Warmer Temps Ahead

posted in: Michigan Weather Forecast | 33

Some of you watch Bill broadcasting in his man cave during the week.  He and his wife Gayle move stuff around, change pictures and his cats make appearances sometimes.  You can download the backdrop of his room from WOODTV and make changes to it as I have done with my graphics software I use for art as seen below.

I created a new cat and added two of the posters I made, plus a poster from NASA on the door.  I am a digital painter and create posters on the side.  The one to the left of the door is a steampunk girl the other, to the right is a catalope.


Our freeze warning expires at 9 am this morning, we may see it once again tonight before warmer temps come back into the area later this week which will be a welcome change to this cold pattern.

Over 83,000 covid 19 deaths in our country and nearly 5,000 deaths in MI and nearly 1.5 million cases and it is still spreading, yet some are still obsessed with reopening and still many are not wearing masks or following social distancing! Incredibly ignorant! The health and safety of my fellow citizens is priority#1, not if you can get your haircut or go to a restaurant!

Really, I couldn’t care less if sports happen either. I want there to be safety guidelines in place before sports start back up again. My wife cut my hair last night and it came out great! Our production team is back to work following strict social distancing guidelines and my wife and I are working from home. Everything is good here!

Guess we should bid Rocky farewell til around November? Poor guy, only had half the snow he predicted this season and the Winter was just so short here! Well, see you in 6 months!

On a separate note, Dr. Fauci announced today that he doesn’t see schools reopening in the fall and told parents to expect to continue home-schooling your children well into the future. Craziness!

Hey mookie, so that means no college football then.

College football will go on no matter what even if they are force to start late they already said that ..INDY

At this point, best case scenario would be having most of the teams still play local games with no or limited fans. Some teams won’t play at all this year.

The NCAA said last week if there is no in person classes, there will be no fall sports.

California state universities (biggest state university system in the US) announced today that fall semester will be online only.

Yep Mark, that’s what I saw too. Here was the article in mlive with Michigan’s President talking about that. The NFL May happen but not looking good for college football.

No way Gretchen allows sports in this state, this fall! Heck at this rate I may have to drive to Indiana to get my haircuts for the rest of the year!

Yes sports are on the bottom of the priority list and protecting lives should be on the top of the list!

For all the doom and gloom a couple post about everyday, the past couple weeks have been perfect for me. Perfect outdoor working weather, and nearly everyday with sun. I’d take this any day over months on end with constant cloud cover.

Exactly! Way too much doom and gloom for all these sunny days and a huge warm up coming.

The May departures from average will look a lot different a week or two from now. Better take a snapshot now!

Currently 38* degrees out at thee YARDofBRICKS NE of GR had frost on the roof tops this morning but that was all I could see so maybe not as bad they once thought…The sun shine is beautiful this morning I see with the warmth coming finally looks like rain with it the give and take rule I guess have a super Tuesday…INDY

The low both here at my house and at the airport was 29. That 29 will be the 3rd coldest low for any May 12th at GR and it looks like the low at Muskegon was 29 and that would be a new record low for May 12th there. It has been a very cold start to the month of May.

NEW RECORD LOW??? It looks like a new record low may have been set at Muskegon. It looks like a low of 29 this morning at Muskegon and if that becomes official it will set a new record low. The overnight low both here at my house and at the airport was 29. While not a new record low it was none the less the 3rd coldest low of any May 12th at Grand Rapids. At this time the mean at Grand Rapids is 47.5 and that is a departure of -7.9°

I hope the cold weather posters on here enjoyed the cool down the past week. Although I’m sure they’re disappointed they didn’t get the snow and record cold temps that were well discussed. The big warm up begins! By next week it appears summer will be in force, and we are still weeks away from June!
