After a warm week last week we will be entering a wet and cooler pattern. Still for the most part this week will be slightly above normal temperature wise. The main theme for today and tonight will be the rain – it won’t be a pleasant day for outdoor activities.
We have a cold front to our west with a surface low riding up the front – which will the cause the rain to increase late this afternoon and overnight. At this point it still seems the heaviest rains will fall between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids – we already have a third of an inch in Otsego this morning with expectation of another inch or two on top of that. The amazing thing is the temp is at 68° at 6am which is close to our average high for this time of year.
After a couple calm days we will see another system move in for Wednesday which will bring more rain and perhaps a few storms – then we will see temps fall into the mid 60s for Thursday.
Warm weather will return next weekend with high temp guesses in the 80s once again with the pattern going zonal from the Pacific rather than from our friends in Canada.
On a side note – as I expected the Wolverines had a bad day against the Badgers – final score was 35-14. However, the Wolverines did score two touchdowns. The Badgers had scored 110 points their first two games holding their opponents scoreless. The Spartans won their game 31-10.
