Thanksgiving PM SnowNovember 28th, 2013 at 12:38 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
8:50PM – Still some flurries out there. I measured 2.2″ new at my house with a touch shy of 4″ on the ground (southern Alpine Twp.). It’s light and fluffy and will settle some. The surface map shows good surface convergence of air over West Michigan right were the flurries are still falling. That’s helping to lift the air. . Check out the webcam at Spring Lake.
