Sunny & Cool

Today we expect a similar day with slightly cooler temperatures with highs in the upper 60s to near 70°.  Our next chance of rain comes on Thursday.

Weather History

1939: Tornadoes struck across southern Lower Michigan, including one that hit Kalamazoo County from near Schoolcraft to Austin Lake. A farmhouse lost its second floor and a mattress from the home was found over a mile away.

On June 10, 2020, a warm and very moist air mass was in place as the remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal had moved through the Great Lakes the prior evening. This provided the fuel for widespread severe storms not only for Lower Michigan but also northeast Indiana and all of Ohio as a strong trough moved in overhead. Numerous trees fell on homes in Flushing, Mount Morris, and Grosse Ile, and one person was injured in Saginaw when a large tree fell on their car.

On June 10, 1941, the overnight low dropped to a “freezing” 33 degrees in the city of Saginaw. This is the record low temperature for June in Saginaw and is tied by the low temperature recorded on June 8, 1949.

1752: It is believed that this was the day Benjamin Franklin narrowly missed electrocution while flying a kite during a thunderstorm to determine if lightning is related to electricity. Click HERE for more information from the History Channel.

1997: Flash Flooding occurred in many locations in Mississippi. Highway 80 and many other streets were flooded in and around Vicksburg. Water engulfed one person’s car, but the person was rescued. This event caused $300,000 in property damages. Over 6 inches of rain fell in Lexington in a little over 3 hours. The torrential rains caused Bear Creek to overflow and flood much of the town of Lexington. 45 businesses were affected by the flooding and 30 of these suffered major losses. As many as 300 homes had water damage. This event caused 10 million dollars in property damages. Portions of Jones County experienced flash flooding as 3 inches of rain fell in just 1.5 hours over saturated ground.

Forecast Discussion


- Dry and mild weather through Tuesday

Some clouds are moving through the area this morning in the wake of
a cold front to our south, and with a trough axis working through
the area this morning. The trough axis extends to a fairly potent
upper wave dropping south through Wisconsin this morning evident on
water vapor imagery. This wave will have little consequence as it
passes through this morning, as there is not really much moisture
other than the shallow low clouds moving through. It is not enough
to support any precipitation for our area.

Another wave dropping over the Eastern U.P. will cross Lower
Michigan early this afternoon. By then, even drier air will be in
place with the system this morning, sweeping any residual moisture
out of the area.

Once the wave early this afternoon moves through, we will see the
area of high pressure at the sfc and aloft build over the area. This
subsidence will ensure dry conditions, and increasingly warmer air
after a slightly cooler day today compared to yesterday.

- Chance of rain Tuesday night and Thursday

A short wave will move across the state Tuesday night and bring a
low chance of shower mainly to the northern cwa. There isn`t much
moisture return ahead of the system and so we really don`t expected
much in the way of precipitation.

The higher chance of rain will come Thursday. Another cold front
will try to move south. Juicy air ahead of the front with SBCAPE
1500-2k j/kg coupled with 40-45kts bulk shear could result in some
stronger storms Thursday afternoon.

- Summer-like temperatures

A large ridge is forecast to develop over the MS Valley over the
weekend. As heights rise aloft, so will surface temperatures. Highs
in the lower 80s Wednesday will increase to mid to upper 80s
Thursday, upper 80s Sunday and around 90 next Monday.

Looks like the heat that has been bottled up out west will finally make its way here early next week. Local TV met just said we could get three or more days in the 90s. In other words, enjoy this pleasant weather while it lasts.
