    Near the peak of winter, temps warmest of the season

    WEST MICHIGAN-  It seems like a story I’ve written before (because I have, in some regards.)  We deal with several days of wintry precipitation and then we follow it up with a day or two of warmer weather, and much of that fresh snow or ice melts.  Guess what?  This will be a similar deal, but this time, with a bit more significance. We’re in the peak of winter at the moment, meaning this next week is supposed to be […]

    Freezing rain, icy roads Monday

    WEST MICHIGAN- Icy roads are already developing this morning and we’re looking at the possibility of more ice later on this afternoon. Winter Weather Advisories and Freezing Rain Advisories have been posted for many locations in West Michigan.  The difference?  We’ll see that wintry precip hold on for longer up north as temps remain below freezing for longer. Freezing rain will impact your lunch hour today as we are expecting a larger area of freezing rain for locations later today. […]

    Freezing rain, icy commute

    WEST MICHIGAN-  Freezing drizzle and freezing rain into the overnight hours have made things very slick, and this will continue this morning. Radar as of 6 this morning indicates a broad area of freezing rain and sleet off to the southwest, with embedded thunder and lightning!  This indicates heavier rates of freezing rainfall, and this will make things very slick along the Indiana Toll Road and areas along I-94. As a result of this ice, a freezing rain advisory is […]

    High wind tonight, ice possible tomorrow night

    WEST MICHIGAN-  Our several day period of messy weather continues with not much of an end in sight.  As the same system that has brought us rain, snow, and a wintry mix of precipitation lifts to the northeast, it will continue to have an influence on us tonight. The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch that goes into effect this evening and carries into early tomorrow morning. Sustained winds could reach the 30-35 mph threshold with winds […]

    Messy mix of rain, snow, freezing rain this week

      WEST MICHIGAN- It’s snowed almost every day for the last few days and that trend is likely to continue in some fashion through the mid week. As temperatures slowly increase throughout Monday evening, we’ll see an increase in moisture ahead of our next frontal system.  This will transition our powdery snow we’ve been seeing the last few days to a wet, heavy, compactable snow. By Tuesday morning, warmer air slowly creeps in from the south.  This will move that […]

    Lake effect snow, frigid air exit the region

    WEST MICHIGAN-  It’s been incredibly cold the last few days, with our high temperatures struggling to get over 10 degrees in some cases. This morning was our coldest morning of the year so far!!!  Ok, so that’s kind of a joke, because it’s only January 5th.  It was still very cold, though!  Our first subzero temp occurred in Battle Creek, and over the next couple of mornings, we can expect similar readings. Another pesky part of the frigid air is […]

    The New Year brings arctic air, lake effect snow

    WEST MICHIGAN —  We’ve seen a mix of patterns over the last several weeks.  We’d go into the deep freeze for several days, then you’d turn around and all the snow would melt. Arctic air is making its way further south, and this arctic blast will be felt by the end of the week.  We won’t quite go below zero, but our afternoon highs will struggle to get out of the teens. We’re still protected by the relatively warm lake.  This […]
