Showers Monday Night

December 3rd, 2012 at 3:59 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Local  We’ve had some pockets of drizzle and some roads are damp.  There are showers in Wisconsin that will move into West Michigan after 10 PM and I expect more showers (and maybe a thundershower or two) to develop out ahead of that area of rain.  SPC has W. Michigan in the General Thunderstorm Outlook and there is a “See Text” for N. Illinois.   SPC says:  “A FEW STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE THIS EVENING FROM PORTIONS OF EASTERN OK/NORTHWEST AR…ACROSS THE MID MS VALLEY…INTO SOUTHEAST WI AND WESTERN LOWER MI. LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS AND/OR A BRIEF TORNADO ARE POSSIBLE…BUT WEAK INSTABILITY AND POOR LAPSE RATES WILL LIMIT THE OVERALL SEVERE THREAT.”   The temperature reached 63 here and 70 in Chicago.  Here’s WOOD-TV Interactive Radar, looping radar.

    Still only 56° in Detroit, I can only assume that is about it since it is getting dark fast.

        Did the fog clear up there? The drizzle really picked up here the second half of the day.

    Looks like most of the snow in the UP is now gone
