I live right in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Our Great Lakes protect us from much of the extreme weather in other states.

Yesterday turned out to be not as bad as was predicted. We received no freezing rain as the precip began as all snow and quite heavy at that. The first squall that passed was moderate to heavy leaving about 1/4 inch which melted right away. Then a little later, the rain set in and was quite heavy at times. We received 0.49 inches. Around 9 PM, we had some thunder and lightning but that storm passed to our west and we just received a few sprinkles. We lost about 4 inches of snow cover. Wind will be our big issue today and it really picked up about 7 AM. I so hope that we don't lose power.
Right now (9 AM EST), our temp is 34.9°F, the humidity is 54% and winds are from the SSW at 16 mph, gusting to 34 mph. The pressure is 29.42 inches and rising. The dew point is 27°F and the wind chill is 26°F. Yesterday's high was 45°F and the low was 28°F.
Today...Windy. Light snow showers likely after 9 am until 5 pm. Accumulations around an inch. Highs 30 to 34 before noon...With temperatures steady or slowly falling the rest of the day. Southwest winds 20 to 30 mph...With gusts to 45 mph. Chance of snow 80 percent.

We received a llittle wet snow yesterday morning but it seemed to melt right away. We have sun once again this morning with mostly clear skies and that makes for a very cheery landscape. One local meteorologist is warning that we have another significant snow event coming which could drop up to 5 inches of snow early next week. Oh no! The good part is that temps will be in the mid to upper 40s following that, so what we get will melt right away as well as most of what is on the ground at this time. There is even rain in the forecast which really sounds good although it will make for very messy conditions.
Right now (9:30 AM EST), our temp is 10°F, the humidity is 42%, and winds are from the northwest at 10 mph. The dew point is -1°F and the pressure is 29.99 inches and rising. Visibility is 10 miles. Yesterday's high was 28°F and the low was 21°F. It will be significantly cooler today. Sunrise was at 7:34 AM and sunset will be at 6:07 PM.

We received another 1.1 inch of snow since yesterday and snow flurries continue this morning. Temps are a bit milder and there is very little wind. The trees all have a fresh layer of snow and everything is white. This is getting to be a daily routine for Mother Nature. Temps continue to be below normal and we keep hoping for a bit of warm air to move in. It almost seems like we'll never see above-freezing temps again. It has indeed been a long, hard winter for Michigan. All areas in southern lower Michigan are recording record to near record amounts of snow for the season. It's time for it to end.
Right now (9:15 AM EST), our temp is 14.9°F, the humidity is 61% and we have light snow flurries and cloudy skies Winds are calm and the barometer reads 30.05 inches and rising. We have about 18 inches of snow cover. Yesterday's high was 19°F and the low was 0°F.
