Remember this Winter Storm late in 2013? Could we see ALL of this on Thursday night and into Friday?

4/2/2014 Marquette, Michigan — It’s the talk of the town! This could be the biggest Winter Storm of the year on Thursday night and into Friday. Now, maybe it’s just me but it seems to be that most Winter Storms this past year have dropped snow ONLY on Friday…. and into the weekend.

As I’ve been paying close attention to this storm to our south, it appears that we could get upwards of one foot or more when all is said and done. Meteorologists have warned us that this could be the “biggest storm of the year yet!”

Rewind to April/May 2013…. didn’t we see our biggest storms close to the end of the season last year? I recall a terrible storm in May that dumped about one foot of snow last year. I was really hoping that this year wasn’t going to shape up to be a repeat of last year.

According to the Weather Eye Forecast Center, this is what we could see late Thursday night and into Friday:

… Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Thursday evening
through late Friday night…

Hazardous weather…

* light to moderate snow will develop Thursday night and become
   heavier on Friday before ending late Friday night.

* There could be a mix of sleet and freezing rain with the snow
   Thursday evening and again Friday morning with minor ice
   accumulations possible.

* Storm total snow accumulations of 9 to 15 inches are possible
   from Thursday night through Friday evening. The heaviest snow
   will be in the higher terrain areas of the Gogebic Range…
   Keweenaw peninsula and the Huron Mountains.
