Michigan’s First Inch of Snow Coming Next Week, but Where Will It Land?
My least favorite time of the year is almost here and that is cold temps and snow. I freaking hate both but learned to deal with it since I've lived in Michigan my entire life.
I don't necessarily hate the snow, it is nice for a couple of weeks surrounding Christmas and New Year's Eve. That's pretty much the only time that I enjoy it. It's the cold temps that I absolutely hate and next week it looks like we'll get our first real taste of it.
It's looking like next week is going to be a chilly one with temps primarily in the 40s during the day and in the 30s during the overnight. It's not going to be painfully cold but temps like that are a perfect recipe for snow. I'm not saying it's going to snow for sure but there is the chance that parts of the state could get hit especially if history repeats itself.
According to MLive, The first inch of snow typically can be seen in late November across southeast Lower Michigan and the second to last week of November for southwest Lower Michigan. However, Flint has seen its first inch of snow as early as October 12, so it's always a possibility. The latest that we've gotten our first inch is January, I like the sounds of that a hell of a lot better.
The way it's looking right now is that snow is coming next week but I don't think we'll have to deal with much if any at all. If you want to see snow, head north. Areas between Marquette and Houghton will see the most next week.
We're good for now...but it won't last that's for sure.
