Dense Fog Advisory for the entire area

December 2nd, 2012 at 6:53 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

   Look for areas of dense fog this early morning.  We have a Dense Fog Advisory for the entire  area.  Winds will be nearly calm until around daybreak.  The fog will persist until around sunrise, when the wind will start to come up and the fog will gradually thin out.  One more unseasonably warm day for today with temperatures into the low 60s.  Showers are possible Monday PM and very likely Monday night.  There’s an outside chance of a thundershower.  Cooler temperatures will follow for Tuesday and especially for Wednesday.  Temperatures will still be a little warmer than average from Tues. to Sat.          Also:  GFS model says cold with a chance of snow after Dec. 10th.

        1. Irish coffee says:

          Atta girl Katie….we’ll have NO , as in ’0′ problem making 60 today!…time to work on my ode/ limmerick to John Dee’s melting snowpack–should be M.I.A gone by midnight; thus allowing me to keep $100 bill and skip road trip to Keweenaw!

  12. OWK says:

    Fog seems to be the extent of weather events we have gotten the past three years. It seems like all the storms go north of GR. I remember we had that wind storm a few Septembers ago and a snow storm a few winters ago.

    So whats going on? Why don’t we get any storms in Spring/summer/winter anymore?

  13. fixxxer says:

  15. Marti B (Grandville area) says:

    I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this, Bill as the link was on the main woodtv page…….I wonder what you would do if that happened during one of your forecasts! ;) I love it! I’m hoping to get a kitty or 2 in the future when I live elsewhere that allows cats….

    I love being in fog, other than the traffic difficulties…

    Good Day,

    Well… it is not as bad now as it was last night. I can now see past my back yard and upwards of 200 yards.


  20. OK, this is NOT a weather related question…but I did not see reported anywhere on WOOD about the Arab man arrested for a bombing in Casa Grande, Arizona. Is Wood also a state controlled media site? Seems like that would be news we would want to know about. Here is a place to check it out… “Homeland Security News

    We flew home that night, we were told we might have to divert to Detroit until the next day, but there was a small window of opportunity to land and our pilot went for it. Another plane came right behind us and also managed to land. We looked at the flight board and seen just how lucky we were. There were multiple flights that were highlighted in red that said cancelled. There were 2 more flights scheduled to land after us but the fog came back and they had to divert to Detroit.

    Here’s what I gave to the G.R. Press: I said 67″ for Grand Rapids for the winter and we’re at 65.3″ so far.
