  1. I'm not very weather savvy, so excuse my potential dumb question. I've been watching the temperature maps for past week or so, the GFS and NAM. Why is it that there is so much warm air through the plains, but it seems like there is a wall around the great lakes region? None of the heat really ever gets here and for the next week or so that pattern looks to be holding. What is going on here?
  2. Measured approximately 20 inches on the flat this morning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Still ripping outside. Will come to end within the hour. Should have between 18"-20" on the ground tomorrow morning.
  4. Recieved nearly 15" of snow in the past 7 hours. Still have about 7 more hours of heavy snow. The Presque Isle county sheriff's department closed down the two main highways for the remainder of the day and all government offices have been shut down. To think just yesterday we had about 2 inches of glacial snow left.
  5. APX issued an update to their map, currently using a WSW headline for my county.
  6. Coming in like a raging lion... This is not going to be fun to snowblow.
  7. Just started snowing finally here about 20 minutes ago in Rogers City, NE Lower MI. Hoping for some lake enhancement to kick in tomorrow.
  8. 4k NAM through 00z Saturday shows Rogers City (NE Lower) and surrounding areas getting between ~10-14" of additional LES. APX just extended our WSW from 4AM Thursday to 7PM Thursday. If the Saturday/Saturday night storm pans out, could go from basically no snow depth to almost 2 feet in no time. We already received about 8" through the morning hours, now in a lull. Once the winds switch back more due west, we should be right in the bullseye again. It was really crazy just how hard the snow was coming down this morning. Haven't seen anything like that in awhile.
  9. Getting pummeled right now by this lake effect band. APX just upgraded our WWA to a WSW until tomorrow at 4am. It's been a whiteout now for about 4 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Long time lurker here. I'm in Rogers City, MI (basically right on Lake Huron). Any chance the models aren't fully picking up the potential for lake enhancement for NE lower MI? Seems like APX never mentions LE for NE MI. I remember a few years ago there was a weak-ish low that moved over. We had 3 inches forecasted for our area, ended up getting over 18+ inches from lake enhancement. The local news even did a special on it.
  11. I live within a mile of the Lake Huron shoreline. It was interesting during the last "warm" spell when it generally hit 68-70 degrees in northern lower MI. At my house the outdoor thermometer read 52 (shade). When I drove out to my parent's house that same hour, it was 74 (shade). The lake breezes are only nice when it's 95 degrees out. Otherwise, they make warm spring days miserable once the wind switches off the lake. I've walked on the local bike path that follows the shoreline north of Rogers City. There have been multiple occasions where in one spot the temperature would be in the 50's and less that 100 yards away it would be in the 70's. Very interesting to walk through those temp gradients.
  12. Received 12" of fluffy snow over the past 24 hours in Rogers City, Michigan.
  13. Winds just went from calm to 25mph gusts in a few seconds. It will be an interesting night, hoping power doesn't go out!
  14. Just saw the blizzard warnings in WI. Green Bay NWS: THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN GREEN BAY HAS ISSUED A BLIZZARD WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 1 PM CDT THURSDAY.

  15. Lol none of the locals around here are celebrating this storm. We're all sick of it, even the snowlovers like myself.
