Off and on rain. Had some sleet mixing in a little while ago but nothing big. Don't expect much of the white stuff

0.66" of rain here.  We've had four big systems move through over the last couple weeks, each dropping between 1/3 and 3/4 inches.  Other than one very brief downpour, our rain rates through all four systems remained in the 0.04-0.12"/hr range.  I'm looking forward to moving beyond cold light rain.

GRR's area has 16 hazard links this evening! Doesn't get more colorful around these parts. WWA starts at 2 here at home, with 50-60 mph winds expected along the coast at work starting at 5. Can't call it boring at least. And the silver lining is sunny and 60 for the weekend! Would be an Arctic plunge if it were January no doubt. ;-)

Currently, windy with bouts of heavy rain and wind. Tomorrow will be a different story with rain and wind transitioning to snow and wind with accumulating snow arriving, along with blowing snow as well, especially at night. Accumulations will vary between 3-8inches. Depending on where you are. North of DTW, those areas will do much better, in terms of snowfall (I am in the 2-4"+ range).

Was at DTW on the 27th and there were still large piles of snow. Caught me by surprise tbh. Here we go again though. Like last year, more like winter in spring!
