Michigan’s Weather Rollercoaster Continues
Not long after highs in the 70’s, the bottom is set to drop out today. Temps tonight are likely to be back in the 20’s and with the dropping temperatures comes the possiblity of more of the white stuff?
MLive.com is reporting a rain or thunderstorm today will make way for a change in precipitation tonight. Forecasters say 1-3 inches of accumulation is possible in the mid Michigan area that could make for some slippery roads for tomorrow morning’s commute. Parts of southeast Michigan could see even more snow that that, upwards to 5 inches.
The report indicates some communities are near record snowfalls already and this latest punch from Mother Nature will take them into the record books in what some say has been the harshest winter in decades.
The wet snow is expected to melt quickly as temperatures later in the week recover nicely, but with that comes additional worries. Communities all across Michigan are being warned that the run-off will cause flooding.
Last year at this time, some buildings in downtown Grand Rapids had to be evacuated due to rising water.
A storm system over the weekend is being blamed for tearing roofs off buildings–including a west Michigan school–and downing trees and powerlines. Some are still in the dark.
