Snow Storm in Mid December?

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 7

Thought this is a crazy snow map for those of you who are wishing for some white stuff.  This is the latest GFS model through December 14.  Look at the snow blooming after the 10th!  This is showing up to 40 inches for Nebraska and 3 feet in areas to the north.

Not sure if this storm will materialize, the GFS is the only model picking up on it right now, so we will have to keep an eye on it.

Cold air is still predicted to come into the area after the 9th of December after our mild period this week and next with a low pressure area moving south of the state by the 14th.  For today though a weak cold front will bring scattered showers this afternoon then high pressure will provide fair weather for Wednesday. Low pressure brings some light rain or snow late Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

If that plays out, this whole be the 3rd or 4th perfect Winter in a row! The only thing better would be to get all 50 inches at once, then have it all melt 3 days later!
