Nicer Weather Ahead

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 13

All the trees are leaved and the grass is nice and green especially for those of us who use fertilizer.  Of course it makes us have to mow  more often with all the rain which has fallen.  We have had 4.94 inches so far this month here in Otsego – these are from the ‘official’ readings from my CoCoRaHS rain gauge.  My station is B5VNS – you can find Michigan precipitation reports at https://www.cocorahs.org/ViewData/ListDailyPrecipReports.aspx.  The county reports can be found by changing the fields under location.

We have another wet weekend coming up which seems to be the normal for us this month.  We have some light drizzle in the area this morning with some heavier showers in Kalamazoo County moving to the northeast.  This will all end later this morning  and hopefully we will see some sun peek out this afternoon.  Wednesday and Thursday are promising to be our nicest days with partly cloudy skies with highs in the 70s tomorrow and rising into the 80s on Thursday before more rain moves in late Friday.

A low pressure system moving into the northern Great Lakes region will bring potential for a few showers and thunderstorms Friday night through Saturday into Sunday. However precipitation will be scattered and most of the holiday weekend will be dry and warm and fairly humid.

Rather mild and fairly humid weather will continue on Memorial Day into early next week. The tropical system over the Gulf Coast region this weekend could potentially bring subtropical moisture up into our region for the mid to latter portion of next week.
