Lake-Effect Snow Advisory to be Dropped

February 4th, 2013 at 8:38 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

  2:30 PM The Lake-Effect Snow Advisory will be dropped soon, as the snow has shifted out of the Advisory area.  A band of snow will continue moving across the area from NW to SE and will likely drop an inch or inch and a half.  Roads will have slick spots.  The Thursday system could bring significant snow to the area, esp. north of I-96 and I’ll update on that this evening (The European would have a solid 5-10+” of snow from Kent Co. north and even 3-5″ for the I-94 corridor.  A clipper system will move across Lower Michigan, dropping anywhere from 1-4″ of snow (lowest totals SW corner of the state).  The wind will gradually shift from south to west and there will be some lake enhancement in the counties under the advisory, where up to 6″ will fall.  Roads will become snow covered and slippery.  You may be able to run errands in the early morning before the roads get too slick.  After a break (with some sun) on Wednesday, the next system moves in on Thursday.  This will perhaps be a 2-4″, isolated 6″ event with the heaviest snow north of G.R.  This will be a decent couple of inches plus for areas like Big Rapids and Mt. Pleasant that have not had much snow this winter.   The system on Sunday has been advertised to be mostly rain, though I can’t rule out a mix with the chance of a period of freezing rain.   It turns cooler after that.  Lots to do at work today, so I’ll add more after the 11 PM news.

    Still predicting a major meltdown this weekend with rain.

    I don’t care what anyone says on here but winter has been a joke here in Mt.Pleasant for the last several years. Ya we’ve been cold but where the heck is the snowstorms, its just a joke thats for sure. I’m seeing more pacific air coming into the pattern and now the arctic air is now leaving. Its going to be mid February soon so I’m kinda writing this winter off this year. You guys enjoy your lake effect at least your lucky.

      Not even close to the winter we were waiting for fix. Most of us ‘winter nuts’ not only love snow, but we love what it can do for our economy. Lots of snow brings lots of skiers and snowmobiles to Michigan! That’s good for our state, and if you don’t get that, then it looks looks bad on you. Yep, also hoping that you ‘severe storm lovers’ get your fix this spring. Although I’ll NEVER understand hoping for a lighting strike.
