We had another day in the mid 90s yesterday. I had three of my thermometers break the 100° mark, all in the shade – we tend to hold the heat down here in the valley. My wife loves this weather. I do to a point but I start withering when the temps get above 80°. I used to be able to spend the whole day in the heat but as I become older I have become heat intolerant.
A weak area of high pressure over Michigan will act to keep the weather very warm for the area. A few storms could develop in the afternoon or evening…mainly to the southwest of Grand Rapids.This high pressure system will build northeast on Wednesday allowing the remnants of Alberto to track in from the south. Thus a wet period will occur for the region Wednesday into Thursday.
We really need the rain – there is a window for possible severe weather later Wednesday afternoon into the evening with an elevated risk for a tornado being the main potential hazard.
Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm today, with highs in the mid 80s to low 90s. Thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening, mainly south and west of a line from Battle Creek to Grand Rapids to Whitehall. Storms may be strong. Rain becomes widespread Wednesday as tropical moisture arrives. Thunderstorms Wednesday may produce very heavy rainfall, and possibly severe weather.
Rainfall predictions are all over the place – from .75 to near 2 inches this is all dependent on storm development and the track of Alberto. Stay tuned….
