Monday PM – The Week AheadFebruary 13th, 2012 at 3:41 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Picture is the moon setting by the Big Red Lighthouse in Holland – from Beach Bum Joe on ReportIt. Clouds have pushed in and we’ll pick up a little light snow tonight and tomorrow…maybe 1-2″. A stronger storm heads for Michigan Weds. night into Thursday. The GFS is pretty wet and warm enough that much of the precipitation (up to an inch) would be a cold rain with snow at the end, a half inch to 2″ maybe. The FIM would have a mix with more rain SSE and more snow NNW from that system, then flurries on the 19th and some snow on the 21st. The European would be about an inch of snow Monday night/Tues. AM with 0.48″ precipitation from the Weds. Night/Thurs. storm system with more rain than snow. Several inches of snow may fall mainly NNW of G.R. A slight change in the path of the storm could bring more snow or more rain. Rush hours Tues. AM and Thurs. AM could be wet to slippery. We’re getting precipitation, but more of it is rain and less is snow. The Thursday storm would be in a good spot to give us a good 6″+ dump of snow if it would be cold enough. Enjoy the sun early today, we won’t see a lot of sun the rest of the work week. Finally, check out the new NASA videos. The third one down has a nice shot of Michigan.
