Yep you read that right the chances of a large storm affecting Michigan are starting to look more likely going into this weekend with rain, wind and even snow on the backside. Looking over all the computer models right now there is some differences in how strong the storm will really be and placement of the low pressure.
Image above is from the latest GFS Model showing a band of heavy rainfall across Southeast Lower Michigan that will quickly move out of the area. Some areas in Lower Michigan could see about an inch of rain, and that will be on top of the quarter inch of rain we will see tomorrow (Wednesday). The rain will quickly move out by Sunday Morning but the rain could be mixed with snow showers on the backside as a strong northwest wind will pick up with gusts over 40mph are very possible at this point. Those NW winds will draw in much cooler air for next week and the Lake Effect machine looks like it will fire up especially in the favored North west wind belts.
Now there had been some grumblings about a storm system right around Thanksgiving, that is still up in the air as right now it is not showing up on the models after today’s runs but could easily come back in the near future so stay tuned to Neoweather for the latest!
