Dry Pattern Continues

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 6

Our dry pattern will continue through most of this week though we will have a few spotty chances of rain tomorrow night and Wednesday it the chances are very low.  Our greater chance will come Friday when the second cold front comes into the area – not a drought buster but it may brings our totals up a bit for the month.  We have had .56 of an inch here in Otsego at the station.  A lot of leaves are falling off the trees, most without changing color any rain will knock off a lot more – a dismal fall indeed for the color lovers.

I don’t think we will see any more 90s this year though I think we could see a couple shots of near 80° in the long term according to the GFS model below.  We could see our driest month of the year with many areas seeing less than and inch of rain by the end of September.   Friday and Saturday  the areas along Lake Michigan will see additional rainfall due to lake effect.

 


We have three tropical storms – Maria which is a cat 1 hurricane is expected to move well off the Atlantic seaboard though there are some tropical storm watches and warnings off the coast through Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.  Lee is well into the Atlantic and isn’t going to make landfall and Pillar is off the west coast of Mexico.

With the much lower DP’s in the 50’s today it did not feel too bad on my walk in fact it almost felt comfortable. I will add this to the blog several times in the next several days but here… Read more »

GR, Lansing, and Flint are all at 90 degrees currently. It’s funny how everyone said a month ago that our summer was going to end up below average in the number of 90 degree days. And now it’s just the opposite.

The Record high for today is 90° set in 1920 lest’s see if we can break this record.
