Weather history

1899: Muskegon hits an all-time record low of 30 below zero. Grand Rapids is 21 below and Lansing is 22 below.

1999: A wave of warm air ahead of a cold front sends February temperatures to all-time highs in much of lower Michigan. February records include 67 degrees in Muskegon and 69 degrees in both Grand Rapids and Lansing. Battle Creek’s temperature is 72 degrees.

On February 11, 1999, the temperature rose to 70 degrees in Detroit. This is the first 70 degree day ever in Detroit.

1895: The low temperature was 11 degrees below zero in Moline, Illinois, marking the last 16 consecutive days in which the low temperature was at or below zero. During the first 11 days of February, the highest temperature in Moline was only 13 degrees above zero. The current average high temperature in early February is in the lower 30s.

1935: The lowest temperature recorded on the continent of Africa was recorded on this date in 1935. A very cold temperature of 11 degrees below zero was recorded in the village of the Atlas Mountains in Ifrane, Morocco.

1962: A powerful F3 tornado has struck Holstebro in Denmark, causing devastating damage. More than 100 homes were severely damaged or destroyed, making this event the most destructive hurricane in Danish history. The tornado would have been a low-end F4.

1983: This major snowstorm, dubbed the “Megaglopolitan Blizzard,” affected the mid-Atlantic and southern New England. Up to 25 inches of snow fell in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Up to 35 inches of snowfall occurred in parts of West Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains in Glen Carey. Windsor Locks, Connecticut, recorded a record 19 inches in 12 hours. A ship sank off the coast of Virginia/Maryland, killing 33 people. There were 46 storm-related deaths. New 24-hour snowfall records were set in Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Hartford, Connecticut. Five inches of snow were recorded in one hour in Allentown and Hartford.


Discuss expectations

- Tranquil weather today and Monday

A sfc high pressure ridge over our area will result in tranquil
wx today through tonight. Regional IR sat trends do show rather
extensive cloud cover across our region. So while some partial
sun is expected from time to time we expect a fair amount of
cloud cover to linger today. High temps will reach the upper
30s to lower 40s today with mins tonight in the 20s.

Fair wx will continue Monday. A consensus of latest higher res
computer model guidance and ensembles continues to suggest that
most of the cloud cover and all the precipitation with the TN
valley low pressure system will stay south to se of our area.

In fact time height rh progs across our region suggest we have
potential to see more in the way of sun tomorrow than today.
This should help to boost high temps into the lower to middle
40s across our area.

- Relatively quiet and cool early to mid-week

The first half of the week looks relatively dry and cooler,
especially compared to the warm weather we had this past week. The
bigger system that will organize to our south and east is expected
to entirely miss the area on Tuesday. This system is part of the
southern branch of the upper jet, and the northern branch is helping
to keep it out of our area.

What it will do is draw much cooler air down from the north with a
decent low level flow from the north expected. Some light lake
effect can not be ruled out downwind of Lake Huron once the flow
becomes from the NE. Lake effect parameters are not favorable at
all, other than the colder temperatures moving in. This is because
the northern branch of the jet core will stay north of the area.
This means inversion heights will be fairly low, and keep a lid on
showers.

- Next best chance of precipitation to arrive around Thursday

The area will be in between the northern and southern branches of
the upper jet, so no major systems expected. We will see a piece of
energy in the northern stream brush by close enough to bring a
chance of precipitation to the area. This system will have enough
warm air for the onset of the precipitation to be rain or snow.
Cooler air will then move back in, and turn any lingering
precipitation to snow.

Even with the cooler air over the area by next weekend, we are still
not expecting any major snow accumulation events for the area. The
one system moves through on Thursday. The northern branch of the jet
will stay to our north, keeping the deeper cold air north also. A
few snow showers will be possible, but nothing that will have much impact.
