Cold Weekend

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 12

Our first week of November has been a cold one for sure – at 6:30am we have a temp of 20°  with a light coating of snow on the ground.  Long range models remain cold with slight moderation of temps late next week.  Many have noted the correlation between this November and last – below are the graphics related to last November in regards to temperature and precipitation.  We are only a week into the month so I would say it is to early to regard this month the same as last November.


Next is the comparison in snow cover between last November and the current graphic showing we have slightly more snow coverage than last year to date:


I hate going out on a limb giving a winter forecast because generally the limb will break – some years the forecasts are close and yet others fall by the wayside being the opposite as predicted.  If I were a betting man, which I am not, I would say we are going to have one of those winters which would be memorable bringing back the old adage of Michigan being a winter wonderland.

We may see some peeks of the sun today however we will be hard pressed to break the freezing mark.  Saturday should be dry then our next Arctic outbreak will arrive Sunday night bringing in the lake effect once again.

Winter guess? Always go within 10% of average and you’ll probably be right more than wrong. This past week is a good example of cool does not mean more snow as GR is still below average for snowfall. The way some carry on one would think we were 30 inches over average already. Nope.

10% of average? What a lame prediction! More like a cop out. We will be getting hammered with Snow! Get prepared now!

As for a winter guess??? Well I also do not like going out on limb for a seasonal guess. And for the upcoming winter season that is truer. If I was to make a bet my bet would be for a near average winter season (always a good place to start) my feeling is that one (or more) of the winter months will be warmer than average and the and for total snow fall (Oct to April) for Grand Rapids my guess would be in the 60 to 70” range. I know others will say it will be over 100”… Read more »

Good morning! Boy it is much colder here at my house then at the airport that is about 15 miles to my SE. The low here at my house was 16 and the current temperature is still just 17. But the official low at GRR looks to be a much warmer 23 but then again we do not live at the airport. The official H/L (at the airport) for yesterday was 34/24. For today the average H/L at Grand Rapids is 51/35 the record high is 72 set in 2009 and the record low is 16 set in 1991. The… Read more »
