Seems the southern CONUS has seen more snow than Michigan this winter. Winter storm warnings are in place for Texas and northern Louisiana. Some areas in north-central Texas could see up to six inches of snow today which for them would put a halt to travel due to the fact they don’t keep the snow removal equipment in stock as we do in the northern climes.
The blocking pattern we have had around the past week has caused all the storm systems to pass well to the south of the northern plains to the northeast. High pressure has brought us our stagnant weather pattern however on the plus side we did get some sun shining brightly overhead Friday and Saturday as the high passed overhead.
The clouds will return today thanks mainly to the big lake with a few snow showers teasing us throughout the day. We will be stuck under the clouds the rest of the week more often than not and temps will hover around freezing until we reach midweek.
I am still not overly excited with the expected cooling temps towards the end of the week as this isn’t a true Arctic event threatening the Great Lakes. I do suspect this may return us to a more ‘normal’ winter pattern. I don’t see us catching up or making up for snow lost the first half of winter.
