Southern lower Michigan is under a severe thunderstorm watch while a tornado warning has been issued for the area circled in red between Ann Arbor and Detroit. We have had a continuous round of thunderstorms since 9:30 this morning. So far, we have received over an inch of rain.
Feeling sorry for the rest of the nation facing the wrath of this latest winter storm, Titan, but can't help but be thankful if any part of it manages to miss us here in Michigan. We've had more - much more - than our share this time around :<(
This one should miss us thank Heavens! We don't need more snow!
Yet another Winter Weather Advisory in effect. This one from 4am Thursday, 2/20 through 7pm Friday, 2/21. Snow, Sleet, Rain, Freezing Rain - Ice could accumulate to 1/4" - fog, wind...this one gives us a buffet of misery to expect. This is the winter that will not quit!
. . . and another 5-7 predicted for today.

Sunday Jan 19th 8:59 AM Currently the Mackinac Bridge is experiencing winds of sufficient force in the Straits area to require an escort of certain "high profile" vehicles across the Mackinac Bridge. High profile vehicles include pickup trucks with campers; cars with small boats, bicycles or luggage attached to the roof; Ryder or U-Haul trucks; any vehicle pulling a boat; semi-tractors with enclosed trailers and all trailers with side walls over two feet in height.
Motorists are asked to reduce their speed to 20 miles per hour as they approach the bridge and be prepared to stop. Bridge personnel are stationed at both ends of the structure to provide instructions regarding how and when to proceed across the bridge.
