December 21, 2014 - 9:50 pm update – SUNDAY NIGHT BRIEFING – It’s snowing in the Western U.P. with reports of 2 inches in some areas – freezing rain in the Eastern U.P. and freezing rain and rain is in the forecast for Northern Lower Michigan.
It looks like the Western U.P. will get moderate to heavy snow this week from the big snow storm in the forecast leading into Christmas and the Christmas holiday.
The discouraging news is that the first part of the storm early this week will bring rain to Northern Lower Michigan and the snow totals in the forecast for later in the week are not as big as in earlier forecasts.
The good news for the holiday week is that high temperatures will be in the 20s and teens and there is lake effect snow in the holiday forecast. This should help keep the ground frozen and help to keep any snow that we do receive.
We’ll have a better idea in the next couple of days. Let’s hope the storm will bring more snow than they are currently forecasting.
You can get an idea of the best opportunities to get an early season ride from viewing the Snow Depth Map.
