Wolverines are Champions – WWA

THE WOLVERINES ARE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! Congratulations to the Wolverines for their resounding defeat of the Washington Huskies 34 to 13!  I felt sorry for Penix in the last quarter facing the Wolverine’s relentless defence but hats off to him for hanging in there to the end of the game even though he was obviously hurt. […]

Snowfall Tapering Off

We have 8 inches of snow on the ground this morning.  Southern Allegan County seems to have taken the brunt of the lake effect snow bands overnight.  Lake effect snow showers will continue this morning off of Lake Michigan. Local accumulations of 1-3 inches are possible this morning, near/west of Highway 131. Expect some slippery […]

Changes in Snow Patterns

I think back to the days of my youth (pre-1970s) when Michigan was referred to as the Winter Wonderland.  Those days before ski resorts had to use snowmaking machines to keep the hills and mountains white.  Seems we were always sledding and skiing on the weekends.  The graphic below shows the change in winter snow […]

Snow Showers Today

Moderate to heavy snow with rates around 1 inch per hour at times will result in hazardous travel conditions from northern Ottawa to Oceana and western Newaygo Counties. Isolated power outages will be possible in the areas of heaviest snowfall. Lighter snowfall amounts of around an inch are expected outside of these counties. Trick-or-treaters will […]

Falling Temps – Rain Changing to Snow

Yesterday we reached 53° for a high temperature which was a reasonably warmish early spring day.  Snow showers will redevelop this evening and continue through Saturday. High temperatures on Saturday will stay in the 20s, and winds will make it feel colder, as the variable lake-effect snow accumulates in many locations. Roads may become snowy […]

Warmer Winter Nights -Winter Weather Advisory

We have another snow and ice event moving into the area this morning affecting most of the area.  Travel-related impacts are possible near/south of I-96 during the morning, then temperatures will climb above freezing. Across western/central Lower Michigan, somewhat higher icing amounts are expected, with slippery travel between late morning and evening. Power outages are […]

Winter Weather Advisory – Mixed Bag of Precipitation

We have a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the lower peninsula today for a mixed bag of precipitation.  At this point areas to the north of Grand Rapids will see most of the snow while to the south we will see a mix of snow and sleet.  Precipitation will arrive in Lower Michigan as […]


We have a balmy 10° this morning at 6 am.  I am sure Woody the woodchuck is happily snoozing in its burrow after being rudely disturbed for our entertainment yesterday.  The cold will be noticeable today with highs only topping out in the low to mid-teens. Wind chill values will be driven to below zero […]

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 […]
