Wisconsin near Janesville has been producing hail…up to 2″ in size near Waterloo IA.  It’s weakened and should continue to weaken as it comes east.   The models never get the cool air here…so look for a relatively warm week.  Blossomtime is coming.  Temperatures are near 70 inland now…but only 52 now at the beach in Muskegon and 59 on the beach in S. Haven with the lake breeze.  A deck of high-level cirrus clouds is coming in from the west.  Low-mid 70s today…it could be 80 tomorrow and Weds.  For Grand Rapids, the European model prints out .17″ of rain tonight into Tues., .02″ Fri and .40″ Sunday.    Most of the Lower 48 states is warm (for a change this spring).  It was the first 100 of the year at Phoenix on Sunday.  Thermal CA hit 107.  It was 90 at McCook NE and 89 in Ft. Myers.  The high was 78 in Denver and Huron SD and 73 in Traverse City.  Much cooler and wet weather will move into the Central Plains, W. Iowa and Missouri with the cold heading south into Texas, where temperatures will be 15-20 deg. cooler than average for midweek.

      Bill that was really entertaining to watch you outdoors today! Nice and energetic. I had to do a presentation today about a deadly disease, so it was kind of hard to be energetic, but I did my best!

  12. TomKap (Michigan St. & Fuller) Grand Rapids says:

    Buds on the trees!!

    1. Jack says:

      Yup, and Crab Apple Trees, are Flowering in My Back Yard… Spring ~ Time in MICHIGAnnnnnnnnn, it just Don’t Get NO..BETTER…. ;-)

    2. Eric H. says:

      In a normal spring, leaves are fully out on the trees by first week of May. Yeah I see buds, but think its going to be a couple weeks before leaves actually form, worst March and April ever as far as temps. At least we are supposed to be around 80 next couple days, though with the heavy rain and t-storms this morning, I see it only hitting maybe 70 or so. Still not bad though.

    I’m only 1.8 degrees below average for April now and closing fast. Not a bad month.

    Sure was rainy… but according to NWS, only 8 cloudy days. 8 days clear, and 13 days partly cloudy.

    Another summer day with Wings playoffs tonight. Perfect!

    1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

      Dang, compared that to GR. GR had 10 cloudy days in April and only 4 clear days.
