    Lake affect for local climate

    I don't live in WI, but I've lived a stone throw away from Lake Huron my entire life. I can vouch for how horrible living extremely close to Lake Huron/Michigan can be (weather-wise). For example, we've had maybe 4 solid 70 degree days in Rogers City, MI for all of 2019. Meanwhile, it's been in the low 70's and 80's countless times just 6 miles west of Rogers City. We always end up getting an onshore breeze late morning; which can drop the temp from a comfy 65-68 to 50 instantly until evening. I'm seriously considering moving further inland because of how terrible the "spring" weather has been for the past few years. It's almost the middle of June and I'm still wearing my winter jacket outside. Who wants that?! Sick. Of. It.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    Puking snow right now in Rogers City, MI with sustained 20mph winds, gusting to 32mph. It hasn’t come down this heavy all winter. 12z HRRR shows 15-18" of accumulation between now and 00z Thursday. .

    12z NAM looking like a good hit for my area (Rogers City, MI in northern lower).

    Hybrid Clipper Event 1/27-1/29

    Things are just getting started here in NE Lower MI. APX calling for 8-12” by tomorrow with locally higher amounts due to lake enhancement from Lake Huron. .

    Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gaylord MI 1139 AM EST Tue Jan 22 2019 .UPDATE... Issued at 1139 AM EST Tue Jan 22 2019 First warm advection band of light snow is exiting far northern Lower and working its way through eastern Upper. Area webcams show only a light coating on some roads, with little impact other than a temporary reduction in visibility. Looking upstream, radar returns are starting to fill in over the central and western UP as a sheared-out shortwave crosses Lake Superior. However, still not much filling in up to this point over southern WI down into the Central Plains as the more potent shortwave slowly gathers steam. That should change soon as we head into the afternoon and the system drifts farther east, starting to tap into a feed of Gulf moisture. The southward/downward trend in QPF continues across northern Michigan with the latest suite of 12Z guidance for the impending winter system. Both hi-res and synoptic guidance hint at this likelihood for the rest of today through tonight. Have tweaked PoPs and QPF accordingly, which generally reduced snowfall amounts through daybreak Wed by an inch or so across most of the area. At this point that wouldn`t affect the ongoing advisory across the area, but it does suggest that upgrading to a warning anywhere is looking less likely. Will continue to monitor trends this afternoon and evening.

    Lol @ the past few runs of the NAM. Went from missing us to the north, to right in the bullseye, now missing us to the south. It'll be interesting how APX handles the headlines today. It will also be interesting to see the 12z GFS to see if it caves to the south trend.

    April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    I really hope this weenie map is way, way wrong. Latest GFS run shows 38-40" of snow for most of Presque Isle county.

    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?

    Still ripping outside. Will come to end within the hour. Should have between 18"-20" on the ground tomorrow morning.

    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.
