Grand Haven Channel from Beach Bum Joe at ReportIt. To see the picture full screen click here. We have two great days coming up weatherwise. Mostly sunny today and most of Saturday. Clouds increase from NW to SE during the late afternoon and evening Saturday with rain Saturday night…about 1/4″. Most of Easter Sunday will be dry and a bit breezy. Temperatures low-mid 50s today, upper 50s to near 60 on Saturday and back to the mid-upper 40s for most of Sunday. The warmest 3 days this year all occurred back in January. The European model gives G.R. around 1/2 inch of snow early Monday and takes our 850 mb temperature to a cold -14C. Air temperatures may not get past the mid 30s on Tuesday. We may be back to the low 50s next Thurs. For those of you heading south, temperatures are warming up. Early Friday, record low temperatures were reached in Key West (58), Orlando (38), Jacksonville (35) and Gainesville (32). Temperatures should be back close to 80 by Sat. PM. from Orlando south. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely farther north from Panama City over to Gulf Shores and New Orleans with temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70. Phoenix, Arizona should see highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Here’s a look at past Easter Weather courtesy of the GRR NWS.
Check this out. It’s a story on “Graphene” by John Coleman, who will be 79 years old in October. He’s a founder of the Weather Channel and for 7 years, he did the weather on Good Morning America. I did the weather on GMA once. Here’s Mt. Etna erupting on Sicily. From the Rutgers Snow Lab. So far, this winter ranks as the 4th snowiest ever in the N. Hemisphere.
