We have a bit of a break from the snow, but there is more coming. Grand Rapids added 0,7″ last night, pushing the season snowfall total to 108.5″. Muskegon had 1.8″ of new snow last night and they are up to 125.4″ for the season. Lansing added just 0.2″ and Lansing is up to 58.2″ for the winter. The snow will taper off early Sunday and we may see a little sun in the afternoon north of I-94. Monday to Wednesday look chilly, mainly in the teens with a couple nights dipping below zero in many places. We may see some light snow on Tuesday, an inch or two. We warm up closer to average later this week, along with a chance of a little snow or a light mix. The pattern stays cooler than average into mid-March. There won’t be a lot of melting snow during the first two weeks of March. Melting picks up the last 10 days of the month…hopefully, we won’t get a deluge along with the melting snow…don’t need that. The flood potential will remain high for April – until the ground thaws out and drys enough to hold a good rain.
