Another Pleasant Day

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 15

Pleasant is a relative term in regards to late fall weather.  I was crawling around my roof yesterday putting up the Christmas lights and cleaning the gutters.  We had very little wind and the temp on the roof was probably over 50° with the sun shining on it – I ended up taking my coat off…

We count these 40+ degree days as a blessing in late November as we know they will be short lived as cold air sneaks in from the north and snow isn’t far away.  I love living in the northern states as we have actual seasons here though sometimes it is only summer and winter some years.  I could never live down south where snow can be rare and summer heat is great for alligators and insects.

Our main theme this fall has been the rain and winds causing beach erosion.  Every time I hear the reports of houses falling off the dunes of Lake Michigan I am reminded of Christs sermon on the mount.  It is a metaphorical speech but it makes sense as the climate is ever changing we have to look ahead to the distant future  before we build. This can be especially true when people build their beach houses on the Atlantic coast which is prone to hurricanes.

Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.
Matthew 7:24–27

Our quiet weather will be in place once again today and a good chunk of tomorrow before the rain moves in once again – Wednesday will be windy with top winds gusting over 50 mph and possibly higher over Lake Michigan and along the coast thus the lakeshore flood watch.

Thanksgiving looks to be a quiet day with partly sunny skies and highs around 40°.  The coming weekend we are looking at another slow moving storm system moving through bringing rain and snow showers.

What a pattern 9 out of 11 months with below normal temps and the cpc predicts more of same for December! Also most of the weather experts are predicting above normal snowfall for west MI! How is this possible? Bring on a great winter season!

Another week, no snow and 50 degrees.

Last November, GR received 14.4″ of snow, so we will surely be much less than that this year.

I agree it’s a great day for getting those lights up. The weather ios going to be changing this weekend.

So far this November there has been 6.5″ of snow fall at Grand Rapids. If the month ends at that 6.5″ it would mean that in recorded history there have been 45 Novembers with more snow fall BUT there have also been 77 Novembers with more snow fall. That 6.5″ is very near average for the month.
