The snow flurries/snow showers should increase as we approach daybreak. The air a mile above ground is even colder today than it was on Tues. In fact, the overnight run of the European model doesn’t take the temperature at 850 mb (just shy of a mile above ground) above 20F degrees in the next week! The Euro. gives G.R. .03″ precipitation today (half an inch of snow), .02″ on Thu., .02″ next Monday and .02″ next Tue. and that would all be snow. The GFS caribou gives G.R. 9.9″ of snow next Sun. to Mon.! Here’s the 120-hr. GFS showing a snow maximum in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties. The European keeps most of the snow south in Indiana and Illinois and I’ll stick with that for now. For current Michigan weather observations and wind speeds, click here.
