Hot & Humid Today

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 10

We are now taking our first steps into the summer solstice with the sun at its highest point in the sky one would expect to see our hottest weather upcoming through the next month or so.  Today will be no exception as we may close in on another 90° day with dewpoint values in the mid-60s.

Our last measurable rain was nine days ago and we have hopes that will be rectified with passing showers and storms later this afternoon and overnight.  Rain chances are 60% this afternoon and 70% overnight.  Rainfall totals are predicted to be .25 to .50 unless you get under a storm where the amount could be more.  You can check out the Point Forecasts on the main page for local forecasts.


Here is the hazardous weather outlook from the NWS:

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms may develop today and tonight. Lightning
strikes and locally heavy downpours are expected where storms
occur. Severe weather is not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Scattered thunderstorms are possible Tuesday in mid-Michigan.
Thunderstorms are again possible across the area Friday and
Saturday.

Well, that was a nice Summer…for the Southern Arctic. We’ve already begun the process of rolling North, with nothing but cold, snow, and various winter forecasts on the way, as soon as possible :/

Always a good idea to keep an eye open for “winterizing” items going on sale next week.

Currently it is clear and 63 here. The overnight low was 59 that means that the AC did not have to do any work overnight. The official high at Grand Rapids yesterday was a pleasant 84. With a nice breeze and some clouds. 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.

Another steamer of a day coming. Hope we actually get some rain soon because all these hot and sunny days have dried everything out dramatically since just a few weeks ago.
