Clouds have come down from the north and are overspreading the area. They should be with us for much of the rest of the day, keeping temps. in the 30s. The picture above is the Muskegon Channel. Note that there is still slippery ice on the breakwaters. At 11 am – the temp. is 32 in G.R., just 27 in Cadillac. Snow flurries are reported at many weather stations north of Pentwater and Big Rapids and a few of those could rotate south into our area this PM…but mainly trace amounts. Winds are northwest at 10-20 mph, knocking the wind chills down to the mid teens to mid 20s.
