Temps. warm, but only a littleFebruary 16th, 2014 at 1:15 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click on the image to enlarge. This is the 120-GFS model for next Thurs. evening. Instead of the low pressure center going west of us, it comes right over us. That means we won’t get as warm as we earlier thought and the “warm” air won’t last as long. In the meantime, a dusting to an inch and a half of snow to brush off this Sun. AM – another 3-5″ on Monday, dry for most of Tues. – Weds. and maybe 1/2″ of cold rain for Thurs. PM/night. The European takes our temperatures to the low-mid 30s on Tue., upper 30s Weds., low 40s in the rain on Thurs. (mid 40′s Coldwater to mid 30s Ludington), mid-upper 30s Friday, low-mid 30s Saturday…we’ll melt some snow. Be wary of the potential for more roof collapses if the rain on Thurs. can’t drain off flat or low-pitched roofs. In the long term, the pattern goes back to colder than average for late Feb. into early March.
