Chance of a ShowerMay 27th, 2013 at 5:00 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
8PM – Still a few showers – mainly SE of G.R. and some pockets of drizzle. Heavier storms in Indiana are moving east. We could see a t-storm sneak in from the SW late tonight, but there’s a better chance of a storm tomorrow or tomorrow night. We’ve had five days in a row with high temperatures in the 60s in G.R. and five days with cooler than average temperatures. Despite that, G.R. is still 3.3 deg. warmer than average for May. It’s a different story in the U.P., where Maruquette is 4.2 deg. colder than average for May. They’ve had cooler than average temperatures on 21 of 27 days. They’ve been below freezing on 11 days, incl the 24th, 25th and 26th. Here’s the GRR NWS discussion. Use the links below and in the next couple threads to keep up with the weather.
