Storm Warnings Have Ended

Our three-day total from lake effect snow is 23 inches which is quite impressive, our total for the month is 27 inches all falling last week.  Now we can begin the cleanup phase and happily, we won’t see any more snow falling for the next week.  Yesterday’s high was 25° the low was 18°

While skies will remain mostly cloudy with snow showers continuing, much improved conditions are expected today. Any accumulation will be on the order of an inch or less near and west of Highway 131. There will be some peaks of sunshine at times through the course of the day. Highs will top out in the upper 20s to lower 30s for the most part. West winds of 15 to 25 mph make it feel cold by November standards. Normal highs today should be in the low to mid-40s.


- Lingering light snow showers/flurries gradually ending today -

KGRR radar trends and sfc obs early this morning indicate that
lingering light snow showers continue to gradually diminish.
Very little additional snow accumulation is expected early this
morning in our favored wnw flow snow belt regions near to west of
US-131. Therefore we will go ahead and cancel the winter storm
warning and winter wx advisory headlines. Thanks for the coord on
this decision APX/IWX.

A consensus of latest higher res computer model guidance remains
consistent in showing the lingering light snow showers and
flurries will continue to diminish this morning. This as the
upper trof axis continues to move further east and away from our
region and h8 temps moderate rapidly this morning and afternoon.

- Tranquil weather for most of the upcoming week -

A consensus of latest medium range guidance continues to suggest
tranquil wx returns for most of the upcoming week along with a
gradual moderating trend of temps from early to midweek. A low
pressure system moving in from the west will bring our next chance
for some rain showers or mixed precipitation by Thursday through
Friday. However considerable medium range guidance discrepancies
still exist in terms of evolution of that system which leads to
much lower fcst confidence for the late week time frame and beyond.

Good map. Definitely shows most of the snow skipped right over Ottawa county. I’d guess we had around 6 inches over the 3 days, averaging out to only about 2 inches per day. We’ve had lake events in the past that drop 2 inches an hour for a long time.

Looks like we finally turn above average to end the month and start December. I’d imagine most of the snow will melt besides the piles.

30s and 40s all this coming week, so some should melt.

13 inches total from the whole duration from this event. 15 inches for the month of November here. If I had to guess this would be a new record for this area but of course no way to know given no record are kept here obviously. Looking at the 2014 accumulation map we would have likely exceeded 2014 here. To get 13 inches of lake effect this far inland is pretty hard to do takes a certain setup like we just had.

Winter has started off with a bang. If I had to guess, I’d say we received 6-8 over the entire event. Most of it melted day one. Late yesterday, we received close to 2. We have an inch on the driveway and 2-3 on the grassy surfaces. I believe this will be remembered for the overall duration of the event. It’s not too often when you have warnings/advisories for multiple consecutive days. A couple of areas in Michigan rec’d 20 or so inches, but people will remember this event mostly for western NY and their six plus feet of snow.

Yesterday Barry was wondering if there were any other reports for snow at the lake shore area other than Muskegon. Well not any official reports but there are a few CoCoRahs reports. For Holland station OW-49 4.0” OW-2 7.5”. OW-20 2.3”. The report for Grand Haven did not have a snow depth. So yes near the lake there is much less snow on the ground.

There has been much more snow fall at Grand Rapids than at Muskegon and Lansing. Yesterday at Lansing there was 4.9” of snow fall that is just below the record of 5.0” in 1895. And there is 5” on the ground there. At Muskegon just 0.2” of snow fall was reported and there is just 3” on the ground there.
