High Wind Warnings

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 14

The theme for today will be the wind.  I have been up all night, I think I broke something in my foot and have been in pain all night.  So the theme for me will be sitting back with my foot up in the air watching it all from my window.  I dropped a heavy object on the large bunion on my left foot, not much fun.  I am afraid to go to the ER because of the rampant COVID cases.  My 93-year-old mother-in-law has been at Borgess for the past few days under observation from a fall she had.  The nurses told my wife she had to leave because no visitors we allowed in anymore – the hospital is on lockdown.  My sister-in-law told me Walmart has sheriff deputies posted making sure everyone wore a mask upon entry.  Strange world we live in now, but I am off topic and humbly ask for your forgiveness.  As the song goes “this is my party and I will cry if I want to” 🙂

We have a temp of 50° at 5 am and have had .47 of an inch of rain so far.  We are calm now but the winds will start to pick up again and the temps will begin to fall and wind gusts could get into the 50 mph range.

We can expect some snow showers later today though it won’t be too exciting as we are expecting only a tenth of an inch or so accumulation.

As promised I have added two new pages containing GOES and SAT images for your viewing pleasure.

Another individuals political opinion on a weather blog. Delete please.

Very sad that Thanksgiving & Christmas are cancelled this year. Just feeling really bad for all of the people that will lose their businesses and jobs. Gonna be a dark, dark winter.

My aunt was in a similar spot a week or so ago MV. She’s in her 80’s and twisted her foot bad but didn’t dare go into the hospital because of the virus. Of course she told no one about it then after a week drove herself down there to find out she had indeed broken her foot. Had to call for a ride home. Crazy times.

The temperature is now down to 45. There is light rain and it is windy.

It’s always fun to look at this website on a day like today:

Miserable opening day for firearm season.

Yes it is. I wonder just how many go hunting now days. When I was young the woods up north were full of hunters not so sure if that is really the case now. In the late 50’s and well into the 60’s the roads heading north were back up on the day before hunting season.

Just had a lightning strike nearby. Loud. Rattled the windows.

Of course everyone should be wearing a mask out in public at all times! The scientific data is overwhelming, even though there are still some people that do not believe it! As for the weather, get ready for winter! It will be hitting with a vengeance in December! I can hardly wait!

I recorded 0.49″ of rain fall overnight. At this time it is cloudy with some light rain and a little wind with a temperature of 52. I might take a ride over to the lake later today it see the waves if the wind picks up.
