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.

One could almost say that our weather is boring. But on the other hand, it's typical for February in Michigan. The past four days have brought temps hovering around freezing, skies have been mostly cloudy, winds have been moderate, and there has been intermittent snow flurries. The forecast is showing that we could see quite a bit of sun tomorrow. That would be a welcome change.
We don't have much snow cover at this time. The only snow is where the banks and drifts were and it never got quite warm enough for those to melt. One local meteorologist is saying that we could see the 50s next week.
Right now (7:15 PM EST), our temp is 18F, the humidity is 48% and skies are cloudy. Winds are from the west at 6 mph, and the dew point is 13F. The barometer is 30.03" and rising.
Tonight: Snow showers likely, mainly before 11pm. Cloudy, then gradually becoming partly cloudy, with a low around 8. Wind chill values as low as -3. North wind 8 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 22. Wind chill values as low as -3. West wind around 7 mph.
Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 15. South wind 6 to 13 mph.
Washington's Birthday: A chance of rain after 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 42. Breezy, with a south wind 15 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
Monday Night: Rain, mainly before 1am. Low around 34. Breezy, with a southwest wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
