Winter Weather Advisory ends at 1 PMFebruary 21st, 2013 at 4:07 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The Winter Weather Advisory for the entire area will expire at 1 PM. We’ll still see periods of light flurries and freezing drizzle this afternoon. Light snow tonight and tomorrow will accumulate another 1-3″. We get a break Sunday PM into Monday. The next storm on Tuesday is significant. It looks like rain changing to snow. If mostly snow, at least several inches accumulation will be likely with snow showers continuing into at least Thursday. Temperatures won’t be too far from average as we’re not really tapping Arctic air. Stay up with the blog and on WOOD-TV for updates this coming week. A special “hi” to everyone who was at the Kent-Ottawa Skywarn meeting tonight and congratulations to our WOOD raffle winners. One fatality today from a severe storm in E. Texas. There were 2 tornadoes and more than a dozen reports of wind damage and hail.
Season snowfall up to 9 AM: Grand Rapids – 1.4″ today, 23.7″ for the month, 48.2″ for the season. That’s still 13.8″ below average to this point and 7″ ahead of last year to this point. Muskegon had 2.7″ new up to 9 AM. They are at 41.8″ for February and 81.4″ for the season. That’s 2.3″ above average to this point in the winter and 36.8″ ahead of last winter to this point. Kalamazoo had 2.5″ as of 9 AM with 26.5″ for February and 52.6″ for the season, about 9″ below average for the season so far. I’m just going thru the model data now and I’ll try and update before I head into work. The GFS has the warm air making a run at Michigan on 3/10 along with the possibility of thunderstorms.
