The End of Summer

Today is the last day of ‘official’ summer.  Tomorrow Autumn begins at 2:49 a.m.  Astronomically, the September equinox is the autumnal, or fall equinox marking the end of summer and the beginning of fall (autumn).

Another Warm Day

Yesterday we reached 79° which we will meet or exceed today depending on the cloud cover from a weak low pressure system meandering to our south.  Chances of rain look slim at best for southwest Michigan, perhaps around 20% mainly south of Grand Rapids.  Our above-normal temperatures around 80° will persist through Saturday with little […]

Response, NWS GR, NOAA (NCEI)

There has been some discussion as to “why” Grand Rapids has been cooler compared to average in the last couple of years. One comparison is between Grand Rapids and Lansing. I know that Lansing in the past has been cooler than they are now. It looks like they moved the sensor location from a “colder […]

Hurricane Lee

As many of you know I used to live in the great state of Maine in the 70s where we would get great snowmaking noreasters in the winter.  Today hurricane Lee is predicted to move towards the state on its journey into far eastern Canada. Our weather will be much tamer. Milder weather can be […]
