Cool & Sunny

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 23

Today is the last day of meteorological spring which will end on a cool and sunny note.  We end May with 6.25 inches of rain most of which fell the second half of the month.  We had 12.81 inches for March, April, and May making this a wetter than normal spring.  (these are Otsego totals).

Looking forward to June we have equal chances of above, near or below normal temps and precip.


The frost advisory for areas north of I96 expires at 8 am this morning.  We have 42° here at 5 am.

I have my tomatoes, peppers and cucumber plants in the ground as well as onions.  Actually I have some green onions ready to harvest which I left in the ground last fall for late spring, early summer eating.  They are hardy and can stand the light frosts we had.

We will enjoy another sunny day today with cool pleasant temps with almost a duplicate for Monday which will be slightly warmer.  Chances of rain increase tomorrow night as do temps beginning Tuesday as we approach the 80° mark once again.


Finally we have the pollen count for SW Michigan:

Boy, perfect day for the open house! Weather couldn’t have been any better. It was HOT out in the sun and we all got fried, but everything worked out awesome. Very unique having a drive through celebration.

I wouldn’t say it gets better after the solstice. Since temps lag by about 4 weeks that means the highest average temps are well after the solstice.

At Grand Rapids the warmest averages H/L start on July 3rd with the average H/L of 83/62 they stay at 83/62 until July 21st with the high stays at 83 but the low is 63 and 83/63 are the average to July 25th when it becomes 83/62 again. Then on July 27 the average H/L starts its downward trend.

I watched the goings not only downtown GR but across the country the last few nights and I will agree with MV I also have sadness and anger as well. The sadness is in what is happening and the anger in directed on what is happening in the streets all across the US. When so many people (and I know it not the majority of people that are rioting) the rioters (yes I said rioters) have to understand that they are now becoming the problem. I seen both here in Grand Rapids and all across the country way too many… Read more »

I know that we’re not supposed to talk politics, but I think it’s safe to say we all should pray for peace, love, and unity. We are in the midst of some crazy times right now.

I feel the situation has become out of hand. I have heard that today there is a planned (protest) in Lansing I would hope that it will not turn out last the ones across the country the last 5 days.

Good luck and have fun today! Back in our day (class of ‘88 🤘), it was not uncommon to open house hop because most had beer. Ah, the good old days.

Yup, I was in the same graduating class (‘88). Things were a bit different then, but we sure had fun!

Congrats on your daughters graduation and open house.
