March 2023 Observations and Discussion


Tom

Recommended Posts

Yesterday we woke up to around 1” of wet snow on the ground. That snow melted during the day as the official H/L at Grand Rapids was 41/33. The 1” was part of the 0.39” of precipitation that fell yesterday. There was 21 minutes or 3% of possible sunshine. The overnight low and current temperature of 29 with clear skies at this time. For today the average H/L is 41/24 the record high of 72 was set in 2000 and the record low of -3 was set in 1986. The record snow fall of 5.2” fell in 1935. The rest of this week looks to be around average for early March. The current seasonal snow fall at Grand Rapids is now at 89.8” and there is a chance we could add to that later this week. No matter what this will be the snowiest season at Grand Rapids since 2013/14. At Muskegon the seasonal snow fall is at just 47.3” that is -33.2” from average. At Lansing the total so far this season is at 49.1” that is +4.7”

There was some hope a few days ago, but models have trended away from that hard. Not only will it not snow, it looks like we will stay entirely above freezing with most days in the upper 50s or warmer for highs. So I went out and started my garden with my cool season stuff yesterday. 

A disappointing finish, much like the rest of the winter. Hopefully the active storm track brings some good storm days.

almost no lake effect this year for Muskegon.  That's what happens in a warm winter though.  The 2 big lake effect events went well inland towards GR.   I wonder what the biggest difference in snowfall total is  for GR vs Muskegon.   I'd have to imagine this is one of the biggest.

North Texas started out in the clouds this morning.   60* hazy and low clouds. Very nice for a change.  
Rain coming in in the early hours tomorrow. We’ll take all we can get.

So far this winter season Grand Rapids has had 89.8” of snow fall while Muskegon has only had 47.3” for a difference of 42.5”. Is this the biggest difference for Grand Rapids between the two locations?  Well no in the winter season of 2001/02 Grand Rapids had 105.2” while over at Muskegon they reported only 51.2” for a difference of 54.0” in Grand Rapids in Grand Rapids favor. While there may be others another winter season when GR had more snow than Muskegon was in the winter of 1928/29 when Grand Rapids had 55.4” and Muskegon had only 27.0” for a difference of 28.5 in Grand Rapids favor.  On the other side of the coin in the winter of 1993/94 Muskegon recorded 132.5” while Grand Rapids had 76.5” for a difference of +56.0” in Muskegon favor. In the winter of 1963/64 Muskegon had 142.8” to Grand Rapids 70.5” for a difference of 72.4” in Muskegon favor. In 1981/82 Muskegon had 173.9” to Grand Rapids 74.5” for a difference of 99.4”

WOW! The GFS and GEM have full blown winter from Iowa up to Chicago into Michigan for the next 2-3 weeks. Cold temps and multiple snow chances. Hell, the data looks way better here in March then it ever did in Dec/Jan/Feb. 

 

 

That’s kinda why I booked a flight and ventured off to the desert SW!  Temps out here are largely going to be AN with highs approaching 80F for St Patty’s Day and low 80’s next week.  Soooo much looking forward to the warmth.  Enjoy the snow back home!

Thanks for the info,  Good stuff.  The influence of Lake Michigan and wind directions is staggering.

Till it warms up and stays warm...prob in May sometime.  It all depends bc I might be bouncing around out here for a couple months at least.  Our winter sucked except for the timely Christmas snow and cold outbreak.  Oh, and we had 10 days in a row towards the end of JAN with at least 1" of Snow OTG.  Depressing!  I'm seriously considering doing an AirBnB in the mountains next winter.

Stepped out this morning to a completely white landscape and bright sunshine. The combo was splendid. Very surprised at the fresh 1/2 inch and mostly frozen puddles. 2nd morning in a row with some fresh snow/mix. March now solidly above the normal for entire month (132%) and will be the only month w/AN snow here (unless April??? NO!! - stop that!!). And it looks like March wants to keep roaring too. 

Anyways, the snow coverage value has been a negative number here this winter, but north facing properties are still mostly snow covered in the front and bare in the rear, lol. Plow piles/banks are ridiculously stout with the water content we got last Friday, so we should have those for this week's events. On a side note, my LES total for the winter is way higher this season (15.9% vs just 0.1% last year), and the highest percent in the last 3 seasons by far.

A rare for this incredibly warm winter season will be the upcoming stretch of below normal weather that is on tap for much of the area. This will also include a couple of chances of accumulating snow. The first chance is Friday night into Saturday AM and again around Monday. Of note through yesterday we are now a whopping 28.3" below normal in seasonal snowfall. To date we have seen only 2.7" of snow
Records for today: High 80 degrees (2000) / Low 7 degrees (1920) / Precipitation 2.96" (1995) / Snow 7.2" (1984)

We now have 7 days of March in the record books. The first week of March has been a mild and at some locations snowy one. The mean so far at Grand Rapids is 36.3 that is +4.9 above average. The warmest so far this month at GR is 51 on the 5th and the coldest so far will be today with 24. There has been 0.54” of precipitation of that 3.0” of snow fall. At Muskegon the mean so far is 38.1 and that is a departure of +6.3. There has been 3.0” of precipitation and just 0.3” of snow fall. The high there so far is 50 on the 5th and 7th Today is also the coldest low so far this month with a low of 27.  And at Lansing the mean there is the same as GR at 36.3 but the departure there is +5.5. There has been 0.78” of precipitation and 7.5” of snow fall. The highest so far this month is 52 on the 1st and the lowest so far will be today with 24.

At Grand Rapids the official H/L yesterday was 44/27 there was a trace of snow fall reported that must have fallen before sunrise. There was 100% of possible sunshine. The overnight low here in MBY was 22 and at the current time it is 23 and clear. For today the average H/L is 41/25 the record high of 78 was set in 2000 and the record low of -13 was set in 1943. The largest snow fall of 4.3” fell in 1931. There are at least 2 more chances of snow in the next week

Gotta put a new starter and gear in my stand up Superjet before I can ride. All I have to ride in cold water is a stand up jet ski, even with a 6mm two piece diving suit, boots, and gloves it's pretty cold out there when the air and water are in the 40s. I always try and make the distance between snowboarding season and jet ski season as short as possible. Last day for local riding is the 19th. My record between snowboard and jet ski is snowboard monday then jet ski friday. This year the record will fall. It's easy to complain about how bad this winter was and never being able to use my snowmobile, not even on the lake since it never froze enough to be safe, but a March like this is the best when you go from possible snow storm in the last week or two of boarding to the lake just waiting for you to jet ski.

Gonna siphon the gas out of my snowmobile and throw it in a ski. I'm actually pretty excited about this, a rapid change with weather between seasons hasn't happened the last few years. Last year the lake was so frozen because it was so cold so often but we had no snow cover.

Good morning. The official H/L yesterday at Grand Rapids was 44/24 there was no rain/snow fall. And there was 90% of possible sunshine. The overnight low and current temperature here in MBY is 32 with cloudy skies. For today the average H/L is now up to 42/25 the record high of 68 was set in 2000 and the record low of -7 was set in 1996 the record snow fall amount of 8.2” fell in 1998. Today should be cloudy with a cool NE wind and high near 40. Snow looks to move in later today and overnight and might drop up to 6” of snow. So it looks like Grand Rapids will be moving closer to that 100” mark for snow fall for the season.

Yesterday was our 1st below normal day of the month....but far from our last. It looks like a sustained stretch of below normal temperatures are on tap for one of few times this non-winter season here in Chester County. It looks like yet another wintry mix arriving later tomorrow PM with maybe a slushy small accumulation especially in NW Chesco in elevations over 600 ft ASL. The real accumulation will be about 20 miles north of here in Lehigh County. More wintry mix is possible on Sunday night but again just a slushy small accumulation.
Records for today: High 78.4 (2016) / Low 4 degrees (1984)/ Precipitation 1.86" (1919) / Snow 6.0" (1976)

We had a wonderful day out here in the PHX valley and topped out in the low 70's.  Lot's of Spring breakers and Snow birds in town as it seems like everyone has come out of hybernation!  While I was at the pool yesterday catching up with all the locals (even the regular snow birds), all of them were complaining how bad and ugly this Winter has been here in Arizona.  Its a catch 22 bc you want to nature deliver moisture and abundance but then you have to deal with the rain and colder weather.  As the saying goes, your patience will be rewarded.  Well, that appears to be what is coming down the road as we enter the official time of astronomical Spring (3/20).  Let's take a look...

The JMA weeklies are suggesting that good ol' SW ridge to pop and potentially Lock for a good while out here as we move into April.  Unfortunately, for a lot of you out in the Heartland of the Nation, it doesn't look to nice.  Where was this in Winter?

Euro Weeklies are singing a similar tune, but there is somewhat of a decent signal that it warms up by the time we flip the calendar into April for parts of the MW/GL's.

Took some cool vids and pics as we took off from ORD…

   


 

As we approached the SW, the mountains of NM and AZ were caked with a lot of snow.  Over the past 15+ years of flying down here, I’ve never seen this much snow and at such low elevations.

Our next severe storm risk will be Saturday afternoon and evening as a shortwave trough erodes some mid level CIN. Some pretty good MUCAPE develops, perhaps 1000-1500 J/kg. We should be able to see some marginally severe hail develop in this setup.

Finish with a bang here in KC???

Could there be a winter storm brewing for St. Patrick's Day in the heartland? 

This run does show some sleet down here, but I am not expecting it to actually happen. More likely it'll turn into another CA atmospheric river in a few days lol.

Finish with a bang here in KC???

Could there be a winter storm brewing for St. Patrick's Day in the heartland? 

Doh, I totally thought this weekend was St Patty's day bc in Chicago they are dyeing the river green this Saturday.  My bad!

As we approached the SW, the mountains of NM and AZ were caked with a lot of snow.  Over the past 15+ years of flying down here, I’ve never seen this much snow and at such low elevations.

Thanks for the photos/videos. You must be like me because I love having a window seat to see and record the beauty of the landscape, nature, and weather from above.

Always!  Plus, you sorta get a bigger area to sit in and can lean against the window.

Duluth is truly in different world when it comes to consecutive days of snow depth etc. Instead of 1" -- let's use 20" --(most people reading this have NEVER seen a 20" snow depth ONE TIME)  totally nuts. They make a run at top 2 for sure. Amazing

The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.
