Warnings expire at 7 PM

November 30th, 2008 at 8:59 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather
Local The Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories will expire at 7 PM Monday for all of West Michigan.   I’m off to speak to the Ottawa Co. Townships Annual Dinner at the Pinnacle Center this evening.  Snow showers will diminish to flurries, with flurries continuing tomorrow.  A stronger Arctic cold front approaches on Wednesday with more snow or a brief mix changing to snow.  Then VERY COLD air arrives (850 mb temperature to -16C Friday AM)…so lake-effect snow is likely.  Saturday we get a clipper system and at least light snow.  Sunday even COLDER air arrives (-18C – (or 0F) at 850 mb Sunday AM), with more lake-effect.  More snow and colder than average for next week  Keep the winter coats and snow shovels handy!!  Click here to see advisories/watches/warnings for neighboring states.  Oh, and read the posts below and above…this is going to be a wild week of weather!

  2. Barbara in Kazoo (S. 6th & N Ave. (west central Kalamazoo Co.) says:

    So how did Brennan do with all his school closing predictions?

  3. Mike Menconloy says:

    Brennan did wonderful!

  4. Craig (Holly St Park area) says:

    The NWS/Gaylord does these morning – kind of a recap of the weather over the past 24 hours in their region.

    Sure would like to see GR and DET offices do something similar! Hint hint.

  5. pete from byron center says:

    i have 6.5 inches of heavy snow.

  6. Tanya Mack-Big Rapids/Morley-Stanwood says:

    Boy I hope all the bickering in here doesn’t continue all winter! Couldn’t help but laugh at all the people claiming the storm was hyped…I measured 8 1/4″ here….heavy wet stuff-great for making snowmen! Still flurries off and on but doesn’t appear to be amounting to much from where the parking lot was plowed this morning. Kids are happy to have a snow day-they already had a 5 day wknd for the holiday so now it’s 6. Not sure what to think about the snow for later in the week-we don’t usually get much LES but I hear we may this time. Anyone have any idea if Mecosta County has a chance for any? Just curious.

    Hope all here are safe (and warm!) =)

  7. Bob P. :o) (St.Johns) says:

    6.5 measured on a elevated surface……5″ on the warm ground, 33*

  8. Vincent(N.E.Kent Co.) says:

    My snow measure stick i pounded into the yard Sunday at noon now says 10 inches of new snow here. Gotta go out and plow driveway again.I dont like it. Its real pretty,but i dont like it. Have a good day.

  9. Scott in Hartford (Western Van Buren Co.) says:

    We had about 3 inches yesterday and last night another 1″ this morning, now it is letting loose with the lake effect. From looking at the current radar I am in the middle of the green :) .

  10. 5.5″ here at my place. What a storm! Still some flurries but no additional accumulations..yet..

    I was looking at that LES band there and that will definitely up the totals of some folks. This storm isn’t quite over yet for some.

  11. Dale P says:

    snowing very hard in Paw Paw right now, rates I believe over an inch/hour. Wonder how long this band will stay over us? Maybe rest of day if I am lucky. What are the teams thoughts of LE potential this weekend? Looks like a prime set up for what could be a very heavy LE event for WNW flow areas.

  12. Click my name to go to my blog ans see some of my photos gang. More coming later today.

  13. Dan (Belmont) says:

    SO Bill whats going to happen with the LES this week, like the amounts, and the wind direction, will I get a lot of LES this week?

  14. Andy says:

    Worked from 10 last night until about 5:30 this morning plowing a facility in Greenville. I’m pretty sure I saw lightning a few miles off to the north around 2 am. A couple of occurrences. Anyone else observe this?

  15. Trent says:

    Yeah, as of 7 o’clock this morning I had 6 and a half inches of snow in my yard and I live in Wayland. Also, I hear we may have a big blizzard coming, any truth to this?

  16. Steelie says:

    Good Day,

    East Paris between 29th and 32nd – 4.5″ on the ground.


  17. Craig (Holly St Park area) says:

    5.5 inches over on this side of the state. Thank god for synoptic snows. Have fun with all your LES, west siders!!!

  18. 5.8″ now with this recent LES band over my area….

  19. Joe (8 Miles E of Rockford) says:
