I’ll leave radar at the top of the blog for any last showers/drizzle. 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. Check out regional radar, GRR radar, northern Indiana radar, Chicago radar and Milwaukee radar. Here’s the College of DuPage Radar Map, the local warning/advisory map and the National warning/watch/advisory map. You can checkout the latest Grand Rapids NWS discussion, the Northern Indiana NWS discussion (includes the Michigan Counties that border Indiana), the discussion for Northern Lower Michigan, and Eastern Lower Michigan. Here’s the Spyglass Condos Weather Station the S. Haven GLERL station, the Muskegon GLERL station, the Grand Haven Steelheaders webcam and weather station, and the weather station at Holland State Park. Check out the WOOD lightning tracker and U.S. lightning, the Maranatha Webcam at Lake Michigan and links to webcams. Here’s the infrared satellite loop (night) and the visible satellite loop (daytime), Lake Michigan water temperatures. Here’s storm total precipitation for W. Michigan.
After today (Mon.), it looks like a cool week. The models give us 1/2 to 1.5″ of snow this week (4″ in the higher elevations between Cadillac and Trav. City). All the models have us only in the low 30s on Weds. We may get back to the low- maybe-mid 40s around Fri./Sat. Thurs. is the best bet for a dry day. Also, 1.39″ of rain in Honolulu with 2.54″ at Kolaeloa. 2.1″ of rain in S. Williamsburg IA and 1.7″ in Henry, IL. Snowfall: 26″ Wolf Creek Pass CO, 11″ Grant NE, 10″ Manning IA, 9″ Burroughs KS, 8″ Kenwood MN, 5.4″ Denver. Here’s a view of Comet Pan-Starrs seen at sunset from the Canary Is. Heres’ more on the comet. Unfortunately, we’ve had clouds to dim our view of the night sky. Here’s a sky map looking west of where the comet will be in our evening sky on March 12 and March 13. Binoculars or a telescope will help.
