Some more snowflakes

DETROIT “In the southeastern part of Michigan, hammering the great Norwegian eastern New England, it had exactly the effect I expected, many of us had an inch of snow and some of it fell between one and two inches of snow.

As for today, I think we will only see occasional storms or light snow showers, our roads will not be affected. The altitudes will fight for freezing (32 degrees – 0 degrees Celsius), the north wind at a speed of 5-10 miles / hour.

Thursday night mostly cloudy, low temperatures in the mid-20s (-4 degrees Celsius). North-northwest wind at 2-5 mph.

Friday’s cloud is a difficult call because as one large cloud mass moves, the other is approaching. So now I think we start the day mostly cloudy, we become partly cloudy for a few hours and then we get rainy again. The altitude shifts upwards until the mid-1930s (2 degrees Celsius).

Friday night mostly cloudy, low temperatures in the upper 20s (-2 degrees Celsius).

There is a change to discuss the weekend forecast. In recent days, I have discussed a weak cold front that crosses the neighborhood on Saturday, and it seemed that this front would be progressive (not in a political sense – in meteorological circles, something “progressive” usually moves constantly across the country. Region or country). In other words, it would cross the area late Saturday or Saturday night and we are ready with it.

However, every front or storm system is associated with a top-level disturbance, and now it seems to be another from the west, the top-level disturbance from the four corners passes across Oklahoma, then turns northeast toward us, and finally gradually with the top-level system associated with the weak front. This will do two things: slow down the front and increase the duration and amount of precipitation.

So I expect very light rain and / or snow on Saturday and the rainfall will last well into Sunday. The big question is the heat profile of the atmosphere: will it be cold enough at any time to give us accumulating snow?

This is a very delicate detail that is yet to come – one model says yes, the other says no. I hope that this can be resolved on Friday. The highest temperature on Saturday should be close to 40 degrees (4-5 degrees Celsius) and on Sunday the top 30s (3-4 degrees Celsius).

After a windy and relatively mild day at the Festivus (Wednesday), a strong cold front crosses the festival night and brings us a windy and cold Christmas Eve with a chance of snowfall. The day of Christmas itself looks breezy and cold, but it has to be dry.

The highest periods of Thursday and Friday are in the upper 20s (-2 degrees Celsius), with Christmas morning in the mid-teens and between the teens starting with temperatures (-8 degrees Celsius), with some wind chills. We’re still hoping we can squeeze out the white Christmas – it all depends on what happens on Thursday with the emerging lake-effect snowbands.
