WEATHER SYSTEMS WERE WATCHING   My Latest Weather Video Outlook
Monday, March 10, 2014 11:50pm - A significant winter storm has eyes on southern lower Michigan where 5 to 10 inches of snow could fall. While Mid Michigan looks to see around 2 to 4 inches of snow. Winds will kick up to around 30mph so if that happens we could see some issues for schools on Wednesday with blowing and drifting snows. If the storm were to track another 50 or so miles north then we could have bigger problems so will need to watch this storm closely tonight into Wednesday. Right now the odds are low stay tuned.  Looking down the road we are not out of the woods as to snow days as a very cold March will return with more snow chances.

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"
