Saturday Night Snow

February 16th, 2013 at 2:25 am by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Local  1:32 AM – Four dead in a 3-car accident south of Hartford in Van Buren Co.  Injuries in that accident, too.   Snow showers have moved offshore of most of our area at this hour.  The band comes onshore near S. Haven and moves inland thru Van Buren and Berrien Counties down into Indiana.     Muskegon has picked up  2.6″ Saturday (season total for MKG up to 69.9″, now just 5″ behind average).  Grand Rapids Ford Airport reported 0.2″.   Other snow totals: 16″ 3 miles north of Hart (18″ on the ground),  12.3″ Hart, 11.5″ Shelby (15″ on the ground), 11″ Pentwater, 9″ near Holland (13″ on the ground), 5″ Paw Paw.  I drove thru a heavy snow shower downtown around 2:35 this PM.   Alba in Antrim Co. reports 4″ of new snow and 26″ on the ground.  Honor in Benzie Co. has 8″ of new snow and 22″ on the ground.

    Anyone ( Cort, Matt..) know when it’s supposed to stop?? I do not feel like getting trapped at work. I leave 11pm. Thanks..;)

    1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

      Hey Michelle,

      It is pretty much done. You should get home fine. Just watch for ice, as it snowed heavily out there today!

    1. Rob(norton shores) says:

      Spring can wait its winter just enjoy it. It gives me a break from farming 12 to 14 hours per day gets old with the heat of summer.

      1. fixxxer says:

        Sorry rob but most of us are ready for warmer weather, sun and “hopefully” a few severe tstorms. You guys had your winter. Now its our turn for fun. ;)

        1. Matt (Spring Lake) says:

          Not true. There are lots of people on here who still want winter. It is only mid February. You may not see spring til late April….

        2. Jerry hoag says:

          Yes we want severe thunderstorms already!!! Can’t wait for then… bring them on.

        3. fixxxer says:

          Your right matt we “may” not but hopefully we see it next month. For us winter haters it has sucked this year. I just hope we dont have too cool of a spring & summer.

        4. Cort S. says:

          Didn’t winter just start in mid-January?

        5. Todd In Nunica says:

          We have had ONE month of winter. sheesh I remember the years thinking (in May) that we just had 6-7 months with snow.

  9. Michelle( spring lake) says:

    Anyone know when it is supposed to let up? Don’t really want to get snowed in at work!

  10. Rob(norton shores) says:

    If you don’t like four seasons the move to Florida or southern California.

    1. michael g (SE GR) says:

      Fix doesn’t like anything, and there is no place to move to fix that.

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

      Depends… Meteorological Spring begins March 1st… hehe.

      Steelie

    2. Here’s what NWS says about “Thursday nights Blizzard”-

      THE NEXT SYSTEM IN LINE IS ENERGY THAT IS CURRENTLY WELL NORTH IN
      THE MIDDLE OF THE PACIFIC. THIS IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH THE AREA
      LATE ON THU. THE MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW THE SYSTEM OCCLUDING WITH A
      GOOD PORTION OF THE ENERGY AND MOISTURE STAYING SOUTH OF THE CWFA.
      THIS WILL SETUP THE AREA TO SEE THE OCCLUDED FRONT MOVE IN AND BRING
      A BURST OF MAINLY SNOW TO THE AREA THU NIGHT/FRI AS THE FRONT IS
      BECOMING SHEARED. MODELS HAVE BEEN FAIRLY CONSISTENT IN SHOWING
      POTENTIAL FOR A FEW INCHES OF SNOW…BUT NOT MAJOR ACCUMULATIONS FOR
      NOW.

      1. Bnoppe(Albion) says:
