Severe Weather This WeekApril 29th, 2012 at 12:49 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
After a quiet April for severe weather in the Great Lakes, we have a chance of storms this week. This is the Day 5 (Weds.) outlook from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) and you can see it includes SW Michigan. Stay tuned for later updates. In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine this Sunday…another freeze early today (it was already down to 30 at Big Rapids at midnight). Also, one killed and 100 injured during a severe storm in St. Louis. There were reports of hail bigger than baseballs. Here’s severe reports from SPC. Joe Bastardi’s summer forecast is out and he has the entire Great Lakes in cooler than average for the summer and 2-3 degrees cooler than average for SW Michigan (pretty much the coolest area relative to average for this summer in the U.S.). I am close to average for summer temperatures. In any case, we warm to at least the mid 70s midweek as the warm air and the chance for thunderstorms surges north to the Great Lakes.
