Hi, I've been asked why I post here... but having grown up in the U.P. and having friends in the snowmobile business here up north whose livelihoods depend on the weather, it's something I enjoy doing. I Hope that some of you enjoy the fresh snow... lots of calls last night into our weather center about the thunder/lightning thrown in for good measure!

My weather spotters and chat with the NWS offices this morning show St. Ignace the big winner for snowfall with 9" tallied there. Allenville (just north of there) had 8". The Soo came in with 8". It appears that areas along/east of I-75 in the U.P. over the Drummond Island had 6-9 inches of snow.

For Lower Michigan, it was a bit spottier. Radar this morning showed heavy snow in the Straits region. I know Gaylord officially tallied 7.5" with Wolf Lake near Baldwin in Lake County coming in at 7". The Ludington area reported in 6" this morning. Most places along/north of highway US-10 in the L.P. picked up from 3-7".

Quiet and dry with flurries statewide Saturday... Weak low pressure rolls in Sunday meaning that some light snow is likely Sunday morning over Northern Lower (not a lot of accumulation with light snow lingering into Monday).

Yes, cold air is indeed on the way, but not until the Wed-Thu timeframe next week. Tuesday looks dry, with snow looking pretty likely Wednesday along our polar front that will roll through. Thursday into next weekend looks to be the start of an extended period of cold weather as that chilly airmass that has been locked up well north surges into the Lower 48 and the Upper Great Lakes. Yes, lake effect snow will set up shop in the snow belts later next week, but keep in mind that as you go later in the season, lake effect snow gets "more powdery" and doesn't pile up quite as much since the lake temperatures are much cooler now that in October/November and it requires a lot colder air to get that temperature differential and lake effect machine going--- aka... colder air holds less moisture meaning smaller flakes. Still, we at least won't be losing snow and slowly building back that lost base. Enjoy!

yeah thanks Joe.

I just put my new 1.75" track on today, along with a few other goodies that Santa brought me this year for x-mas. Now it's time for some of that magic white gold..........


Yes, I mean real snow, not the other kind of "snow"
