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.

Along with strong winds, our very cold temps continue with no end in sight. We have about an inch of snow on the ground and intermittent snow showers appear throughout the day with no real new accumulation. Strong winds make it very hard to measure. This morning is beginning with a little sun but mostly cloudy skies and they are telling us that we can expect a significant snow event this Friday and Saturday. At this time they are only predicting about two inches of snow but that remains to be seen. My area has been lucky so far in terms of precipition.
Right now (9:15 AM EST), our temp is 12.6°F, the humidity is 53% and winds are from the WSW at 8 mph giving us a wind chill of 1°F. The dew point is 5°F and the pressure is 30.32" and steady. Visibility is 10 miles. We received 0.02" of melted precip amounting to a trace of new snowfall. Yesterday's high was 19°F and the low was 5°F.
Today...Breezy. Mostly cloudy with scattered light snow showers. Highs 15 to 19. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph...Increasing to 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 40 percent. Wind chills down to around 10 below.
Tonight...Mostly cloudy. Scattered light snow showers until 9 pm. Lows 14 to 18. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph...Decreasing to 5 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 30 percent.

Friday Night...Cloudy. Light snow likely after 1 am. Accumulations up to an inch. Lows 15 to 19. East winds 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 60 percent.
