Snow EndsJanuary 23rd, 2013 at 4:33 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Lake-Effect Snow Warning overnight for Berrien, LaPorte and St. Joseph (Indiana) Counties for up to 1/2-foot of snow. At this hour, the snow has ended east of US 131 and is moving offshore and down into Berrien Co. and N. Indiana. Roads in many areas are snow-covered and slippery this Thursday AM. It’s cold with nice crunchy snow. Up to 23″ of snow has fallen in Allegan Co. in the last four days with drifts as high as 2-3 feet. Very little snow fell northeast of Grand Rapids. We’ll get a break from the snow on today (Thurs.) with a little sunshine, before another system (not lake-effect) gives us another 1-4″ of snow on Friday, when the heaviest accumulations could be from Muskegon north to Manistee. We may warm briefly to 40 about next Tues. night, before turning colder again. There is a chance of mixed precipitation early next week, which could be partly rain or freezing rain. The GFS has some cold and snow to close out the month. For current Michigan weather observations and wind speeds, click here.
