Showers End – Patchy Fog PossibleJune 9th, 2013 at 8:53 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The last of the light showers/sprinkles are exiting to the southeast. We’ll be partly cloudy (to mostly clear) this Monday night with a chance of patchy fog. Rainfall was heaviest in Ingham and Clinton Counties where 1 – 1 1/2″ of rain was reported. We had a few showers scattered about Sunday afternoon, but they missed Festival, B-93′s Birthday Bash, Kalamazoo’s Greek Festival and Art Hop and Battle Creek’s World’s longest cereal table. Check out my facebook page and take a look at the 2 pics. from Jenni Westra. Did anyone else see this? I can’t tell from a still shot if the cloud in the middle is rotating. Was this facing west or southwest? Here’s storm total rainfall. We’ll have scattered showers Sun. night into Monday evening, with a chance of a thundershower. Any severe weather should stay well to our south. Here’s the GRR NWS discussion. Use the links below and in the next couple threads to keep up with the weather. Watch for updates on WOOD-TV.
