2018-2019 LES Season

Recommended Posts

The winds have been very favorable for my area.  Closing in on a foot of LES in addition to the system snow on Monday if I had to guess/  No real way to tell though with all the drifting.  Nice to see most of the western part of lower Michigan getting in on the action this time.

2-4’ of snow, winds gusting over 50 mph, temps around 0, wind chills -30s. Blizzard warnings issued, visibility is zero, going to be a all time event for Buffalo area. It’s a 1985 redux. Travel bans and state of emergencies issued. Haven’t seen a storm like this in awhile

Been getting 2-3 inches per day. The flakes are real small but the snow is heavy when the snow scoop gets full of it. It is like scooping corn starch. The main highway is like a Hockey rink. Probably could skate on it. One false move driving you are in Dire Straits. Luckily, not very many people driving around you have to watch out for.

Same here, the snow is like concrete once it piles up, picked another 5 or 6" since this morning. Whiteouts everywhere, closed my office at 1:00 today due to conditions, should start winding down tonight .

Pretty strong band setup last night for a couple hours just north of my location, 2-4" per hour rates per APX, doesn't happen very often in our LES Belts to see that intensity. 

Quote

Dominant band of lake effect snow dumped heavy snow along the M-32 corridor across the Gaylord area last night, roughly between 3 am and 5 am. This band produced between 4 and 8 inches of snow through that corridor, with substantially less snow on either side.

Marquette NWS reported up to 36 inches of snow from the Porkies to Twin Lakes. My parent's live out in Twin Lakes and can confirm this. Healthy convergance off of the increasing shirking open water on the big lake. Only about 5 inches here in Hancock. The convergence spread over to Baraga/L'anse where they reported a foot and they are right on the lake shore. I was wondering why they closed school there when there wasn't even any advisory out at the time of the cancellation.

Next clear day should be interesting re: the lake ice.  I'm betting this wind has opened up a lot of water.
