The weekend snowstorm was felt particularly hard in Millington and Fostoria in southern Tuscola County, said a National Weather Service meteorologist who predicts below-zero wind chill factors around the county tonight and on Thursday and Friday nights.
In addition, about two inches of snow could accumulate in the area Friday night and Saturday, said Dave Kook, meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Oakland County’s White Lake Township.
Kook calls for a wind chill factor — the combined effect of wind and cold temperatures on exposed skin — of about minus 13 degrees tonight, and about minus 3 degrees on Thursday night.
High temperature in the Tuscola County area will reach about 12 degrees Thursday and about 16 degrees Friday, Kook said.
The weekend storm that began Saturday and continued through Sunday night dropped 7.5 inches of snow on Vassar, 7 inches on Caro and 6.4 inches on Cass City, Kook said.
Kook said meteorologists didn’t receive reports from Millington, Mayville and Fostoria, but noted “it’s likely the southern end of the county probably got closer to nine inches of snow” during the weekend storm.
