I'd gotta tell ya..Detroit so far is on a roll. Great start tbh......near 4.5" otg and more to come w/ tomorrows clipper. I sure do like all of these headlines so far. Keep em coming Ma Nature.

As for this crazy headline posted "Snow Squall Warning", it came down hard for a min, but it fizzled out as it was approaching my area. Nevertheless, it got windy/w moderate snow as it pushed on through.

When I peeked at radar, I quick flipped over to DTX warning map expecting to see a SWS at least - nuthin tho. So I went back to radar only to see the thing get completely destroyed as it came south thru the higher terrain of Oakland Cnty. Would've been awesome way to cap off this first weekend of winter. What did reach here was brief SHSN. Still, going up the Market, it was nice to see plowed snow and not hafta wait til February!

I cannot recall when the last time I saw SSW in my forecast. It must have been a long time ago. But yes, too bad it faded as it moved south. That band looked like a beast, but in any case, it lasted briefly w moderate snow and gusty winds (20mph+), which was definitely ok by me.

Ya ready for the next clipper? Its on its way.  😉

Amigo, this is #fun isn't it? This is what the GL's are good at in a favorable pattern - frequent snowfall, especially if you live in a LES belt. Almost non-stop when you get on a roll. I was fortunate enough to experience 7 winters of such in NWMI (not to mention my winters working in SWMI). I posted how active this Nina pattern could be once it dropped south to include our LAT.

Looks like my former snowmobiling region is getting slammed with today's 2ndry clipper:

Btw: My forecast is definitely colder next week, than what was predicted earlier. Only one day in the 40s now and the rest is 30s for high temps and 20s for lows. The weekend looks even colder now w/ snowshowers.

The way this autumn(winter) has come on so strong, I have a difficult time believing it's suddenly going to torch us. I could be wrong, but the models flashing such may have just been models wrestling with an upcoming pattern adjustment, or re-alignment. If it's meant to be a good winter (or at least a good "period of wintry conditions") for our region we could see a short stretch of AN, then right back into the chill. At least that's the way it's feeling to me based on what I call "Old school rules", lol

I hear ya!

Also...not sure why, but for some reason, doesn't this seem to have (just a little) flashbacks of late Autumn 2013-14?! Not sure why, but for some reason, it keeps throwing in that year to me. I remember it was cold late Autumn that Winter and then I think (If I am not mistaken), by Dec 7th or 8th, give or take, we have our first accumulating snowfall. Correct me if I am wrong amigo.

You're correct on autumn 2013. Flipped hard from AN to BN mid-Oct with steady cold-n-snow commencing on the 8th of Dec. There was ups and downs tho. After we had cold shots of arctic air, and LES outbreaks, that was followed by the powerhouse 11-17-13 storm and TOR outbreak. This reminding me of Nov 08 which was cold, and the first storm left 4" in Marshall Nov 30th. In his weekly summary, JB was showing that this Nov has aligned very well with both 07 and 08. He's also been beating a drum for the Dec 95 cold signal since the tropics have a rare alignment only seen in that one winter (my personal longest and coldest). He likes to play a game of cross-pollinating analog seasons, and when you do it with those (3) analogs you will get this for DJF:

image.thumb.png.3df4ed57c54867a8518fa512000d5099.png

Oh, and for transparency and fairness. He showed 2012 was another Nov analog and that ofc was very warm DJ, then FMA were super-frigid. Obviously, if he'd have included it, this map would look a lot less extreme, pretty tame even which 07-08 was if you recall.

There was a trace of new snow fall here yesterday but with highs here in the mid 30 some of the snow on the ground melted and there is just one inch on the ground here this AM. There was some clearing overnight and the low dropped to 19 here the official low at GRR was 21. At this time it is 24 here with broken clouds.

Sioux City has blown by the old record and expected high temp today.  It is 70º at 2pm.

We have also exceeded our forecast.  It is currently 54º... nowhere near 70º, but still pleasant.

With the very warm weather today, here is an interesting article from 2019 about one of the strongest cold fronts in American history that passed through the central states on November 11, 1911. Oklahoma City and Springfield (MO) both set record highs and lows on this same day! Maybe something like this will brush away the warms temps moving into December...ya just never know..lol.

"At least two cities accomplished an incredible feat by setting both daily high- and low-temperature records on Nov. 11, 1911, that stand to this day.

-Oklahoma City: A record high temperature of 83 degrees was set during the afternoon. Just before midnight on Nov. 11, a record low of 17 degrees was observed. The front was also accompanied by a dust storm.

-Springfield, Missouri: At 3:45 p.m. local time, the temperature was a record 80 degrees. It then fell 67 degrees in 10 hours to a record-setting low of 13 degrees just before midnight on Nov. 11. Winds gusted up to 74 mph in the city as the front swept through, causing damage to buildings, the National Weather Service said."

Love that wx lore. What's strange is, I don't consider MO one of the Plains states. Some truly incredible stuff from the wx dept in this country. Another autumn wild one is AL having snow on 11/2/66.

Intra-hour 38F, makes this the 4th day in a row our high was in the 30's. Depending on tomorrow's projected 40F high temp, we could finish with 5 straight 30's and close to 2 degrees BN for the month. Both are going to be a very close call if we get any help from lingering clouds, or whatever. Strong sun with WAA, we roast lol.

Hoping w snow cover around and low sun angle this time of the year and like you said (clouds lingering around), we can keep those 30s for highs tomorrow and go for 5 consecutive days in the 30s.

Yesterdays official snow fall of 3.5" at Grand Rapids is now the 4th snowiest for any November 29 at Grand Rapids. For the month of November Grand Rapids is now at 9.7" this is above the average for November of 7.1" It should be noted that the November record at Grand Rapids is 31.0 set in 2014. At Muskegon they have recorded 5.6" of snow fall this November and at Lansing the total is 5.4"

Full on sunshine this morning, and lack of an actual CF passage kept temps up overnight. Only dipped to 32F right after sunrise. Then up from there to 40F, so no finishing Nov with a stretch of 30's. Still, a flip month from October, and we made it all the way to see two decent snow events.

DTX mentioned how last winter did NOT act like a La Nina. Maybe this winter will make up for that.

Would be nice to see ground temps lower too. Not a fan of snow melting so easily as it did today. Easy come, easy go this time of season ofc, so not griping. We've been lucky to see some early snow vs most. Cheers to our luck spilling over into December! Do you remember Dec's 07 and again 08??

Yes...I agree about ground temps being a little too warm. That sunshine today really did a number on our snowpack, but its okay because like you said in your statement above, it is still end of November, so its normal for that to happen. December ma friend will hopefully be a different story.

Amigo...December 07-08" was a nightmare, if you are a fan of Winter. You might wonder what the heck am I talking about, right. Well, that Winter, I was still in NYC and it was a very frustrating Winter season. Sleet after sleet after sleet, changing to rain, followed by colder air..and etc and etc. I am sure you get the picture. Probably was the opposite here in SMI because we were getting a lot of cutters at that time, so more snow for you guys. It got better though the follwing Winter and 2010-11 was a superb Winter in nyc. Blasted w huge snowstorms, especially the one on December26th, 2010.

Here's my November stats from MBY.

Avg low: 33.0 (+2.8) Lowest min: 21.0 (25th)

Avg high: 55.0 (+4.7) Warmest high: 73.0 (16th)

+3.8 degrees for the month (8 out of 11 months above average so far this year)

.33" rain (-1.12" deficit)

Trace snowfall. Set 3 record highs at the airport.

I noticed last November was basically the same here as well with 32.3/55.2 for the average low and high and we only received .2" of snowfall. Then December came and the last 3 weeks of the month delivered 10" of snow, but we still ended up 4.5 degrees above normal for Dec '20. That's the way I like it, snowy and not bitterly cold, so I wouldn't mind a repeat of that this month.

Well, it's official. My first winter month here was an autumn month. 😁

Finished the month with a "normal" 30th, leaving the monthly stats like this:

Temps: -1.8F

Precip as liquid: 1.91"

Total Snowfall: 7.7"

Greatest Depth: 4.0"

(I actually did a little better in two snow events, thus my signature reflects such)
