It's Super Bowl Sunday, West Michigan! And despite mostly cloudy skies and a few sprinkles, temperatures will touch the lower 40s by afternoon. That's nearly 10-degrees above average! Not to mention, we gain an extra two minutes of daylight today. Hallelujah! The chance for flurries overnight is encouraging as an area of low pressure swings by the state. That shouldn't much impact the morning commute, though roads will become a big concern later in the week.
Live Doppler radar adopts a snowier scene starting Tuesday as northwesterly winds carry cold air over the warmer lake. A big bend in the jet stream keeps Arctic air around through at least Thursday, if not longer. Models are having a tough time agreeing on temperatures come this time next weekend. Lake effect snow showers, heavy at times, will favor locations south of a line from Holland to Battle Creek, and west of U.S. 131 from Tuesday morning into Thursday evening. Accumulations are likely, with significant snowfall, 6-8", possible along the Lake Shore during the long duration event. Stay tuned as we adjust our forecast with the latest model runs!
