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 that great rock and roll place in heaven this month. Growing up with all these folks makes me feel old and uneasy about my mortality.
We have some snow falling this morning. We are not expecting much in the way of accumulation, less than an inch in most areas.

- Lingering Precip Into Afternoon While we may see a brief lull in precipitation coverage early this morning, another shortwave will drop south near 12z resulting in an uptick through this afternoon. Cold advection with the shortwave will support a transition to snow with lake enhancement expected to keep the precipitation orientated along and west of US-131. Generally around a dusting of snow is expected, and with mild temps, impacts are expected to be limited. Dry weather will settle back in late this afternoon and evening. - Widespread Light Snow Sunday Dry weather lasts through Saturday as high pressure moves into the region. Chances for widespread light snow increase early Sunday morning as a system passes by to our southeast. The bulk of the moisture with this system will stay focused southeast of the state, but a band of mid-level deformation over the Great Lakes will bring widespread light snow for our area with minor accumulations of an inch or two possible. Snow showers should diminish in coverage by Sunday evening as the low to our southeast moves further away. - Snow Chances Again Wednesday High pressure moves back into the region leading to dry weather Monday and Tuesday. By Wednesday the potential increases for a stronger storm system to move through the region. As usual for forecast models this far out, there remains uncertainty on the overall storm evolution, including the strength and main track of the storm. For instance, the GFS continues to portray a stronger and wetter system that tracks through southeast lower MI, while the Euro is slightly weaker and drier with a track slightly more to the southeast. Looking at ensemble output, there is a decent amount of spread on snowfall amounts for both the Euro and the GFS ensembles with amounts ranging from trace up to 8 inches. Acknowledging those sizable discrepancies, we`ll need some time to work out the details of this system.
