Here is one of the reasons I resettled in west Michigan. Having traveled and nested in northern Maine and NE Canada where the temps can be brutal in January and February, SW Michigan can be a kinder gentler place temperature-wise in the winter with the effect of Lake Michigan. We just made it into the single digits with a low of 9.7° overnight. Below are the morning temps:
We will remain cold for today with temps in the teens and tonight we will be back in the single digits. The Canadian air will be shortlived as temps rise once again into the 30s tomorrow into the weekend.
Lake Effect snow showers will continue to impact the region closer to Lake Michigan this morning. Slick travel conditions can be expected there. The snow showers will move inland and diminish throughout the day. Very cold wind chill values will start the day for all areas, so bundle up if you are headed out. Keep track of your dogs when you let them out, especially short-haired breeds. Mine didn’t spend much time out there this morning.
Saturday will bring another chance of snow with another snowmageddon of an inch or so. If we had a snowstorm of a foot or more we would be totally freaked after being inched to death this season.
Happy Valentine’s day!
