Snow gone.

News year’s eve. 2022 is now almost in the record books. The year went by very fast. What will 2022 be remembered in the weather news? I would say for Michigan the top two weather events for 2022 would be the May tornado in Gaylord and the December blizzard here in west Michigan. I will […]

Falling Temps Today

Somehow it just feels so wrong waking up with temps in the low 50s this morning.  This has been several days of extremes that is for sure.  All the snow is gone in Otsego with the exception of Bittersweet Ski Resort – they still have 16 runs and trails open though I don’t know for […]

Warmer with Light Rain & Fog

Yesterday we had some sun and warmer temps.  The high was 45° and the low was 27°. The temperature will be climbing today with many locations topping out in the 45 to 50-degree range. Light rain and fog may develop during the afternoon and more so this evening. A cold front arrives Friday with more showers […]

Warming Trend – Weather History

We begin our thaw today, turning our dead-end road into a pothole-filled mud run at the Weather Center.  Yesterday was our last below-freezing day for the week with a high of 27° and a low of 17°.  Today will be partly sunny with temperatures rising to nearly 40° with breezy conditions, winds coming from the […]

Last of the Arctic Air

Other than isolated flurries to start the day, it will be a dry day for most locations. High temperatures will end up in the mid-20s to upper-20s as we creep out of the colder air. The southwest winds will increase to 10 to 20 mph. The arctic airmass which has prevailed over the past week […]

No Watches or Warnings!

The weather is settling down today and the roads are improving.  We traveled to my stepdaughter’s house east of Planwell yesterday and the roads were in fairly good condition.  With the exception of the wind, this storm underperformed the November storm by about a foot of snow in the Otsego area. Lansing Forecast Grand Rapids […]

Merry Christmas

This is the day of reflection, of giving.  I was raised in the church, so this is the day we reflect on the birth of Christ thus the name Christmas.  No matter your beliefs, this is a day of giving, sacrifice, love, respect, and the conscious need to put others’ needs above ourselves.   I hope […]

Christmas Eve

Good morning. Here at Grand Rapids, it has been snowing since 2PM on Thursday. Here in MBY it is hard to get good snowfall measurements but of the 6 that I took the range is from 8” to 15” and I have a drift of just over 2 feet. Note this is the total on […]

Bitterly Cold – Blizzard Continues

First, happy birthday to my wife and SS.  This will be a great day for festivities indoors, over the phone, or via video conference.  Temperatures have been falling since last evening from just above freezing to our current 7° at 5 am.  Temps will struggle to rise into the low teens today with blizzard conditions […]

Blizzard Warning – Winter Storm Warnings – PM Update

Looking at point forecasts for southwest Michigan I am not seeing an overwhelming amount of snow, maybe a foot or so for most of our forecast area through Sunday morning, however, point forecasts have to be taken with a grain of salt as they are the judgment of a computer at the NWS in Grand […]
