Winter Continues – Winter Weather Advisory

We thought it was going to happen late winter, or some did anyway predicting a back-loaded winter like last year (good job Slim).  We will probably see more snow this month than we did all winter in SW Michigan.  We have had 6.7 inches in Otsego this month and with today’s totals, we could break last month’s snowfall amount of eight inches and Decembers amount of 10.5.

We have a winter weather advisory in place which starts at noon today lasting through midnight for three to five inches of snow with isolated higher amounts.  The highest amounts will be north of Grand Rapids while south drizzle may mix in.

 


We have another chance of snow late Wednesday into Thursday then a brief shot of cold air from our friends in the frozen north country.

Temps still climbing, up to 37 now and still a light rain/mist. Funny every time we get a little snow it immediately starts melting away.

18 is certainly not that cold for mid February. This is the time of year we are often around or below zero.

That’s what I thought. If you’re going to have temps in the teens the most likely months to have that would be January or February. If it was May or June that would be shocking.

Officially GR has picked up 3.1 inches and counting! GR is well over 40 inches of snow and going up fast! Might be over 50 inches by the end of the week! Incredible!

Well snow is done here, so I fired up the snowblower just to use up some of the gas I’ve had sitting around, about 1.5 to 2 inches on the driveway. Not enough for the blower, but had to run the engine some. Any normal Winter this would amount to squat for mid February, but this year since we are counting tenths at a time, a whopping 15 to 20 tenths today!! Current temp is 34 and the melting has begun again.

I just took a spin outside and we have picked more snow than I thought! Great call by the NWS – the roads are a mess, closing all over the place and this is despite all the warm weather fanatics complaining about the the WWA! Incredible!

Well…not a lot of “fuel” left for heavy snow. Thankfully, not a major impact for W. MI.

Short winter continues!!! Check out the 8-14 day CPC Map!! That will have Rocky seeing red!!! Love these short snowless winters!! Even after the couple of inches we get today, we’ll still be around a foot and a half below normal for snowfall and February will just be another in a long line of above normal temp months! So awesome that we transitioned from a nice string of cooler than normal months from summer through fall, right to well above normal temps all the way through winter!! Who knew?!?!! Keep it ROCKIN!!

Breaking weather alert>>>>>>this storm may end up as a bust for GR! Most of the snow will be tracking North of GR and then the dry slot will hit sooner than expected! So don’t be surprised if GR only sees around an inch of snow! The counties to the Northwest may actually see a good storm, 4 to 6 inches up by Cadillac/TC! Snow country baby!
