Cooler & Less Humid

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 24

Still a bit humid this morning with some fog around.  Temp is currently 66° at 7am.  We had .44 of an inch of rain yesterday half of it coming from a pulse storm which popped up.

There is a small chance of a shower or storm today mainly west of 131, however the air will start drying out and rain chances will decrease as we reach the night time hours.

We are entering an extended period of dry weather which will last into early next week.

To the left is the CPC outlook for August 6th to the 12th for SW Michigan – this would put us slightly below normal for the period temperature wise with equal chances of above/below/normal rainfall.

There are two tropical disturbances in the Atlantic which have a 10 to 20% chance of turning into a tropical depression or hurricane over the next week.

In the Eastern North Pacific we have Hurricane Erick whose path will pass south of the Hawaiian islands and tropical storm Flossie southeast of Erick.

I guess I will have to dig up some more educational materials to fill in some space on this blog with the quiet pattern we are entering….

Not much rain here at my house yesterday at all as just 0.04″ fell. Today is what one could call a Chamber of Commerce day. Lots of sun shine and warm temperatures,

Slim, where do we currently stand for the Summer season with regards to temperature departure from average? As in from June 21 through now? Or are records only kept for Met Summer? I’m guessing from the 21st we are above, and prob from June 1 as well?

Slim

OK here is what I came up with. From June 21st until July 29th Grand Rapids has had an average High of 84.9° and a average low of 64.7° that would give GR a mean of around 74.8° and that is above average. From June 1st to July 29th the average high would be 81.1 and the average low would be 61.2 giving GR a mean of around 71.2 so yes this summer at this point is running above average.

Well I don’t live at the airport either, but it’s the only official temps that count. Average lows are around 62, so you were still above average. We had a low of 67, but it doesn’t go in the record books anywhere. We’ve also had 10 90 degree days, but just like your house it doesn’t count. As for snow fall, yes, we were below normal towards the lakeshore in our area. And unlike you, I back it up with pics and hard evidence, not mindless ramblings.
