Snow Ending – Turning Colder

We had 2.1 inches of snow yesterday and overnight, bringing our total for Otsego to 10.7 inches for the month and 55.1 inches since November 1st (in Otsego).  Snowfall will end this morning and the warnings and advisories will expire at 10 am.  The highest snowfall totals are around the I96 corridor where 4 to […]

Another Round of Snow

We had a nice band of lake effect set up across southern Allegan County yesterday evening which dropped two or three more inches of snow.  I will get out the snowfall measurements later today.  With a southwest wind today most of the lake effect will fall from Ottawa and Kent Counties to the north. Grand […]

Winter Snows are Back

Temperatures will range from lower to mid-30s today. Snow showers, a few of which could be locally heavy, will affect locations mainly between the Lake Michigan shore and US-131. A couple of brief bursts of snow could also make their way toward US-127 late in the day. We have a Winter Weather Advisory for the […]

Advisories – Warnings – Weather History

We have a winter weather advisory until 10 pm for three to six inches of snow.  Snow will spread from south to north this morning as low-pressure moves across IN/OH. Accumulations of 3-6 inches are expected along the I-94 corridor…highest near Jackson. Two to three inches are expected along I-96 including Grand Rapids with lesser […]

More Clouds, of Course

The theme and title of this post seem consistent with most of the posts for this month.  We had just 12% of possible sunshine in December and we’re at a dismal 11.3% sun for January.  Some area forecasters are once again trying to perk us up by seeing perhaps a few peaks of the sun […]

Winter Temps – Wednesday Snow

We have another inch to add to our winter’s snowfall.  We have had 45.4 inches since the 1st of November and our first snowfall for January.  A few leftover flurries or freezing drizzle will end this morning, so watch out for some slick bridges and overpasses early on. Otherwise, dry conditions are expected today with […]

Light Snow Today

Light snow is forecast across parts of Lower Michigan from Sunday morning into the afternoon. Minor accumulation is expected (especially for January standards), and any travel-related impacts are likely to be limited. Most areas will see less than an inch of the white stuff.  A more significant system may move in for Wednesday. A transition […]

Colder Weather Returns

We lost another great musician yesterday, David Crosby, a folk-rock pioneer and one of the founding members of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, has died, he was 81.  He joins Jeff Beck, Fred White from Earth Wind and Fire, and Robbie Bachman from Bachman Turner Overdrive, who are all joined together in […]

Cloudy with Showers

I will be going to Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo tomorrow morning to have some work done to my heart.  Not sure how long I will be in there, but hopefully not more than a couple of days.  I will leave this blog in Slim’s capable hands for the duration. Look for occasional rain showers to […]

Rain Today – MLK Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Two events I remember from 1963 are the I have a dream speech of Martin Luther King Jr. and the assassination of John Kennedy.  This was a year of race riots in the south which reached as far north as Detroit.  I have always held in my heart that all […]
