Today I’m reporting from Sunny SoCal! Yup, it’s vacation post time for me! I bet some people in Flint would like to be where I am right now, when they see what’s in store for them.
At 1153pm EST, the temperature at Flint, Michigan was 26 degrees under fair skies. High pressure controlling New England and most of the Northeast extends over the Great Lakes, keeping overall conditions fairly tame tonight. However, a big change is a comin’ over the next couple of days, and it’s taking shape over the Plains currently. A rather impressive pool of cold air aloft has dropped down over the Rockies as a trough swings through the western US. Throughout they day Monday, low pressure is going to develop over KS/OK and lift NNE-ward, spreading rain and snow from the Dakotas/NE to MO/IL. For Flint, this doesn’t mean much for Monday, just increasing clouds. However, as the low screeches to a halt over MN/IA, the occluding front will race through the Western Great Lakes, bringing rain to Lower MI. Flint looks like they should dodge the heaviest precip on Tuesday, but it will be enough to damper everybody’s mood. Could be worse, could be in SD/MN where around a foot could fall in some areas!
