Wednesday SnowfallDecember 11th, 2013 at 2:46 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
12:30 PM – The lakeshore counties north of Grand Haven are now out of the Advisory. The convergence band of snow which is now from Berrien Co. to south of Lansing will continue to move southeast, leaving northwest flow lake-effect snow showers south of a line from Muskegon to south Kent Co. southward. At noon, it’s 18 deg. in G.R., but just 12 in Ludington and 4 in Green Bay, Wisconsin – so the WNW wind will continue to bring in very cold Arctic air. Also, morning run of the GFS model shows a VERY cold pattern continuing. Look at Christmas Day!
Also, snow on the bombed out ruins in Syria. Snow in Istanbul, Turkey. -29 this AM in Park Rapids MN. New snow: 12″ Nawakwa Lake in the U.P. 8″ Deer Park and Wetmore, 11.5″ Chassell, 10″ Lucas (Missaukee Co.). Here’s Lowville NY (should be Snowville).
