Winter Storm Watch – for 6″ or more of new snow!January 23rd, 2014 at 1:52 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, News, Weather
A Winter Storm Watch (which will eventually become at least a Winter Storm Warning) has been issued for OTTAWA-ALLEGAN-VAN BUREN, MASON-LAKE-OSCEOLA-OCEANA-NEWAYGO-MECOSTA-MUSKEGON-MONTCALM-KENT, IONIA, BARRY- and KALAMAZOO Counties from Fri. AM thru Sat. AM for 6″ or more new snow, plus considerable blowing and drifting snow, greatly reducing visibilities and causing significant travel concerns. An eventual Blizzard Warning is not impossible with this event. The entire area will be under a Wind Chill Advisory from 10 PM tonight thru at least 1 PM tomorrow. Watch Kyle and I with team coverage on tonight’s 5 PM news.
Look at how cold the GFS is for next Tues. AM (-20 to -25 in Chicago and Milwaukee!!).
