Kalamazoo, Michigan

I feel like any aspirations Kalamazoo may have had in it’s existence were severely hampered by the fact that it is named Kalamazoo.

At 553PM, ET, Kalamazoo was reporting a temperature of 30 degrees with light snow. A weak surface wave was rippling through the Great Lakes and dumping a bit of snow on Lower Michigan, though the heaviest of the activity was found just off to the north, from Muskegon and Grand Rapids to Flint. This trough is a short waved surface trough, and will move very quickly out of Michigan.
Tomorrow morning, resultant westerly flow will mean a continued threat for some flurries and clouds, through there should be some clearing by midday, as the flow becomes more easterly as a strong system begins to take shape over the southern Plains. There is actually a chance for some showers later in the day for Kalamazoo tomorrow with a push of warm air from the system in the Plains, however that rain will turn to heavy, wet snow by Monday morning as the fast moving system slides off towards New England. The good thing about the intensity of this system is that it will import dry, if cold air quickly, and there is a good shot at sunshine by the end of the day Monday.
Tomorrow – Morning flurries, then late showers, High 40, Low 26
Monday – Wintry mix early, changing to snow, then sun in the afternoon, High 39, Low 29

TWC: Tomorrow – Cloudy (showers late), High 43, Low 26
Monday – A few morning showers. High 40, Low 38

AW: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy (early snow, late rain) High 40, Low 21
Monday – Breezy with rain, then snow late in the day High 41, Low 28

NWS: Tomorrow – A chance of rain after 1pm. Mostly cloudy (Snow before 1AM) High 40, Low 24
Monday – Rain and snow showers likely before 1pm, then a chance of snow showers. Some thunder is also possible. Cloudy high 40, Low 29

WB: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy. A 30 percent chance of light rain in the afternoon (AM snow). High 40, Low 24
Monday – Rain and snow showers likely until midday…then a chance of light snow in the afternoon High 40, Low 35

Right now the radar only shows that surface trough and the snow it is bringing to town. Monday morning’s radar is likely to be more interesting.
