Sure was a warm one yesterday. We had a high temp of a very unseasonal 84° here in Otsego. Today will be more tolerable with highs around 70° with scattered rain showers. We received .11 of an inch of rain this morning by 6 am with hopes of more on the way.
The dogs and cats pretty much just lay around yesterday they weren’t their usual playful selves. I don’t have the air conditioning on yet, I generally try to wait until closer to Memorial Day. I lived without air conditioning for the first 40 years of my life and I somehow survived. Being in my 60s now I look at it as a thing of comfort for both man and beast.
We will see cooler temps this week – Weak weather systems will create a daily risk of showers through midweek, but unfortunately, most areas will see only light rainfall amounts. High temperatures on Monday will be around 70, then between 55 and 60 for the rest of the week.
This is the SPC forecast for today – we are under the general thunderstorm outlook with the marginal nosing into the SW corner of the state.
- Low pressure moves along cold front bringing rain and thunder chances into Tuesday Showers are expected to continue today along a warm/stationary front aligned across our northern forecast area, while the rain associated with a southern stream low impinges on the southern zones. Th low moves east later today but another surface low forms along the cold front as a shortwave trough approaches from the west. Showers and some embedded thunderstorms will move in tonight and Tuesday then come to an end Tuesday night. - Upper troughing and cooler than normal temps after Tuesday with frost/freeze potential Trend to cooler temperatures on Wednesday into the weekend with frost and freeze potential as Canadian sfc high builds in. Some light precipitation is possible Thursday into Friday as a weak northern stream shortwave moves through with a reinforcing shot of cold air for the end of the week.
