Much needed rain Saturday AM.July 11th, 2009 at 4:11 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Inside WOOD TV8, Uncategorized, Weather
Saturday midday - We needed the rain! It was quite variable. GRR had 1.35″ and Battle Creek had 0.01″. Holland got 0.43″, Muskegon 0.22”, Ionia had a little over an inch, Kalamazoo only 0.11″. Now we get mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies for Sat. afternoon thru Tuesday. We’ve had two straight days with a south wind and STILL couldn’t get the high temperature above average (81 on Friday – average is 82). The overall pattern (the theme of the summer) is for a little cooler than average and drier (notwithstanding June 19) than average weather. Officially in G.R. up until this morning, we’ve had only a trace of rain since 7/1 and only 0.15″ in the last 11 days. Here’s GRR NWS radar, Great Lakes radar, latest surface observations, lightning data, GRR NWS discussion, Visible Satellite loop (daytime), Infrared Satellite Loop (night), Lake Michigan webcam at Holland. Enjoy the weekend and the week ahead.
