  1. temp rising here. Got down to 48.1 and up at 51.4. Southerly winds have really picked up, I assume the warm front is north of here now. Interestingly it looks like it has stalled to my easy some over by ann arbor
  2. I recently moved into an apartment in downtown lansing, mi. I had always set up my weather station to guidelines for temperature (2m height) however the property manager said I could put it oon the top of the building. My apartment building is ~160 feet tall and it's now installed up here, I was wondering how much different my readings will be this high up and if I should spend the money to get the davis anemometer separated from the ISS suite. It would also raise concerns about people messing with my station too if I went back to a 2m height. However the wind readings I get is pretty freaking awesome!!
  3. This was a sweet air mass. We had thunderstorms earlier (even dime sized hail a few miles away) with a high of 46 and now its sub freezing with mixed precip incoming. I really enjoy volatility.
  4. I hope that precip makes it to my house...We finally dropped below freezing. 30.4 and dropping.
  5. All rain here :/ we had a bit of snow for a few minutes during some impressive radar returns. Bummer. 0.11" of rain so far
  6. Definitely SN/SN+ here now. Just ripping tiny flakes. Not really accumulating fast and the back end is blasting through SWMI..I don't think we will end up with more than maybe 2"...
  7. Wow, 0.00" here pavement wasn't even fully damp. Like a half mile to my north got 1.5 inches and south got crushed. Epic screw hole over MBY. Oh well, had a nice show.
  8. Yeah, that does make sense. I agree it was risky.
  9. Not sure on that, but they issued the watch ~60 hrs before the event so it's not too bad, earlier than normal but this could be a sneaky event for people.
  10. Wow. You guys are way too quick to judge holy crap. Why all the hate with GRR? The point of a watch isto get the word out on possible inclement weather. They had good reasoning for putting it out and last nights AFD by DTX said they were going to put one out for their Monday Afternoon Package. Point is there is a real chance at some bad weather, people need to know about it. Especially since tomorrow is going to be 60. Might it not happen well duh, thats why it's a watch and not a warning.
  11. Lol not really sure what you have to complain about
  12. 9.25" here so far, hopefully we can get that last .75"!
  13. This thing is looking pretty good for much of Lower Michigan, so you think the advisory GRR has out for 3-5"is too low?
  14. I'm not on any mountains here, and I havent hit freezing yet. I do see your point though,I just don't know how much it helped today.
  15. Man,I'm starting to get worried I'm a bit too far east now haha. Luckily the trend has been colder as well as NW. Safely below freezing right now, with an earlier starting time I don't see it getting up to 36 as forecasted.
