Detailed Metro Detroit snow forecast, 2 biggest impacts of climate change in Michigan right now, more
From meteorologist Paul Gross:
The next amount of snow will have a heavier weight of snow, so shoveling will be more difficult, but on the plus side, making snowmen is better!
But first we have a dry day on Monday, and this morning even limited sun breaks are possible. But we will be gloomy for the afternoon. Highs in the low to mid 30’s (0 to 1 degrees Celsius) with a north wind blowing northeast at 5 to 10 miles per hour.
Today’s sunrise is at 7:53 a.m. and today’s sunset is at 5:39 p.m.
Snow does develop, but probably not until midnight or after – roads should still be fine tonight if you need to go out. Lowest values in the upper 20s (-2 degrees Celsius).
We will continue grinding snow on Tuesday. As for the buildup, it seems the more rugged snow can now fall right over the central heart of our area – 2 to 4 inches is likely, with less to the south as you near the state line.

The first series of newsletters will be held in collaboration with one of the leading climate experts in the US – Dr. Jonathan Overpeck, Samuel A. Graham Dean, and William B. Stapp, college professors of environmental education at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan.
Often we think of climate change as something that will happen in many years. But that is no longer the case. Climate change is happening right now and its effects can be seen across Michigan.

New COVID-19 cases have plateaued and deaths are starting to slow down. Tests were stable with an average of more than 40,000 diagnostic tests per day, with the 7-day average positive rate being less than 7%. Hospital stays have continued to decline in recent weeks.
Michigan’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 1,791 on Saturday, the lowest since October. The 7-day average death rate on Saturday was 74. The state’s death rate is 2.6%. The state is also reporting “active cases,” which were listed at 70,700 on Saturday – the lowest level since November.

More than 24.9 million cases have been reported in the US, with more than 415,700 deaths reported from the virus as of Jan. 23, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Globally, more than 98.4 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 2.1 million died on January 23, according to Johns Hopkins University. More than 51 million have recovered. The real numbers are certainly much higher due to limited testing, different ways nations count the dead, and deliberate underreporting by some governments.
