Climate Normals

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 6

This is a chart of climate normals for Otsego with month to date and year to date rainfall totals.  Yesterday we managed another 1.45 inches of rain which brings us up to 3.04 for the month which brings us to above normal.

South Haven is reporting 1.48, Paw Paw .64, Wyoming .81, Kentwood .78,  Grandville .61, and Lowell .25.  These are all reports from CoCoRaHS at 7am.

Our normal temperatures hold to near 80° for daytime highs through the rest of the meteorological summer.  We could see temperatures slightly below normal for the rest of the month.  The CPC is guessing slightly above normal temperatures for August (a 33 to 40% chance).  The CPC maps are on the Atmospheric Condition page so I won’t post them here.

Our slow moving storm system will continue to sink to the southeast through the day today. This will allow for scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms to continue into this afternoon.

Highs will mostly be between 75 and 80. Tonight we will see see mostly cloudy skies and only a slight chance of showers. Those showers, if they happen would be from the moisture from the east coast system that may be pulled as far back as west Michigan tonight. This will result in holding the cloud cover in the area into Tuesday morning before a cold front comes through and clears it all away.

With more sunshine it will actually be warmer in the afternoon behind the cold front than ahead of it. Highs should be in the mid 80s Tuesday and Wednesday. Another stronger cold front comes through late Wednesday or early Thursday. There only a low chance of showers with passage of that cold front. Expect mostly sunny skies and slightly cooler weather Friday and Saturday.

There was a beautiful sunset to the west just as a few sprinkles fell. Looked for a rainbow but there wasn’t one. The sunset was so bright tonight.
