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.

We had a little snow this morning but not enough to add to our snow cover depth. But today should see a substantial decrease in the white stuff as significantly warmer temps move into the state. We have a little over 16 inches at this time and much of that will be gone over the next few days. Unfortunately, moderate to heavy rain is in the forecast for tomorrow and with the frozen ground, that won't be a good thing. Some forecasts are calling for as much as a half an inch by tomorrow night. This is not happy news for the winter sports enthusiasts in our area.
Right now (9 AM EST), our temp is 28.2F, the humidity is 80% and skies are cloudy. The dew point is 27F and winds are from the south at 4 mph. The pressure is 30.14" and steady. Yesterday's high was 23F which happened just before midnight, and the low was -21F early yesterday morning. Temps were on the rise all day. Our record high for Jan 9 is 56F set back in 1950, and the record low (until yesterday) was -14F set back in 1984.
Overcast. High 37F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph.
