Updates For Tonight

Storm track has seemed to shift to favor our area with a longer period of snow. Bumping amounts up to a max of 5 inches. Probably going to end up with 4, but places could see 5. I know usually there is at least a inch difference from my house to Chelsea, since it all depends what cloud you get under that wants to drop the most snow.Will be snowing most the night, should start around 5:15. Snow will end early morning. Snow Totals for Tues Night

THURSDAY NIGHT:

Everything goes crazy, from what I see now, we can get A LOT of ice .  More significant storm races up, blows up, and we get the whole bag. Starting as Snow, changing over to a mix, potentially almost a inch of ice, wow. Will definitely keep tabs on this. I know ice is good, but we don’t need a whole inch. that’s like power outage ice, not good since it will also become bitter again.

**Updated:
From the Detroit/Pontiac NWS Office:

"GIVEN THAT REFINEMENTS ARE EXPECTED, WE CURRENTLY FAVOR ALL SNOW IN THE TRI CITIES AND NORTHERN
THUMB, A MIX WITH A HEAVY DOSE OF SLEET THROUGH THE INTERSTATE 69
CORRIDOR, AND A MIX WITH PREDOMINANTLY FREEZING RAIN AND RAIN FROM
DETROIT TO THE OHIO BORDER WITH ALL ELEMENTS LIKELY EXCEEDING
WATCH/WARNING CRITERIA BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON."

Basically, areas north of us will get mainly snow and sleet, we will be stuck with about an inch of snow and Fz rain. I really don’t want that much ice. Very dangerous. Michigan is somewhere under that blue mass, just try to estimate where is is, or check this link for a higher res: http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/analysis/namer/gfs/18/images/gfs_ten_066l.gif. Once again, uncertainty lies, so be ready for anything. Winter Storm watch will probably be sent out when this current system has exited.
