BIG storms

IMG00026.jpg <–almost baseball-sized hail from near Dallas, TX late Wednesday afternoon.  They are getting nailed across parts of Missouri, Arkansas and NE Texas.  I see Plano, TX had a gust to 78 mph and there were a couple of measured 70-75 mph gusts.  We’re recorded a dozen tornadoes and significant flooding.  Two awesome bowing segments now…one in northern Arkansas and another in NE Texas.  A new watch is possible into central Indiana.  I think the big storms stay south of us…a few scattered showers are likely tomorrow here in southern Lower Michigan.  The afternoon GFS was more bullish on rain…giving Grand Rapids a 74% chance of rain and Sturgis a 100% chance of rain tomorrow.  The morning NAM had GRR with an 88% chance and gave Sturgis well over an inch of rain.   That looked high to me.   I think the southern storms will suck up the inflow moisture and we’ll just see some lighter scattered showers here.  I’ll write more later after the news.

      If I remember correctly he has said similar to last winter, possibly getting colder earlier. Last Halloween was NICE! 60+.

        it’s all speculation, no way they can know what winter will bring yet, yet alone the next two months. summer will get here, a big warm up is coming next week.

    I think the weather has been great! Let’s see, only one or two humid days, very comfortable sleeping nights, plenty of sunshine on the weekends, no over powering heat….what more could you ask for? 85 degree temps and dew points in the 60s and 70s? Ugh….that’s the worst part of our summers. The humidity!!!!
