Showers exit Friday PM

May 9th, 2013 at 6:46 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Local    11:45 AM Friday  – the rain is about over south of G.R., just a few sprinkles left.  The showers north of G.R. will exit to the east and northeast this afternoon and skies will become partly cloudy and cool tonight.   This is the first day that none of the major reporting stations in the U.P. are reporting a snowcover.  However there are some big piles left in places and there is still some snow in the woods (esp. on north slopes).  Here’s the camera at Krupp’s Resort at Twin Lakes…the ice is still on the lake.

    Barely raining where I live (near Rivertown mall)…. but then parts of Grandville were flooded, so I don’t really want that to happen again…

    Happy birthday evening now Bill! :)

    I’ve been watching blobs of green on radar go overhead – but as of 9 PM, no rain has actually made it to the ground. Which makes me sad because if we don’t get some rain to wash the pollen off the cars – I’m gonna be washing cars all week…LOL!

      Lol…Speaking of Washing Cars…Cue, Working at The Carwash BLUES. !! ;-)

    Bill, just a quick word of thanks for all you do. I really appreciate that you do webcasts in the evening like that once in a while!
    I needed to pop on to see the weather for tomorrow as I have two (of three) children going on field trips with their respective schools. One of which will be headed to Detroit for a Tigers game and the Henry Ford Museum/ Greenfield Village (hate to say it but I’m glad I’m not chaperoning. Hehe… Poor little dears will be in the rain!)
    Have a great night!

      Welcome to the Blog Tina. Do not waste your time reading comments from Fixxxer, Big Daddy BC or political garbage. When the weather gets slow, this weather blog turns to crap. Trust me.
