Storm Chances This Week

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 18

We have a cool morning to start out the month of June.  This is the first day of meteorological summer which is starting with a cool morning of 42°.  We will creep up into the low 70s today with the 80s on the near horizon.  Tomorrow summer temps will return to the 80s for those of you who like the hot weather.  Low 80s will be in the picture all week.

Rain chances are small for this evening and tonight.  We have a better chance of rain and storms for tomorrow night:

We will be in the marginal risk area for storms with an enhanced risk to our west.

The NWS gives us a 60% chance of rain for tonight and 50% for tomorrow night, which is confusing to me since they say we have a better chance for tomorrow night.  I would put the rain chances for tonight at around 10% and 50/50 for tomorrow night.

It is also 96 in Mitchell, SD the home of the corn palace. If anyone is in that area it is a fun stop for a break.

We’re free!!! With all these violent protests, the coronavirus has seemingly been cancelled by the media and politicians.

Well the we do not have to worry about the 2nd wave. We are still in the first wave. As it HAS not gone away. But that is OK by November the US is on tract to have around 190,000 to 225,000 deaths by the coronavirus! Current number is 106,848 and counting. That is good for the 7th leading cause of death for a whole year in just 3 months.

The open everything crowd could care less about all the death in our country right now! They want to go for a quarter of a million deaths just so they can get a haircut or go to a gym! Totally selfish and ignorant!

Will you be positing the same thing everyday for the next 3-4 months of glorious summer weather? Just wondering. I wish this blog had an ignore button for those that don’t add anything relevant to the conversation.

Late yesterday Indy and Barry made a comment on when the warmest average temperatures for here in Grand Rapids. On average the month of July is the warmest here in GR and the warmest period covers much of the month.
At Grand Rapids the warmest averages H/L start on July 3rd with the average H/L of 83/62 they stay at 83/62 until July 21st with the high stays at 83 but the low is 63 and 83/63 are the average to July 25th when it becomes 83/62 again. Then on July 27 the average H/L starts its downward trend.

I’ve noticed before that there are some who think the solstice is the high point of our average temps. Your stats show that is not the case.

Temperatures seem to really lag the max and min points of sun intensity here in Michigan. We had snow in May, nearly 5 months after the darkest day of the year. I also remember highs in the 80s in October, 4 months after the sunniest day. However, I believe I remember Bill mentioning that early season heatwaves are the deadliest, when the sun is the strongest and people are less adept to the warm weather. Also I haven’t commented on the blog for a while, and I know we should try avoid talking about the pandemic, but I just wanted… Read more »

May ended only -2 degrees below average. It also saw 64% of total sunshine – making it our sunniest May since 2016. Through the first 5 months of 2020, temperatures are above average, and we remain on track for our 4th straight warm year.

May was -1.0 here. April was -3.5 and March was +3.9. So in reality, meteorological spring was less than one degree (-0.6) from average. As such, it was really just average. The only thing truly remarkable was the precipitation in May (6.05″), which was well above average.
