   Mesoscale Discussion 0059
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0718 AM CST Mon Jan 28 2019

   Areas affected...Lower MI

   Concerning...Heavy snow 

   Valid 281318Z - 281715Z

   SUMMARY...Heavy snowfall with rates exceeding 1"/hr will continue
   across Lower MI for at least the next several hours.

   DISCUSSION...Heavy snow (i.e. +SN and 1/4 mi visibility) has been
   reported at sites over central Lower MI during the past two hours
   with moderate snow reported across the remainder of the region.
   Strong low to mid-level frontogenesis is expected to persist for the
   next several hours while gradually shifting northeastward. As a
   result, the potential for heavy snowfall will continue for most of
   Lower MI for at least the next several hours. The heaviest snowfall
   (with rates exceeding 1"/hr) is expected to shift from central Lower
   MI into eastern portion of Lower MI around 15-16Z.
