The firearm deer season and the West Michigan ski season have begun.  The pic. above is Bittersweet Ski Area  Thursday evening.  They have been making snow and they received a couple inches of natural snow.  They will open today and over the weekend.  The overall cool pattern should continue into next week.  Other resorts will be open this weekend.  Here’s a list of Michigan ski conditions

Sunrise is 7:35 am in G.R. and sunset is 5:19 pm.  We’ll have a chance of light snow this AM and again Saturday AM.  We don’t usually have snow on the ground on Nov. 15 in West Michigan – much better chance of that in the U.P.  Winds will be west-northwest and brisk today, up to 15 mph.

Here’s Grand Rapids radar:

Temperatures will continue to be well below average:
 
The first two weeks of November were 5.4 deg. cooler than average.  We had 100% sunshine on Wednesday and back to 0% on Thursday..  Wednesday’s sun came to 587 minutes of sunshine.  The first 13 days of November COMBINED had just 255 minutes of sunshine.  So we more than doubled the amount of sunshine yesterday that we had received the previous 13 days.
