Wind Advisory until Midnight

February 10th, 2013 at 2:18 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Local    8 PM – The Wind Advisory has been extended until midnight.  Heavier snow showers should diminish to flurries later this evening.  We’ve added another inch of snow today in Grand Rapids.   Most areas have already seen their fastest wind, however, with gusts of 40-50 mph in most areas.  The wind has caused some drifting snow, esp. on north-south roads and that, plus temperatures dropping below freezing this evening will mean slick spots on the roads this evening and tonight.  The wind calms down a little later tonight.  Looks like a decent cold shot with more significant lake-effect snow this Friday – Sunday AM.  The GFS has high temperatures only in the low-mid 20s for Friday to Sunday.  For current Michigan weather observations and wind speeds, click here. Here’s NAM model snowfall thru 84 hours, the GFS snowfall thru 120 hours and the HPC snowfall predictions. Here’s WOOD-TV Interactive Radar, looping radar.

      WOW!!!…..hope that was fixxxers house.

        :)

    2. DF (SE Mich) says:

      That is amazing!

  3. Barry in Zeeland says:

    Very enjoyable watching the snow once again melt away in the rain! Seems like we have had way more rain than average this year for January and February so far. Anyone know how we stand average wise or record wise for winter rainfall?

  4. INDY says:

    rain is almost done loooks like the cold front will be over by tonight so Monday will be a cold and snowy day we won’t lose a lot of snow with this lgt. rain!!! Stay tune INDYY..

    1. Barry in Zeeland says:

      Check the temps way to our southwest. Warm air way back in Iowa heading this way. Mid and upper 40′s = SNOWMELT!! You should be a little more positive, makes life much more enjoyable!

      1. Jeff (Fremont) says:

        Barry, as you already know, you’re the one who isn’t positive. IT’S WINTER! Deal with it, if you don’t like it move.

        For instance, I grew up in Las Vegas, and spent my time in the Air Force (six years) stationed in Oklahoma, I got sick of the heat in both places, so guess what? I moved to beautiful West Michigan.

        My point is, let the people who enjoy the seasons enjoy the seasons without being a jerk. It’s really not that difficult.

        1. Barry in Zeeland says:

          No need for name calling or acting like your 4 years old. I happen to think this winter has been downright perfect. I deal with a lot of elderly people, which belive it or not most of us will become some day, and not having snow and ice till late in the winter is a blessing for them. Are you just going to tell all of them to move away to so they don’t fall and break their hip on the ice? Very mature of you.

        2. Barry in Zeeland says:

          And how do you find my posts not positive when I almost always use the words enjoyable, awesome, great, etc….? Since when is that negative? Oh well, carry on in your misery, wouldn’t hurt to lighten up though!

        3. INDY says:

          DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! INDYY..

    2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      I 100% agree. Very little snow melt, less rain than all the hype suggested and lower temps. All great news for WINTER lovers!

      1. SW Kent says:

        Rocky, for weeks you stated everyday that this would be the worst winter ever, no snow…..
        Then it started to snow and you said we will have 6 weeks of cold and snow.
        Here are the facts…..Byron Center went from 15 inches on the ground Saturday to 4 inches this am.
        Our cold and snowy pattern is over, although we will have a cold weekend with NW flow for 3 days.

      2. GunLakeDeb says:

        I was pretty happy to have a Dry Slot, to keep the rain to a minimum. It was a nice thaw – got rid of the icicles and snow on the roof; but left a nice base of snow. At 8 AM, the drizzle switched over to sleet; then around 11, the new snow started in earnest. At the rate it’s snowing, we should have a whole new layer for sledding in a few hours?

    3. Yup (Grandville) says:

      Dude, it was 47 degrees when I got up at 5:30 this morning ;)

  5. Travis (Oakland County) says:

    Waiting on the rain here and 36 degrees. If the Detroit meteorlogists are correct, it looks like highs will be above freezing all week.

    This looks to be followed by a short 2-day shot of 20′s, and then back to around average.

    1. michael g (SE GR) says:

      Good ol’ Travis. 8* below normal for the month, 18+” of snow and he makes it sound like global warming is cooking us all.

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        +1000 – very warm weather biased virtually 100% of the time!!!!

        1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

          haha coming from Rocky and Joe B, I’ll take that as a compliment ;) Nothing biased about reading a forecast. Almost all our snowcover already melted here.

      2. INDY says:

        lolololololo!!!! INDYY..

    2. chuckles says:

      This is SW Michigan -but thanks for the Detroit area weather updates. Very useful on this blog.

      1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

        100 miles away… the horror ;) We have people from all over on here. It’s more than just a local blog!

      2. INDY says:

        LOLOLOLOLOLOLO!!! INDYY,,,

  6. KF (SE of Lowell) says:

    Was just out on the gravel roads in Ionia County. Very, very icy. I am thinking school closings or paved roads only for districts out this way tomorrow.

  7. Nathan says:

    Wind advisory for the entire area tomorrow

  8. Zachary Lassiter says:

  9. Rocky (Rockford) says:

    If you like COLD and SNOW then Michigan is the place to be. Starting on Friday we will be seeing a lot of temps in the 20′s with a lot of SNOW! The RDB model is sniffing out a big SNOWSTORM the week of 2-18-13. All of the warm weather nuts may want go hibernate for about 4 more weeks! We are in for wild ride with COLD and SNOW! Bring it on!!!!!!!!

  10. Rocky (Rockford) says:

    >>>>>>>> Weather Bulletin >>>>>>>> Winter is here for another 3 to 4 weeks!! Get used to it!!!!! The groundhog is WRONG again!!!

    1. Blue Moon says:

      get a life

      1. Brian (Grandville) says:

        So he likes winter and snow, as do a lot of people.What’s wrong with that?

        1. TomKap (Michigan St. & Fuller) Grand Rapids says:

          cause it’s monotonous.
          with too many !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Barry in Zeeland says:

    Up to 43 here now. If you step outside you can smell the snow melting! Getting pretty sloppy everywhere now. Can’t wait for the boat show in GR this week, always a great time getting ready for seadoo season! Last year we had it running in March already and used it until October. Not bad getting 8 months of riding in.

  12. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

    2 well below average snowfall months, followed by 2 above average snowfall months. I have snowmobiled 645 miles since last week Friday, and I only snowmobiled 600 miles all last winter! We have a very heavy and deep snow depth as well, it is a very heavy 10-12″ snow pack.

    1. Brian(Grandville) says:

      Excellent! Another 5-6 weeks of winter, and than spring can arrive would be perfect.

      1. fixxxer says:

        uh.. i don’t want 5-6 more weeks of this crap.

        1. GunLakeDeb says:

          I know, Honey – but we snow lovers had to wait about TEN weeks to get our snow. You’ll have to be patient while we enjoy what little we have left of this winter. Because Brian is right – we could have several weeks of snow – then it’s like someone hits the “Spring” switch and the snow leaves and Tulips pop up. If the ground is white – we’re gonna play in it!

        2. fixxxer says:

          umm im not your honey # 1, no offense. #2 you “snow lovers” had your snow. i think were ready for a warm up and maybe some sunshine for a change.

        3. GunLakeDeb says:

          OK – I just thought “Honey” was nicer than “Grumpybutt”. A couple of weeks of snow “doth not a winter make” – we have lots more of it ahead of us. And if you want to sit and wallow in your misery, Mr Grumpybutt – you go right ahead :-) It’s making like a blizzard out there, and *I* am pretty giddy about that!!

  13. Jim S.(Saugatuck Twp) says:

    Just looking at the gfs…yesterday it was showing a solid 3 day lake effect event. Now, it has backed off showing very little lake effect. Also, the 06z shows another east coast bomb this weekend…and another one to follow.

  14. Travis (Oakland County) says:

    Woke up to 44 degrees and heavy rain. Snow here has pretty much all melted already.

    1. DF (SE Mich) says:

      The heavy rain woke me up too. Anywhere the snow had some sort of depth remains intact down here. My front yard still has a couple inches since all the back yard snow drifted to the front =)

  15. Swatz_Zoo(Cedar Springs) says:

    What is the reason for a few schools closed at these temps?

    1. chuckles says:

      Icy side roads would be my best guess.

    2. suehelen says:

      The side roads are treacherous.

  16. DF (SE Mich) says:

    Every school is closed in Washtenaw County today………… imagine if we actually had a winter like West Michigan =)

    1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

      Here too. Rain on top of compacted melting snow on the dirt roads = solid ice. I lived on a dirt road as a kid, and these days were great. Ice skating on the road!

  17. SlimJim NW GR (1) says:

    Just starting to get light snow falling here, the temp is still warm at 35° Also looks like a good 5 to 6 inches of snow survived the warm temps and rain yesterday into last nigh. Should add its also windy here as well.
    Looks like the next few days should be ho hum and then maybe turn colder for next week end. Not sure how much snow GR will get as it could be more of a NW lake effect event this weekend. It still looks like a slow clime into spring but there are some indications that March may be warmer then average BUT of course much colder then last year!!
    SlimJim

    1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

      haha yes, my official March prediction is that it will be significantly cooler than last year ;)

      1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

        Wow. You actually used “cooler” in a sentence.

        1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

          Actually, as I posted a few months ago, I thought we had a good chance at a cooler Jan/Feb… I was sure wrong about January! Unlike some here, I’m not in one crowd 100% of the time.

          I’ve been hoping for snow for a while now, but it’s been a pretty miserable winter over here.

        2. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          I thought the Detroit area was doing alright snow-wise?

        3. Travis (Oakland County) says:

          Detroit is, but that’s not saying too much. Their averages are low, so the one big snow they had that only stuck around for a short bit really boosted them.

          I’m in the northern suburbs where we average a lot more snow. But we’ve only had a handful of days all winter with more than 3″ on the ground. Booooo

  18. INDY says:

    BLIZZARD LIKE CONDITIONS OUT THEE YARDofBRICKS!!!! Fact Still have over 8 inches of snow on thee ground!! INDYY….

  19. BJ says:

    Snowing hard here on NW side of Grand Rapids. The driveway is a sheet of ice. We just had 22 ducks fly into the backyard. They are eating all the bird seed.

  20. Mike in Hamilton says:

    M40 south of Holland is a real mess! If you’re going towards Hamilton or Allegan, (or coming from) be very careful… Icy and poor visibility.

  21. fixxxer says:

    oh l@@k… another crap day to add to the books!

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      Lol…it is another blessed day to be alive. What are some things we can be thankful for?

      1. fixxxer says:

        ill be thankful when it’s july with some 80′s and sunshine.

        1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          Doubt it. Won’t be any thunderstorms… Kids will be sun burnt. Fixxxer’s ankle broken from playing beach volleyball…

      2. GunLakeDeb says:

        I think I’ll be thankful for GLASS. So I can sit here at my desk and watch the blizzard without having to be IN it ;-)

  22. INDY says:

    SNOWING VERRY HARD OUT THEE YARDofBRICKS GOING TO BE A LONG AND LATE WINTER!!! WEST MICHIGAN WILL HAVE SNOW IN APRIL THIS YEAR!! INDYY…

  23. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

    This area is stuck in the dry wedge of death currently…

  24. Jacob G (Kent City) says:

    12Z GFS is showing a lot of opportunities over the next few weeks for some active weather. With MJO entering into a very favorable active southern jet for phases 1-2 and a negative PNA showing up to boot. Let’s say the drought conditions will be easing if we keep this pattern up. Once we get further out it could warm up but then again we could stay stuck in Phases 1 or 2 for a bit longer. Hard to say what March might bring, a lot depends on the next few weeks. It could start out mild and quiet and then end colder and stormier if we follow the MJO. Needless to say we are going to be above average on Feb snowfall and will most likely end the month below average on temps.

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      Yeah, the GFS has a couple snow events next week, with one of them being a monster. Sure wish it would hold true. Yes, fixxxer I already know what you think.

      1. GunLakeDeb says:

        We need nice cold weather for this weekend’s Winterfest. There’s a lone snowmobile trail going out across slushy Gun Lake (wisely following the shoreline) – then it ends about 40′ off the end of the Allegan County Park, where you can see a big rectangle cut in the ice? Probably for the tow truck to get a winch cable on the submerged sled? We NEED good ice!

        1. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

          My dad saw that snowmobile track across the lake when he had to snowmobile to my grandparents house on the south side of Gun Lake on Saturday. We couldn’t believe someone would try to ride across it.

        2. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          Yikes! It will get cold enough after Thursday to freeze the water I’m guessing…not sure how safe it will be, especially if itis snow covered.

  25. Brenda (Otsego) says:

    Heavy horizontal snow sticking to vertical objects.

  26. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

    Welp, Rocky and Swatz, it looks like you guys are getting good snow! The stupid wind is pushing it over the lakeshore again. Sure wish we could get more events that weren’t accompanied by such strong winds.

    Enjoy it, you guys! I know you have been waiting… :)

  27. Vincent(N.E.Kent Co) says:

    My snow has gone from 13 inches down to 4 on the ground. Has been snowing and blowing good here on and off for the last hour. Had a high temp today of 43. Now it’s 34.

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      I was a little shocked at how much snow has been lost, considering the snow was dense, the temps. weren’t warm for long, and the rain wasn’t heavy. Snow sure melts fast in West Michigan compared to east coast snow!

      1. mart (gr) says:

        I am surprised how much snow is left after all that rain

        1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          Oh yeah? We lost a lot of snow around here compared to what we had…I am guessing we have 6 to maybe 8 inches in spots?? Yesterday morning we probably had 12 to 14 inches. We lost like half our snowpack in 12 hours. Southerly winds in Muskegon are a killer.

  28. INDY says:

    NWS out to lunch or on crack like some again no snow Advisory for West Michigan roads are closed full of ice as INDY drinks his sprites just like Emily’s Dress !!! STAY TUNED INDYY..

  29. Ned S. (Now in South Holland) says:

    Driving conditions in the Holland area are poor. Heavy snow at times, with blowing and drifting. Current temp. is 32 degrees. Visibilities 1/4 mile or less at times.

  30. MaryCBWyoming says:

    These are not ‘snow showers’ here in Wyoming. It’s been snowing HARD since around 9am. What’s up with that??????????? No one has said a word…

    1. LisaB says:

      Yes, I’ve also been checking in every hour to see what’s up. It’s been like a blizzard here in NE GR for nearly 5 hours.

  31. Yup (Grandville) says:

    So…. what areas are favorable for LE tonight? And +1 on no advisories here.

  32. SlimJim NW GR (1) says:

    Well it has now stopped snowing. It sure did snow and blow hard for most of the day. And as others have stated there is a good bit of snow and slop on the roads and north/south roads are snow covered in many spots. I just cleared the drive of just over one inch of very heavy wet snow. 32° here and just cloudy here now. And while still windy it less so then earlier.
    SlimJim

  33. INDY says:

    3 BIG snow events up coming artic air Wed. snow storm next Mon. snow storm next Wed. winter keeps rolling!!! Really SW KENT did not lose a lot of snow last night!!INDYY…

    1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      I still have at least 6 to 8 inches of snow in my back yard!

  34. TACO BOY says:

    Fixxxer=Job……Job=Fixxxer…..TACO BOY!

  35. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

    We still have enough snow around our house to snowmobile, and it looked like the snowmobile trail held up well in our area. Maybe we’ll be snowmobiling again by next weekend. On my drive to WMU I started seeing my first grass between Plainwell and D-Ave, and there is a lot more grass showing here in Kalamazoo. Our roads by our house were a mess. The north/south road was drifted over, and it was a heavy slushy mess. Our dirt road was a slushy, snowy, muddy mess as well.

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      Our neighborhood and the back roads are a MESS too. i wonder why the plows didn’t come through while it was slushy?

  36. DF (SE Mich) says:

  37. INDY says:

    DF going to cold rest of the month..U still have any Tornado damange in your hood??? INDYY….

    1. DF (SE Mich) says:

      Most of it is fixed that will be fixed. Quite a few people that were underwater on their mortgages just walked away, those homes are still boarded up, damaged, etc. The tree damage is still there if you know where to look.

      The houses that were leveled are back up much better than they were before =)

      1. INDY says:

        Wow Coming up on a year DF time to start thinking about storms!! INDYY..

      2. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

        Wow. So how does that work? Did they get the money for their homes that they had already paid towards the mortgage?

        1. DF (SE Mich) says:

          Nope, they defaulted and the bank owns them now. Can’t be good for the credit score.

    Are we looking at more lake effect over the weekend? Wow, winter is sure making up for lost time!

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      Yep!!!! So,e synoptic snow on Thursday followed by lake effect through Sunday. Then snow chances through the rest of the month!

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        Yes that just about sums it up! WINTER IS JUST GETTING WARMED UP!!!

        1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          I must say…this winter has improved GREATLY from the first half!

      2. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

        By the way, Lisa….check out the “Hazardous Weather Outlook”. They mention the end of the week. :)

          Thanks for the link! Not much info, but it’s quite a ways out yet, so that’s to be expected. Something to keep an eye on for sure!

  44. Rocky (Rockford) says:

    We received a good 3 inches of SNOW up here today and it is still SNOWING!!!!

    1. arcturus says:

      Wrong. Stop posting misinformation. Whatever stuck may of been 3 *centimeters* tops.

      1. AJ (Cedar Springs) says:

        It is very possible for Rockford to have 3 inches today. Cedar Springs easily received 2-3 inches.

        1. Brent (Cedar Springs) says:

          Rocky and AJ are correct easy 2-3″ today in Cedar Springs.

      2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

  46. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

    I just got home from WMU, and that was by far the worst drive I have had all winter! Kalamazoo was a skating rink even though they only had about a half inch or less of new snow. I drove by the wreck on SB 131 near D-Ave and the traffic was backed up 1.5 miles. When I got just a few miles south of the Martin exit the snow really picked up, and it was hard to see the highway. I saw 3 cars in the ditch just south of Martin. Every road is very icy. We have almost 3″ of fresh snow, and it’s drifting over on the north/south roads. It took me 2 tries to get up our driveway because it was icy. It’s still snowing like crazy!

      It has been snowing like this for a couple hours now!!! I thought we were done for tonite… but man it’s REALLY snowing hard!!!

      D Ave is always bad… hated driving to WMU in the winter…because of that stretch!!!

      1. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

        Yup, it seems like there is always a wreck on/near that hill by D-Ave.

        1. SS (Pwell Area) says:

          Or people who don’t think that area is bad and go too fast!!! Duh… the semi trucks aren’t going that slow because they want to see how slow they can make it up that hill!!! LOL!!!

      Some parts of Allegan County have to average more than Muskegon’s 100 inches a season. You guys always seem to get pounded!

      1. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

        I’m sure places like Allegan, Fennville, and Hamilton average close to or more than Muskegon’s average. Muskegon gets more system snow, but we receive more lake effect. My area always has more snow than places like Plainwell which is 8 miles to our SE, and Wayland which is 9 miles to our NE.

      You forgot to mention hardly anything has accumulated.

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        Ya right fixxxer. I have seen 3.5 inches of SNOW today! Keep it coming! The more COLD and SNOW the better!!!!!

      2. Bill Steffen says:

        GRR had 1.7″ today – that brings the season total for GRR to 44.6″. Muskegon’s season total is now 65.8″ and that’s less than 6″ from average. It’s not impossible that the snow Friday-Sunday AM could get Muskegon back to average.

        1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          Sweet!!!

  48. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

    We’ve had 3″ of fresh snow so far today, and I have a snow depth of 10″.
