Next week – warm early, cool late

September 28th, 2012 at 1:38 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

  Click the image to enlarge.  This is the GFS model for next Friday morning, Oct. 5th.  We remain in a dry pattern here in Western Lower Michigan.  Temperatures will be mild through the weekend, the warmest day will likely be next Weds. (a few spots could approach 80 Weds. PM), then a cold front will come through and send our temperatures down to a little below normal for next Thursday/Friday/Saturday.  This ties in with the re-curving typhoon (Jelawat:  http://www.usno.navy.mil/NOOC/nmfc-ph/RSS/jtwc/warnings/wp1812.gif) that’s going to hit Japan.   The models still have the higher probability of dry weather for our area this weekend.  The NAM (caribou) gives G.R. 70 for a high temp. on Saturday, 65.7 on Sunday and 67.3 on Monday.  The NAM MOS shows a high of 69 for Saturday and 67 on Sunday and the GFS is 69 for Saturday and 64 for Sunday.  I don’t have the morning European numbers yet, but I’ll get a look at those before the 5 PM news.  Looks like good weather for Football Frenzy, ArtPrize and all your weekend activities.

    Just back from the artprize and chinese lantern launch, and all I can say is WOW. That had to be the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen. We were a little nervous at first with that many people playing around with fire, but man, once the sky was filled with them things it was a sight to behold. Anyone who hasn’t seen it, look up video of the event.

    Did the NWS actually mention that word, SNOW?
    IT WOULD NOT BE OUT OF THE
    QUESTION NORTHERN SECTIONS OF LOWER MICHIGAN COULD SEE THE FIRST
    SNOW FLAKES OF THE SEASON FROM THIS NEXT WEEKEND.

    YUP! The winter weather is not far away!! Are you getting ready?

    1. Lisa (Caledonia) says:

      Woo hoo! :)

      Been working hard outside getting things ready and winterized because I think old man winter has missed us and is back from his LONG vacation and he’s ready and willing to arrive early.

        I have basically all of my fall yard chores done now. I’m estimating I’ll have to go through two more lawn-mowing sessions before I can take a break from that for the year. The daylilies and a few other plants haven’t completely dried out yet, though, so I still have some cleaning to do in the garden when those finish off. I have some bulbs to plant, too.

    The colors from Cadillac to Gaylord are the best I’ve seen for several years.

    We’re JUST starting to see a few spots of colour here in NE Indiana…. mostly from ‘distressed’ trees so far. Am hoping our drought conditions didn’t spoil Nature’s splendiferous display!

    Good Day,

    I must admit that I really do like the possibility of just one more 80* day…
