. I did a quick snowfall map, seen below, to get my ideas out and since the clipper is affecting me.
