Here we are finishing out the month of September (already). Yesterday we stayed in the 50s most of the day – it began warming into the low 60s after the sun set. We had a long term rain event which dropped another 1.55 inches in Otsego bringing our total for the month to 7.04 inches.
We have a line of showers moving through once again this morning which will add to the total though not as much as seen as yesterday.
The big story is the cold remains in the northwest in the northern Rockies with record or near record snowfall and low temps.Below are the current snowfall amounts for Montana and Idaho into NW Wyoming.
Heat and humidity will build back in over the Great Lakes bringing us summer-like weather once again through tomorrow. High temps will be in the upper 70s to low 80s with dewpoints in the low 70s by later this afternoon. Low temps tonight will be in the mid to upper 60s.
Definitely a return to a summer like pattern though it will not last long. Fall will return by Thursday with the chance of lake effect rain showers. The latest from the CPC has flip flopped back to a chance of above normal temps through mid October. Normal highs for SW Michigan are in the mid 60s and lows in the low to mid 40s. I am not seeing any 80s for October at this point – above normal would put us in the upper sixties to low 70s for highs and lows in the upper 40s – low 70s look to be few if any… we will have to wait and see how this all plays out….
