the 18z GFS has 4 separate systems tracking the SLP directly through Iowa. The Iowa SLP magnet is real. I'd actually love to start seeing some 50s and 60s in the extended. Last year at this time temps hit the 70s in Eastern Iowa. I even went golfing in shorts it was so nice out.

if we don’t have any snow on the ground next week looks warm

Extraordinary warmth accompanied with a near record -PNA/SE Ridge pattern in Feb has lead to a LONG list of cities (24) with the warmest February day ever recorded for the month.  #Torch

It is 0 F at the Rapid City Airport; and most of the models don't have anything too extreme tonight.

 

However the ICON drops them down to -28 F by morning; and I absolutely agree with it.  Maybe not quite that far; but at least to -20 F.

 

I came quite close; the low yesterday morning was -18 F; an all-time record for the date.

Some icy conditions expected tomorrow morning, but quickly transitioning to plain rain. Lots of flooding here. Roads had to be closed due to snowmelt and previous heavy rains. Temps today remain in the 30s w clouds breaking in the afternoon and allowing for some sunshine to peak through.

Gotta love the -NAO. Big potential here for a big snowstorm for my area end of Feb to early Mar. It tries to go as a warm cutter, but changes course and heads south of SMI, which is a excellent track. Areas that get affected also are Eastern IA,  far Northern IL, Southern WI and SMI.

This is some information as to the flooding that is expected in the Grand Rapids metro area Friday and Saturday. This is the write up from CH 13 Grand Rapids

 

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - There are projections, computer models and educated guesses, but no one is certain how high the Grand River will rise in West Michigan this weekend.  

So, a lot of people who live along the river are preparing for the worst. They say experience tells them to never underestimate nature.

Willow Drive NE is a residential area prone to flooding when the river is high. Now, because of snow melt and recent rain, some projections predict a flood comparable to 2013. People in low lying areas say they are getting ready.

“A little flood is nothing but what they are talking about, it’s going to be in some people’s houses down here again,” says Willow Drive resident Lawrence Kok.  “What they are talking about is the top of the bottom sash of those windows,” he says while pointing to the first-floor windows on his house."

“Prepare now,” says Kent County Emergency Manager Jack Stewart. “It still hasn't hit yet but it is going to hit. We are going to get flooded.”

Across the river from Willow Drive, a big beer festival is scheduled at Fifth Third Ballpark Friday and Saturday.  In 2013 that parking lot flooded.  

On Facebook The Michigan Brewers Guild says their Winter Beer Festival will go on as planned this weekend. They say they hope there is not a major flooding situation, but they have contingency plans for parking and traffic flow they can implement if necessary.

“The projections look like this is going to be a major event,” says Stewart. “Not quite to the degree of 2013 but we don’t know because all we have are projections.”

Working with the ECMWF; as the heavy snow closed to within about 125 miles of here with the 0z run.

 

This March 3rd Storm has now disappeared entirely.

 

Will it come back?

The flooding that will/is taking place is more likely than not the worst non ice jam flooding to take place in Michigan history. At this time the total precipitation here at Grand Rapids for this month is now at 4.82" this puts GR in 3rd place for the all time most for February and is the most for any February since 1938 when 5.30" was reported the record is 5.77" in 1898 but in looking at the daily report for that month I question that amount (there are back to back days with 1.40" and that is with 6 and 5" of snow) that would be 2.80" with just 11" of very wet snow and on the 2nd day the H/L was 22/18.  For comparison the so call GHD storm in 2011 Grand Rapids had 17.2" of snow with 0.98" of precipitation with similar temperatures

 

Here are the latest flood information

Man, these potholes are really starting to piss me off. Horrible streets. Construction workers need to do a better job. As for flooding, there are some flooded areas in my vicinity, but hopefully, that resides soon. Near 50F today w cloudy skies.

My little March 3rd snowstorm seems to be coming back to life on the 12z Euro in eastern Pennington County...less than 40 miles to my east!

If this March 2nd storm does not shift westward by at least 250 miles; I will experience the most profound sorrow...

 

Time is running out; so I will need to put a Spell on the Atmosphere to Effectuate a Westward Shift.

 

*Looks for Her Spell Book*

 

The 12z Euro Control now properly destroys SW South Dakota with a delightful blizzard.

It's looking like a good shot at 50s here for 2 or 3 days early next week.  We can finally get rid of the remnant snow & ice and thaw the ground.


season snowfall: 3.4"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

It disappeared again at 12z today...at least for out here.

 

This is troubling; if the storm does not come, I may have to take matters into my own hands as that hierophant was instructed during his investiture quite some time ago...

As far as snow goes, this winter sucked.

 

I could have gotten more snow on Hatteras.

 

Hopefully the spring will be snowy.

Lot of wind out there. Currently under a wind advisory. Gorgeous weather shaping up of next week w Spring-Like temps. Speaking of Spring, 23 days left until it arrives. Time is running out for cities that are averaging below normal. ;) As far as I am concern, I stand pretty good this Winter, so if my area receives no more snow, then, I am fine w that. Detroit kicked a** this Winter, especially the burbs where I am at!  :lol:

With 3 days left in February I thought it would be a good time to see where several locations are in the seasonal snow fall totals we have 1 location still in the running for the least seasonal snow fall total.

Alpena with just 37.1” of snow fall this season is still in the running for the least seasonal snow fall total of 43.8” that was set in 2010

Grand Rapids  66.8”

Muskegon   91.6”

Lansing   45.3”

Detroit   52.7”

Flint 65.7”

Saginaw  31.1”

West Branch   28.7”

Houghton Lake   34.9”

Gaylord     92.2”

Petoskey   99.9”

Sault Ste Marie    87.6”

Marquette    110.0”

The dreaded Red Flag Warnings have reared their ugly head.  Snow piles here may be gone by tomorrow or Wednesday.

Really nice out there today. Stuff is melting away with the high sun angle and the moderating temperatures. My quinzee is going to melt though ;(

Grilled burgers last night, might do the same thing this evening. Spring sports start in Nebraska today.  Our track, soccer, tennis and golf teams are all practicing outside today.  That rarely happens this early in the season.

Honestly don't mind this dry pattern. Hoping to get the snow piles outta here and get the frost layer outta here too. Then I would love a warm, wet Spring so corn and soybeans can be planted earlier cuz I hate looking at blank, snowless fields.

It's already 55 here.  I wish this warmup would stick around.  Looks like we will be at or just above average for the next week.  Average high this time of year here is about 40 on March 1 and up to 44 by March 8th.

It's now up to 62, here, the first 60 of the year.  B)

 

There's still plenty of thawing to do.  The river, lakes, and ponds are still mostly frozen over and my lawn is still frozen in the shady areas.

Curious to see if the GFS continues to spin a low up south of Chicago middle of next week.  

 

Was hoping for more from this.  Might be SMI last shot at some good stuff.  Before it turns warmer on the reg.

Got d**n near 70 today, if we didn't hit it. Highest reading at my place was 68.5*F. Thankfully, our records are fairly out of reach, being in the upper 70s.

Its 29 F here at 6 PM MST.

 

There is still about 2 or 3 inches of snow on the ground...but bare spots are showing up in places with a southern exposure.

 

The ground has been well-covered with snow on 68 days this season.
