We finally had some rain overnight (.30 of an inch) which we haven’t seen in 10 days which was quite a stretch of sunny and warm days.
From Slim yesterday:
Talking about the clouds with 61% of possible sunshine yesterday was the cloudiest day since June 11th (note the average amount of possible sunshine in June here at Grand Rapids is 62%) But since June 11th Grand Rapids has had a whopping 96% of possible sunshine. That includes 3 days at 100% 3 days at 99% 1 day at 97% 1 day at 96%. I guess you could say we have dried out nicely in the last 10 days.
As I said we had .30 of an inch overnight which brings our local total to 2.10 inches for the month. Looking at long-range forecasts we have close to a 70% chance of above-normal temps with near equal chances of above, near or below-normal precipitation to close out June into the first week of July.
Another thing we haven’t seen in our stretch of nearly windless days is a Beach Hazards Statement from the NWS which covers all the lakeshore counties from Ludington to St Joseph for waves 4 to 7 feet.
