August is birthday month in my family, we celebrated five of them yesterday for my stepson, myself and three of the grandkids. We still have a couple for grandkids towards the end of the month. We distanced six feet apart around my stepsons’ yard and watched everyone open their presents.
Last week was my oldest granddaughters graduation from high school, we couldn’t be present for that because they had a drive-through graduation to get her diploma. She wants to go on to school in veterinary medicine. Good lord, I am getting old. My mother-in-law has been able to see her great-grandkids grow up and graduate which is quite a feat in itself.
Temperatures have fallen the past several days along the Lake Michigan Shoreline as winds have predominantly been from the north and east. The winds have pushed away warmer water that formed in the shallow areas along the shore, and allowed colder water from deeper parts of the lake to take it’s place. We expect temperatures to drop further Monday and Tuesday as northeast winds prevail.
Here is Sunday’s rainfall through noon:
.SYNOPSIS... Issued at 328 AM EDT Mon Aug 3 2020 Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms can be expected today and Tuesday. Then high pressure builds in for the rest of the week with fair weather and comfortable temperatures. .DISCUSSION...(Today through next Sunday) Issued at 328 AM EDT Mon Aug 3 2020 ...Scattered Showers and a few Thunderstorms through Tuesday... A sharp upper trough axis extends south from a closed 500 mb low centered north of Lake Huron with vort lobes rotating through across Lower Michigan today into Tuesday. Lapse rates are steep enough for some thunder, especially during the diurnal enhancement in the afternoon. ...Stretch of fine summer weather into the weekend... Drier weather arrives by Wednesday as heights rise slightly and surface high pressure builds in. Looks like fine summer weather into the weekend with cool temperatures and low humidity as dew points will be in the 40s and 50s. Heights continue to rise with moderating temperatures over the weekend.
