The main issue with this portion of the forecast will be the potent
winter storm that will be taking shape over the area sunday evening
and continuing into monday. The first "cycle" of this storm is now
underway over the high plains due to strong shortwave/jet energy
wrapping north up the front side of the mean upper low. A similar
scenario is expected for this area sunday night as the upper low
progresses into the mid mississippi/ohio valley and another strong
jet streak pinwheels around the upper low...leading to a deepening
system as it begins to affect southeast michigan. The system will
also be phasing with northern stream jet energy that will be in the
process of digging into the base of the overall upper trough.

At this time...it appears very likely that much of the area will
received moderate to heavy precipitation from this system...with
some of that precipitation in the form of snow. This is a very
dynamic system...and model soundings suggest embedded convective
elements to enhance local snowfall amounts. Given the available
moisture...this will provide a wide precipitation shield without a
doubt.

In fact...current model solutions would suggest a majority of the
precipitation from the m 59 corridor north will be wet snow...with
just several hours of rain/snow mix to start the event early sunday
evening. Further south...rain will transition to rain/snow and
eventually all snow. However...the heaviest precipitation...from
03z-09z...will favor a significant period with little/no snow
accumulation from i 94 south. This low level thermal gradient that
exists more on the synoptic level will likely be enhanced by the
slightly higher terrain from the northern suburbs of metro detroit
southwest to ann arbor and points west. So...areas along/northwest
of this line will tend to have more snow...with the boundary layer
remaining in the middle 30s from areas around lake st clair on into
monroe/lenawee counties.

Given this general expected scenario...feel a winter storm watch is
warranted for much of the area. Will leave monroe/lenawee counties
out given the expected rainfall to start the event...and will also
leave wayne county out...although this is a much closer call as the
snow accumulations may very well range from an inch or two down
river to 4 or 5 around canton/livonia.

With a mean upper trough becoming established over the northeast
conus in the wake of this system...the overall weather pattern will
then remain cool for april. In fact...immediately behind the system
the temperatures will be downright cold with the expected snow that
is expected to be on the ground. Another decent system will be back
into the vicinity by around friday...and temperatures would suggest
precipitation will be a rain/snow mix...or just straight snow. At
this time...the north/south orientation remains in question. Trends
since yesterday keep the heaviest precipitation south of the area
due to size of the upper trough that develops in response to the
first storm system...so will downplay its significance attm.

My thoughts exactly. I just got the leaf loader mounted to the dump trailer, got the new (used) HastyVac mounted to the second rider... I dont feel like unhooking the trailers and putting the salter and plow on. Oh well. I need to get rid of some salt!
