Welcome Back to October

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 27

We will be ‘enjoying’ fall-like weather today.  As Mr. Negative would say “living in the southern fringes of the Arctic our expectations of a normal summer are anything but normal”.

We can have cool wet days in the summer however they generally are few and far between.  We aren’t actually in summer yet as it is on the 21st.  The 90° heat remains out on the west coast, which is fine by me.  The 70s are tolerable to work and play in.  I used to work in a paper mill in the 1970s which is hot anytime of the year, when the weather outside is stifling it is intolerable inside.

Those who live on the Lake Michigan coastline probably are wondering if they will be able to enjoy their highly taxed properties this year, especially when the lake waters are only fit for polar bears, seals and walruses.  Below is the current Great Lakes water temps which remain in the 40s and 50s with the exception of Lake Erie.  Inland lakes are warming slowly – I imagine Gun Lake is the place to go as it is shallow and warms quickly in the summer.


Yesterday I saw people out on the piers fishing, not today though as there are gale warnings and lakeshore flood advisories.  Below are the GLERL webcams at South Haven yesterday and today.


...LAKESHORE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS
EVENING...

* LAKESHORE FLOODING...The combination of high water levels,
  northwest winds gusting up to 40 mph, and waves of 5 to 10 feet
  will lead to lakeshore flooding and beach erosion. The highest
  waves will be south of Grand Haven.

* IMPACTS...Potential for property damage. Water forced into the
  channels between pier heads may create the risk of flooding in
  port towns along the river channel edges. Waves may completely
  submerge pier decks at times. Northwest facing areas will be
  most susceptible to flooding and beach erosion.

* SWIM HAZARDS...Beaches from St. Joseph to Manistee. Beaches
  with particularly dangerous conditions include North Beach in
  South Haven, Holland State Park, Muskegon State Park, Mears
  State Park in Pentwater and Stearns Park in Ludington.

Sun is now out and temps are in the 60s, should be a perfect evening for our ball games. That’s the great thing about longer days this time of year, half the day can be a washout, but by the time you’re done with work it’s a perfect afternoon.

Maybe you like sleeping in a stuffy house set at 80, we do not. I’m in the heat all day everyday at work and it is miserable at times. 62 degrees at night is the perfect sleeping temperature. Some day you’ll realize not everyone enjoys the same crap as you. Yes there really are different opinions in the world. Wake up.

Just over another half inch of rain here, just what we don’t need. Dew point in the mid 50s means we still have our ac on just to dry the air out. That and there would be a rebellion by everyone in the house if it wasn’t on during the night. No good sleeping in muggy, damp air.

“Multiple days with highs in the 60’s” has now become only one day and then it’s back to the 70’s. I love it!

Today could be the coldest June 13rh ever in Grand Rapids Michigan on record…Over 80 Days now since I have had a fan or air-conditioning on out at thee YARDofBRICKS amazing cool run we are having who would of thought?? Have a super duper warm and wet Thursday ..INDY!

Here at Grand Rapids (and many other locations) 7 of the last 8 months have been seen temperatures below average. And the start of 2019 has see 5 months in a row of below average temperatures with a good chance that June will be the 6th in a row. As far as I can find that last time we started a year with 5 or more below average temperatures was in 2003, That year the only August, November and December were above average. So far I have recorded 0.61″ of rain today and the temperature here is 55.
