Yes, I actually am using this cheesy graphic. Just the same, this storm is no laughing matter, as WXYZ reports in Winter storm headed toward metro Detroit.
What does the National Weather Service say about the storm?
A WINTER STORM TO IMPACT THE REGION TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY...I've already cancelled my morning meeting. As for my classes, I'm hoping the college declares a snow day. Six inches will be just enough to do it. If the storm reaches nine, Detroit will hit a record for snowfall during a season. I don't know whether to root for that outcome or not.
.A RAPIDLY DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH THE OHIO VALLEY TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. AS THIS SYSTEM STRENGTHENS... MUCH COLDER AIR WILL BE DRAWN INTO SOUTHERN MICHIGAN UNDER INCREASING NORTHEASTERLY WINDS. PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN AS RAIN BUT TRANSITION TO ALL SNOW BETWEEN THROUGH 2 AM. THE SNOW WILL THEN PERSIST INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...BECOMING HEAVY IN METRO DETROIT RIGHT AT THE MORNING RUSH HOUR. TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE BETWEEN 2 AND 6 INCHES BETWEEN M 46 AND M 59...AND BETWEEN 6 AND 9 INCHES SOUTH OF M 59. THOSE STRONG NORTHEAST WINDS WILL CREATE AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW THROUGH THE DAY.
