More Clouds Today – Rain Tomorrow

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 4

All in all our fall weather has been nice with temps in the 60s and 70s with a lot of sunny days but as with all good things it will end to our typical cool and wet pattern as we creep closer to mid-month.  Clouds will be around today leftovers from the remnants of Delta though we should see a few peeks of the sun from time to time.  Tomorrow may be our last day in the 70s though it will be accompanied by widespread rain which could bring half to over an inch of rain.

The CPC is calling for below-normal temps and above normal rainfall through at least the 24th, perhaps beyond – normal temps for SW Michigan would be around 58° for this period in SW Michigan and the low 50s for the U.P..  By Friday we will be struggling to reach 50°.

While I have had several frost the lowest here at my house so far had been 33. But that is not unusual. Here are the first official 32 dates at Grand Rapids since 2010
