Sunny breaks with isolated flurries

The weather, currently.

Don't hang up the snow shovels just yet...we have more snow on the way! There will be a number of systems pushing into the lower Great Lakes through early next week. Your Friday morning will be very cold, with a wake-up temperature near -10°C, feeling like -12°C with the windchill. We will be under variable cloudiness with a few isolated flurries. You'll likely need to use the snowbrush on the car early tomorrow morning.  There will be some sunny breaks tomorrow, but again, a few isolated flurries can not be ruled out throughout the day. A more widespread, but brief snow event will move in late day. It will be windy tomorrow with gusts 30-60km/h from the SW and the high will be -1°C, feeling like -6°C.

Friday night: an Alberta clipper moves in, bringing a quick burst of light snow and flurries but no significant accumulation. The low will be -1°C, feeling like -8°C.

Side Note: There is another potent storm system moving in Saturday afternoon, and the latest data suggests another 10+cm is possible.

Here is a look at the snowfall totals from Wednesday's storm

What you need to know, currently.

The views of Ann Arbor are right out of a snow globe as Wednesday marked the region’s first big snow of the year.

Ann Arbor public school kids had the day off and headed straight to Veterans Park to glide down Ann Arbor’s most popular sledding trail.

Patrick Grammatico brought his 3-year-old grandson to skid down the same hill he had visited in his youth.

“I remember coming here as a kid,” he told Michigan Live. “Today we got here early as another family was leaving and we had the hill all to ourselves.”Commuters braved the weather, snowflakes decorated the skies, hikers climbed higher heights to take in the views, families went on their first-ever sledding trip together, and even college students got in a snowball fight or two.

Climate change is making wildfires worse, damaging our communities and the environment. Not only do wildfires hurt our forests and put people in danger — burn scars can result in harsher floods — like we’ve seen in recent weeks across California.

Our partner Wren supports efforts to prevent wildfires by removing flammable, dead wood and turning it into biochar — removing carbon in the process. Join Wren to start funding climate solutions today, new users get 20 native trees planted for free on us.
