Snow For Halloween?

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 1

Made a few changes to the Forecast Page for faster loading and to take care of some background script issues.  That is the problem of being a one man band in regards to keeping the site running; when something starts going wrong I have to do a lot of debugging myself.

I talked to some Cub Scouts yesterday selling popcorn at Harding’s Market as a fund raiser.  I told them I was in the Cubs back in the early 60s – I was surprised at all the questions about what it was like back then, like what dinosaurs really looked like and how it feels to be older than dirt (just kidding).  I am happy to see the Boy scouts still active in our area.

The reality of cooler temperatures are soon to be upon us – one more day in the 70s, probably until next spring, then the descent to the 40s and 50s after Monday.  It will be a wet and unsettled weather pattern this week into next – maybe some snow in the forecast (looking at the GFS models) for Halloween into the first week of November.

Keep in mind the ground is still warm but I believe we will see a few chances of frost coming up this week especially north of Grand Rapids and in low lying areas of the south and by the weekend I see a wide spread frost over the state.  Any snow we get would be short lived as the temps will moderate back into the 50s after a quick cold shot.
