Our Dry January Continues – Mid Michigan

    Our local meteorologist was talking about our lack of snow since November.   It has certainly been unusually dry since then with just trace amounts of snow lately.  October and November brought more snow than what we usually see during those months, and everyone was afraid that it was a sign of things to come.  It seems, however, El Nino has kicked in and my area has been very dry  for the past month.  Our extended forecast isn’t calling for any changes with any winter storms remaining well to our south. Northern Michigan isn’t suffering from the lack of winter with areas north of Bay City reporting snow cover of 5-8 inches.  The snow mobile crowd will just have to travel a few hours to enjoy their sport.

    Our 9 AM temperature is 18°F (-8°C), the humidity is 73%, and winds are calm.  Skies are mostly cloudy with a little sun peeking through.  The pressure is 30.43 in (1030.5 mb) and rising.  The dew point is 13°F (-11°C).  Yesterday’s high was 27°F (-3°C) and the overnight low was 17°F (-8°C).  Averages for this date are 29°F / 18°F.

    DURAND / OWOSSO FORECAST:
