Another Mean Streak?

The long awaited arrival of Spring is going to have to wait a little while longer. While no one expects sunshine and 60s in January, we have had quite the irregular month so far. 
Beating out the Blizzard of '78 in total monthly snowfall accumulation, 2014 has become the snowiest on record in the past 130 years! 


And even more is on its way. 

Your Friday will start off quiet and dry. This isn't your average 'calm before the storm', however. Very strong winds will rage through the area, ranging between 20-30mph all afternoon long. 


National Weather Service agencies have confirmed the threat of this storm. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for all of NW Ohio and most of SE Michigan-- with the exception of Lenawee and Monroe Counties. There is also a Wind Chill Advisory in effect. 



Snowfall officially arrives by midnight, along with those gusty winds. We're talking falling, blowing and drifting snow for a period of 12+ hours. From 12am-12pm Saturday, snow will be accumulating along roadways and on surfaces across the area while drifts build up, thanks to the wind. 


2-4'' is expected Saturday.
1-3'' is expected Sunday.
