Fair weather will continue today across Southwest Lower Michigan with a good deal of sunshine and very warm temperatures for February. Normal highs today range from 33 to 37 degrees, but we will be 20 degrees warmer than that. Readings should top out in the mid to upper 50s in most areas, the exception being north of Grand Haven up the shore with a wind off a cold Lake Michigan.
A stationary front sagging into the area from the northwest tonight and Wednesday will bring scattered rain showers late tonight and tomorrow. A low traversing the Southern Great Lakes region will bring rain Wednesday night that will try to change over to snow on Thursday. Some snow accumulation is possible on Thursday into Thursday evening.
Forecast uncertainty remains higher than normal, but it appears both locally heavy rain and snow are possible at this point. The best chance for snow will come on Thursday. The rainfall may bring additional river rises in some areas.
At this point the NAM is predicting 1.35 to close to 2″ of rain – dependent on the course of the low pressure it is showing around 10 to 12 inches of snow for Thursday. This would be the heavy wet stuff. Keep in mind there is still a lot of uncertainty on the development and path – we should have a better idea tomorrow.
