It’s this time of year that I usually say I hate winter, but the nice thing about this January is that it hasn’t felt like winter at all. Here in Michigan, at least where I live, it’s been very rainy and not winter-like. I’ll take it.
Unfortunately, that’s set to change. Or, if you’re a fan of snow, maybe that’s fortunate. On Wednesday (Jan. 25), lower Michigan is set to see several inches of snowfall, according to the National Weather Service.
According to predictions from the National Weather Service and at Weather.com, totals are going up just a bit from what there were projected to be earlie in the week. Lansing will get around 3 to 4 inches of snowfall with totals getting closer to 4 to 6 inches around and southeast of Jackson area. For Detroit, the snow forecast is similar but a bit heavier, with 4 to 7 inches projected. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Wayne, Lenawee, and Monroe counties until 10 P.M. Wednesday. Snow is expected to start earlier Wednesday and get heavy in the afternoon. Travel will be difficult into Thursday morning. More snow is possible south of M-59. A Winter Storm Watch has already been issued for much of lower Michigan, and more watches and warnings are expected to be issued as the storm gets closer.
