Good Evening, by press time we have enjoyed a day full of warmth, topping at 31°F around 3 pm. Another warm day is in store, tomorrow, bringing temperatures near, if not a bit over 40°. However, as we know in Michigan, you cant have warmth without rain.
After tomorrow, we hit hump day, and that’s when we slide off the back of that hump. Wednesday is forecast to be a high of 29° with snow. But not just any snow, a snowstorm. The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Watches for our area, and Winter Storm Warnings for areas near the IN border.
I have heard many people saying that if it shifts north, we could see it rival the blizzard of 1978, in terms of how much snow falls, and in how many days. We do have to watch for any shifts though, which I will post a Tuesday night update.
As far as totals go, here is my consensus:
For locations along and south of a line from Standish, to Mt. Pleasant, you are in a 3-4″ range.
For locations along and south of a line from just south of Pinconning to Howard City, you are in a 4-6″ range.
For locations along and south of a line from Port Hope to Grand Rapids, you are in a 6-12″ range.
For locations along and south of a line following the I-69 corridor to Kalamazoo, down to the Ohio Border, you are in a 12-15″ range.
