The UP and western side of the state (by Lake Michigan) get the most snow.

I live in Manistee and typically don't see as much snow as north of me in Benzie County. But if the winds are Northerly then we get hit with a lot more lake effect. The west side of the LP is a snowbelt but there are areas that see more depending on wind direction.

My dad lived in Syracuse as a small kid and can remember the massive amounts of snow they would get. He was one of 8 eight kids and I guess they used to build epic snowforts

I was in Marquette all last week and the weather was pretty decent for November in upper Michigan, no rain or snow until Saturday.

Cold as heck though.

I guess it's true what they say about your blood thinning when you move to a warmer climate.

In my 52 years, minus 4 in AK, I have never seen such a slow start to winter, that's if you can call it that, not even a short cold snap yet.

US National Weather Service Gaylord Michigan

Low pressure will lift through the eastern Great Lakes Tuesday through Wednesday. This system will bring a round of rain and snow to portions of northeast lower Michigan Tuesday and Tuesday Night, while creating windy conditions for all of northern Michigan. Most of Wednesday and Wednesday Night look quiet, with another round of rain and snow possible again on Thursday. (Please visit NWS Gaylord, MI Homepage for more information.)

I love winter and snow as much as anyone, but maybe these later starting winters will keep a few people from screaming...running for the warmer states. I have a feeling once it does start snowing and blowing..its not gonna let up for a while. I know its coming...but I want a white Christmas with a ton of snow!

...winter storm watch in effect from this evening through
wednesday morning...

The national weather service in detroit/pontiac has issued a
winter storm watch...which is in effect from this evening through
wednesday morning.

Hazardous weather...

* rain changing to wet snow by early evening. Snow
tonight...possibly heavy at times...with total snowfall
accumulations of 3 to 5 inches across much of the watch area.
Six inches or slightly more is not out of the question if
precipitation changes to snow by late afternoon. Keep in
mind...those higher accumulations will be confined to elevated
and grassy surfaces.
