Scattered Storms Today

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 7

We have a warm 69° at 4am this morning with very little rain overnight.  Humidity levels are ramping up and our possibility of rain and storms increase this afternoon ‘if’ we should see any sun and instability in the atmosphere.

The limiting factor however is poor mid level lapse rates, which look better over Wisconsin.  A lapse rate is the rate of temperature change with height. The faster the temperature decreases with height, the “steeper” the lapse rate and the more “unstable” the atmosphere becomes.

Sometimes it is safer to cry wolf during days such as this to prepare for the worse however it may or may not be as bad as it looked yesterday.  We may just end up seeing a few showers and the flood watch may be lifted, or not – there are many times when it is a crap shoot in predicting the weather and time will tell.

What a perfect weekend! Lots of sun and temps around 80 or just above. We continue to have some of the best weather in the country. But, of course, people will still find a way to complain.

We did not receive a lot of rain last night only 0.24″ here at my house. Finally a nice warm summer like night with a good touch of humidly in the air and a overnight low of just 67 here at my house and 68 at the airport. I know there are a few people who do not like it this humid but I love it with temperatures in the 65 to 85° range and somewhat humid. Even with yesterdays official high of 82 and low of 56 GR was still below average for the day and is still -3.0… Read more »

That’s some thick air out there this morning. Felt terrible coming in to work at 5 already, going to be a miserable day working. I was hoping we could make it through June without air like this.
