Although most of us are enjoying the so-far mild Michigan winter, the Weather Service and the Macomb County Department of Roads warns we're not in the clear just yet.
While Michigan residents have enjoyed a reprieve from Old Man Winter so far this season, the National Weather Service is reminding Michiganders that we're not out of the clear, yet. "Certainly rain in January is not typical for Michigan, but it's not unprecedented," Joe Clark, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s White Lake office said. Clark attributes warmer weather in the Metro Detroit area due to a northern jet stream that is slowly moving south, causing rain and autumn-like temperatures. After about an inch of accumulation in Macomb County from Friday’s snow, Saturday’s forecast calls for another 20 percent chance of snow showers with a high near 22 degrees. “Beyond that, it’s hard to predict when we could see the …

The National Weather Service says the winter storm has subsided, but now we're in for really cold temps.
Now that the winter storm, which left Shelby with about 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground has passed, the really cold temperatures set in. As Shelby and Utica continue to dig out Thursday make sure to bundle up because temperatures will dip to -9 degrees with the wind chill value. Friday will be really sunny, but don't let that decive you because it will be -10 with the wind chill. Shelby Township and Utica residents may have expected the worst Wednesday morning when they peered out their windows. But what they found was not the snowpocalypse some feared.
