It sure was a beautiful Sunday in southeast Michigan.

You may have spent the day outside cleaning up the messy yard and wondered when yard waste pick up starts in Huron Township.

Waste Management will begin yard waste pick up on April 1 and it will run though the last week of November 2020.

Yard waste pick up is weather permitting, so if you have a lot to collect and get rid of, you should hope for the best forecasts as we head closer to spring.

March is making a welcomed entry.

As we inch toward spring and say farewell to February, the first week of March doesn’t look too bad.

After a rainy Monday, it looks like a lot of sun and more spring-like temperatures are in the forecast.

Snow, cold temps will cause roads to become slick Wednesday evening


Posted by The Huron Hub on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2020 — 5:00 PM

The snow is picking up as we head into the evening hours.

Southeast Michigan remains under a winter weather advisory until midnight.

Here is a special weather statement from the National Weather Service in Detroit with more info:

Issued by National Weather Service
Detroit, MI
4:15 PM EST Wed, Feb 26, 2020

…Winter Weather Advisory in Effect…

Increasing northerly winds is drawing colder air into the region, causing temperatures to fall through the 20s. This along with falling snow is allowing snow to more effectively stick to road surfaces. Light to occasionally moderate snow will persist through the evening rush. Snowfall rates may reach a half inch per hour. between 4 PM and 8 PM around an inch or two additional snow accumulation is expected. Drivers will need to use caution this evening as road conditions continue to deteriorate.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for southeast Michigan.

The watch is active from late Tuesday night through late Wednesday night.

4 to 8 inches of snow is forecasted for southeast Michigan.

The NWS says the exact location of the heaviest snow across southeast Michigan still carries some uncertainty at this time.

There is likely to be minor adjustments made to forecast total snow over the next 24 hours, forecasters said.

Travel, especially on Wednesday, could be hazardous during the morning and evening commutes.

After a beautiful weekend (especially Sunday where temperatures reached into the 50s) it looks like Michigan’s spring tease is over.

Winter returns this week with snow and cold temps.

So far, forecasters are not able to pin down the exact path of Tuesday’s snow event and which areas of the state will get hit the hardest.
