Snow flurries and snow showers all day today. Picked up 0.1" here and DTW however some of the northeast suburbs got as much as 1 to 3" in a heavy band last night. Very interesting scenes during opening day, must have felt brutally cold inside a ballpark with wind chills in teens.

I cannot stop laughing watching Tigers opening day. A little chilly (63) here with full sunshine, but haha I do not miss opening day's such as these in Detroit. Just pounding Bailey's and coffee in a parking lot just to not shiver for 3 and a half hours in Comerica. 

 It's part of the experience lol. Opening day usually seems to fall on a cold sometimes snowy day.

Cabrera homering in the snow is kinda cool, no pun intended

it really was! Flakes fell most of the game but that homer was the heaviest snow, the outfielders could not see anything and after miggy hit it he did not realize it was a home run (since it bounced off the top of the wall) because he could not see it.

I went to the last one against the Royals and it was absolutely miserable. Might have to watch them when they go to Tampa this year

GFS has gone back to the backdoor cold front BS in the long range... like the Euro.  Elevated convection with the WAA will probably happen at some point, but who knows if the real warm sector ever makes it here.

Seems to be consistently 200+ hours out, like those fantasy long range arctic outbreaks it shows during the winter.

RFD hit 21 this morning, DKB 19, ARR 16.  22 here. 

Pretty impressive for April 2nd, especially considering there's no snow cover upstream in the Upper Midwest.

21 at DTW this morning. Yesterday's dusting of snow had melted/sublimated...but I suspect some.of the rural spots that had remaining snowcover in the thumb were well into the low teens. DTX White Lake hit 14!

This morning was our last sub-freezing low temp, at least for a while.  Today is the in-between day, back into the 50s with sun, but also windy so a bit chilly.  The big warmup moves in Saturday.

Problem is it's the ECMWF too.  I wouldn't call it "arctic", just snooze-fest crap where the warm front is close enough to cause clouds, but pushed south by easterlies from Canada.

I still have snow in the shade at my house.

My bleeding hands feel every bit of it. Cannot wait for things to moisten up a bit.

A high of 76° on 3/26/1989 is the warmest Easter prior to April 10th on record.

 

Tomorrow could get close.

71 degrees, breezy and the backyard is coming to life. Pre Easter ribs right off my smoker and IPAs, never get tired of this.. happy Easter everyone, and remember the blessings, it’s been a rough year for Americans.

I had an interesting afternoon with it being partly sunny at the start, then dark and overcast looking like the chance of showers was going to deliver. However nothing fell and now its cleared with full sun! Got to 50F.

When was the last time (anywhere in this sub) that both March and April were not just slightly above normal, but solidly? Unrelated, the latest euro 240h frame can gtfo!

Beautiful day—72 and full sun.  The day began with everyone outside for yard work and it ends with beer, grilling meat and discussions of pulled back muscles...

There are those of us that remember living pre-internet with no problem at all. You young whipper-snappers. Get off of my lawn!

My aunt's house was destroyed in this one but she survived. I saw a different one near Cincinnati on that day from a distance of 1-2 miles... Awesome...
