Weather Conditions 12-23-14
Hey Santa, I want some snow for Christmas!

Lots of sun - mild temps and some rain have really taken a toll on what little we had in our area. Yesterday there was less then 2" of snow around and lots of melting.

The Christmas storm that is in the forecast is starting a bit early. They were calling for all rain today, then turning to snow tomorrow, and into Christmas. Well, it was raining very early this morning, and it has turned into a very heavy super saturated snow. Big flakes mixed in with lots of rain water.

This looks like it will change back to rain and then end in another few hours, maybe taking away what it is giving us. Looks like Wednesday into Thursday we are forecasted to get 2"-3".

We are still in need of a decent storm to get things going around here. Go sit on Santa's lap, and ask for snow.

So there is a Christmas storm a brewing. Main focus of snow is in a heavy band South of us. Forecasts are calling for 1-3", but we are supposed to be on the edge of the 3-6" band just for St. Ignace. Not sure if it will be cold enough to get lake effect enhancement or not, but the wind direction is perfect for lake snows along US-2.

We will know both what Santa put under the tree and on the trails by this time tomorrow.

I must have been naughty. There is coal in my stocking and no snow on the ground. Rain never turned over to snow and we now have a green Christmas. You can't ride here even with boggies. I guess there is always the new year.

Day after Christmas storm produced nothing but rain right in Iggy. Nothing but grass around now. Maybe it will dry up enough to rack my leaves.:(
