Buryin’ Berrien – Again

November 25th, 2013 at 9:02 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

advisory   NWS Snow Map Berrien  A Lake-Effect Snow Watch is in effect for Berrien Co. Michigan and La Porte, St. Joseph, Starke, Pulaski, Marshall and Fulton Counties in Indiana from late Tuesday night (after midnight) through Weds. evening.  The heaviest snow band could conceivably produce a foot of snow and greatly impact driving along the lakeshore and esp. the big expressways going to Chicago (I-94, I-80, I-90).  Snowfall rates of 1-2″ per hour are possible in the Watch area.   Notice how the band also impacts W. Van Buren Co. and it’s very close to shore by Holland Grand Haven and Muskegon…coming back over W. Oceana and W. Mason Counties.   So travel on US 31 along the lakeshore and I-196 west of Zeeland may also experience a period of heavy snow.  Occasional periods of flurries and occasional periods of sunshine are likely inland with temperatures much of the day only in the upper 20s.  A stiff wind will cause driving snow and reduce wind chill factors well down into the teens.  We’ll update the forecast at 10 pm and 11 pm.  Graphics courtesy of the National Weather Service.

    Sounds good to me!! Don’t mind the cold at all, and love it when the snow is falling anywhere else but here! Hopefully this will continue to be the trend for the whole winter.

    My family is headed to Missouri…leaving at midnight..and the usual trek is along 94 to 80/90. Dangerous! I really don’t want to deal with that!
