  1. The March Lion Storm

    With the storm about over...final total is about 7" although would probably be at least 10" if it wasn't actually a little above freezing for much of the duration of the storm. Side roads are a slush fest.
  2. The March Lion Storm

    5" at 4 pm...still moderate snow and still at 32. A particularly heavy band just went through. Signs of the back edge of the snow getting close unless a deformation band swings back this way.
  3. The March Lion Storm

    2 1/2" of snow and only 1/8 th mile visibility with temps right at 32. Current backyard pic.
  4. The March Lion Storm

    Looking at Google Traffic...the main heavy snow band currently runs from Jackson to Brighton with others areas not enough to affect roads yet.
  5. The March Lion Storm

    Heavy snow/gigantic snowflakes along I-94 in Eastern Jackson Co. with about 1" at Noon. Where did the radar go?
  6. The March Lion Storm

    Snow finally started to mix in at 10:30 as far South as I-94 in Jackson County.
  7. The March Lion Storm

    Looks like the change over is starting to occur in a number of areas including Ingham county. Still pouring rain here in Eastern Jackson County at 34.7 F.
  8. The March Lion Storm

    Maybe but latest HRRR puts the highest QPF from the Washtenaw County line South. Of course the 2 or 3 degrees difference in temp will help the higher elevations or further North areas for sure.
  9. The March Lion Storm

    On the edge of the sweet spot here. Watching the main band of precip setup over a two county wide area it appears with more likely to build on the South side of it versus the North side. Temperature slowly dropping now down to 35. With perhaps 1.5" QPF expected...when it changes over will be interesting.
  10. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Had blizzard like conditions here for about an hour before we got in between bands and reminded there unfortunately. Briefly, it was the most intense snowfall of the season. Looks to be over but the stiff North wind is blowing snow all over the place.
  11. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    33 here in Eastern Jackson County. Looks like a very intense band of snow is going to set up between Jackson and Kalamazoo NE towards Lansing. Still not clear exactly where it will setup but guessing those locations based on radar trends. Also not sure just how fast the change over to snow will occur. Will be an interesting next few hours for sure. EDIT: Sleet began around 6:30 AM and 32. EDIT: Snow began around 7:10 AM and 31. So no more than a hour for a change over to occur. EDIT: Heavy snow at 7:20 am. (Very large flake size). EDIT: Near blizzard conditions at 8:00 am. 1" of snow, 27 degrees...visibility no more than 1/8 of a mile at times with gusty winds and blowing snow.

    Nice to see SE Michigan back in the play for a moderate storm. It appears will have to wait for the 0z model suite for the final call.
  13. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    True but the 0Z run was consistent with its own ensemble members which probably means future model shifts will be minimal. QPF's totals may come down as really that can't realistically go up.
  14. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    The writing is on the wall for this one... GFS has started the trend to the Euro as expected. Michigan may end up with some rather remarkable snow totals.
  15. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Agree. "FOCUS THEN SHIFTS TO STRONG SOUTHERN STREAM WAVE THAT WILL EJECT TOWARDS THE GREAT LAKES/OHIO VALLEY. MODELS HAVE GENERALLY STAYED IN THEIR CAMPS OF THE PAST COUPLE DAYS WITH GFS QUICKER AND FURTHER EAST WITH SFC LOW AND EC/GEM/UKMET ALL LEANING TOWARDS SLOWER/STRONGER AND FURTHER NW SOLUTION. INTERESTING NOTE ON 700 MB LOW ON THE GFS IS DEPICTED MUCH FURTHER WEST THAN SFC REFLECTION (OVER E OHIO SAT AM). SUSPECT WITH TIME THE GFS WILL COME INTO LINE WITH OTHER MODELS."
