You have to click the pic to enlarge. It’s a picture sent to me by LeAnne DeGlow. The sun is making the shape of a heart thru the trees. I thought it kind of fit Valentine’s Day. This will be a dry day with a little sunshine and temperatures up to the upper 30s (low 40s in areas south and southeast without snow on the ground). Winds will be SW 5-15. Tomorrow will be breezy with a chance of a light mix. High temps. again in the upper 30s to near 40 occur in the early afternoon with falling temps. in the late PM. Snow showers are likely from Thurs. night to Saturday with most areas seeing just light accumulations of an inch or two. A little more snow is likely in those areas favored with a NW wind. One model prints out around 4″ in the snow areas of Allegan Co. It’ll be cool, we may not get out of the low 20s on Sat. Monday won’t be quite as cool, but another shot of cold air arrives with some snow Monday night/Tues. We drop to -21.2C at 850mb (not quite a mile above ground), so it’s a pretty good shot of cold air and that will likely keep lake-effect snow showers going Tues. and Weds. Thru. 2/12, G.R. is 4 deg. cooler than avg. for Feb. Here’s NAM model snowfall and GFS forecast snowfall.
