Red Flag Warnings continue in the upper lower peninsula of the state. […]

Omega Block Continues

The Omega block continues to bring warm dry weather to the area, I wonder if we are in the desert southwest with continuous sun and low dewpoints.  this has made it hard for mets to create any excitement in the endless reruns of their forecasts.  Dry weather will continue through Friday, with the next chance […]


The keyword for today is hazy, though not the kind due to humidity. Dry weather will likely prevail through the coming work week, with the next chance of measurable rainfall not until next weekend.

Slight Chance of Rain – Weather History

Our irises are in full bloom, and we have a large amount of wild flox in the woods surrounding our house.  These are very aromatic flowers, the sweet smell is almost overpowering. We have had only a quarter inch of rain in the past 24 days so it is surprising they are doing so well […]

Memorial Day Forecast – 1947 Snowstorm

Unofficially considered the start of summer, Memorial Day weekend often is celebrated with gatherings and barbecues, cookouts, and even long-weekend getaways. But Memorial Day is meant to be a day of tribute – not to grills and beers – but to honor the dead. Specifically, those who died while serving in the U.S. military. American […]
