WEATHER SYSTEMS WERE WATCHING
Updated: Monday February 23,  4:55am.  Every Day this week will see a chance for problems for area schools mainly due to extreme cold and wind chills but also for snow and blowing snow for Tuesday late morning in to Wednesday.  While not a lot of snow is expected at this time, 1-2 that we do expect will really blow around Tuesday night into Wednesday so Tuesday night activities and Wednesday look to be the most troublesome period.   The potential for significant snow this weekend could cause problems for early next week but will focus on that as we end the week.

CURRENT FOG AREAS

Confidence Of Any 1 Of Mid Michigan Schools Seeing A Delay or Closing, These numbers to go up or down as storm or potential storms gets closer and is better known on its impacts to our area schools. Again also plan as if school is going to be in session. I will rarely use 10 and will not use 0 as Fog is a tough call during the spring and late fall months which makes forecasting a 0 a hard call at times. As a rule threats farther out in time will start low and increase or decrease as we near the possible event and as better confidence is realized.
0-1  Plan On It Kid,
2-3  Plan On It Kid, Well Maybe ?
4-5  Be Ready For School, But Listen To Your Radio or Watch Your Local TV Station
6-7  Good Chance For A Delay Or Closing But Still Plan On School, Ears Tuned In To Be Happy OR Bummed
8-9  OK Feel Most Likely No School !, Tell Parents To Wake You If You Have School, Then Say What The Heck If They Do!
10   While Almost Never 100%, Schools, Most Schools WILL NOT OPEN or WILL CLOSE, Not likely to see me use this
     number very often and when I do I would often expect multiple days without school. "Monster Storm"
