Snow Day Rituals

If you’re hoping for a snow day, you can try some popular snow day rituals to increase your chances. Some of these rituals include wearing your pajamas inside out, brushing your teeth with the opposite hand, flushing at least six ice cubes down the toilet, sleeping with a spoon under your pillow, and leaving ice cubes on the porch. While there’s no scientific proof that these rituals work, they’re worth a try if you’re hoping for a day off.

Snowfall Totals in Mid-Michigan

The snowfall totals on Wednesday ranged from more than 7 inches around Metro Detroit to around 2 inches in the Great Lakes Bay Region. Bishop International Airport in Flint reported 2.5 inches at 4 p.m. on Wednesday as snow continued falling. Columbiaville and Ortonville both picked up about 3.5 inches of snow by Wednesday afternoon, and continued snowfall into Wednesday evening will drive totals a bit higher.

Weather Outlook

Low temperatures on Wednesday night will fall to the upper 20s to around 30 degrees. Thursday will be cloudy with afternoon temperatures from the upper 20s to low 30s. Some flurries are possible from time to time during the day Thursday. Another weak clipper will push into Mid-Michigan late Friday, bringing a little more snow. Then, there’s another chance for accumulating snow on Saturday into Sunday. Colder temperatures are on tap for this weekend and next week.
