It’s been a fair winter, but an annoying one at that.

The above average temperatures we have experienced this season allow a nice walk around campus, but it has taken one of my favourite past times (snow tracking) with it. In the coming week we may see two rounds of snow to keep winter alive.

Friday was surprisingly eventful. A general 1-3 inch expectation was amplified to 2-6″  across lower Michigan. Lake enhanced snows kicked things off early afternoon, but a developing low pressure system to the south ushered in more fuel for synoptic snowfall.

Our next shot at snow comes Tuesday as a low tracks eastward. This looks to stay light with accumulations around an inch. Not too excited for this system, but anything for winter’s sake.

Moving into Thursday, a low will take an identical path, but bring with it more of everything the Tuesday system lacked. As it looks on the models, extreme southern Michigan may receive liquid precipitation while areas north will see snow. Amounts are still up in the air, but I would assume at least a 2-4″ blanket for areas that see snow the whole way through. Will continue to watch this as the week progresses.
