Wild Wind & Weather on the Way Today

Wonder of the Wind by Mark Lindsay

mLive reports that some wild weather is on the way for Leelanau:

Most of us in Lower Michigan should have peak wind gusts between 45 mph and 55 mph. There could be an isolated wind gust just over 55 mph. The strongest gusts would likely be right along the Lake Michigan shoreline due to the wind accelerating over the Great Lakes water and on the eastern fringe of the Lower Peninsula.

…In Lower Michigan, there will be two snowfall patterns. Northwest Lower Michigan will have the changeover to snow just as the main precipitation area of the storm is winding down. Northwest Lower could have a couple of hours of meaningful snowfall. As a result, look for one to three inches of snow on the grass Monday night in northwest Lower. This would include Traverse City, Cadillac, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Gaylord and Mackinaw City.

You can click through for windspeed charts – it looks like they may top 50 so be sure to prep for possible power outages!

Mark took this photo way back in April of 2011 & writes:

As I stood in a Nature induced trance, on this beautiful beach, I realized I needed to be on my knees to witness such an incredible, physically moving force. Within a few seconds it turned into a very emotional event. Within that few seconds, I went from feeling real big, to realizing how small I really was. Everything was racing, but it felt as though time really did stand still, just for a moment though. Everything was loud, but it was so magically silent.
