Sunday PM

June 29th, 2013 at 11:45 am by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Local   5:30 PM -  Showers are generally southeast of a line from the Lansing area to Benton Harbor.  They’ve had a couple showers in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.  The sun is shining brightly in G.R.  Looks like G.R. may end up exactly average for temperatures for June.  The overnight European run says we could come close to 90 on Saturday.  Still a chance of a shower Tue./Weds. – smaller chance on Thurs.  Higher chances to the southeast of G.R. and lower chances to the northwest.   We should become partly cloudy overnight. (visible satellite loop).   (radar here).  We are in the General Thunderstorm Outlook for this afternoon/evening – not in it tomorrow – then SE of G.R. on Monday.  The next chance of severe weather may come not this coming week, but the week after.   Lansing is up to 8.35″ of rain for June, Kalamazoo is at 6.04″ and Grand Rapids at 4.52″.     For current Michigan weather observations and wind speeds, click here.

    looking at the long range while not cold per say its hard to believe we will be so below average going through july.

  3. Dan says:

    5 or 6 degrees below average is really not that bad! We could have temps in the 60s. Temps look very average as we get into the 4th of July! Get out and enjoy the weather! Summer seems to go VERY fast.

    Today has a early fall or as Bill stated a Upper Michigan feel to it. I now have a temp of 71° here so its not cold but it is cool, a time of “don’t have to weather” that is don’t have to have the air on nor you don’t have to have the heat on. While for the most part I like warm temps this kind of weather in all in all not that bad in fact if we could stay like this all year that would be great. But if that happened we would not be in Michigan anymore.

    The temperatures are absolutely great today. Keep the below average temperatures rolling! I would love to see an entire 12 month period with below average temperatures!

  8. Dan says:

    Do we have snow in the forecast yet, Rocky? Too early, I know. Soon it will snow!

  9. mr. negative says:

    Overcast, wet, North wind. Summer solstice is behind us, may as well start our run back into nine months of winter.

  10. Dan says:

    Maybe true Mr. Negative! We will get some nice warm days in July and August! Then, I’m sure we get some nice Fall days. Enjoy the nice weather while we have it! I love the long hours of daylight. We just went past the longest day of the year. I’m not rushing summer on by. We have nice days to enjoy!

  11. Barb says:

    It was a gorgeous day up here in Cheboygan with sunshine and temps in the 70s. A light breeze coming off the lake felt just right. Unfortunately the wind from the N brought in algae on shore.

  12. Jerry hoag says:

    I WANT SMORES!! THANKS JACK CAUSE NOW I AM CRAVING SMORES LIKE CRAZY AND IT IS 433AM AND YOU CAN’T COOK THEM ON THE CAMPFIRE AT THAT TIME IN YOUR FRONT YARD. GEEEEZZZEEEE WHIIZZZZZEEEEYY but we still all love you Jack!! :) maybe smore tomorrow.

  13. Travis (Oakland County) says:

    Detroit’s +0.3 for June, and I’m +2.2 still. Holland is +0.6, while GR and Lansing are exactly average.

    And this was after I was +5 degrees for May.

    It’s been a warm start to summer! And almost a carbon copy of 2012 for me so far where May 2012 was +6 and June 2012 was +2.7.

    Looks like the warming trend for the 4th of July and after is still on.

    1. Bill Steffen says:

      When you say “I” I assume you’re talking about Flint, which is always warmer relative to average than the surrounding stations. Overall, it’s been a month with average temperatures and above average rainfall in Lower Michigan. It looks like G.R. will be 2.4 degrees cooler than June 2012. If that trend continues, we’ll be seeing temperatures average below freezing in June by the year 2025! Now’s the time to make utility rates “skyrocket” and tax the price of a gallon of gas up to $9 (European levels)! ;>)

      1. Jerry hoag says:

        Bill……LOL…..this is way too funny.

      2. Jerry hoag says:

        By the time too Bill I will be around the age of 60!!! YIKES!! But hey it is all good, GOD will watch over me.

  14. Kevin (Msrshall) says:

    Look like part of Kalamazoo county had over an inch of rain in the past hour and now they are calling for locally heavy rains for the next two days.

  15. mr. negative says:

    Rain drops…SE GR…

  16. Jeff (Richland) says:

    Thought it wasn’t going to rain today Bill, we’ve had several rounds of showers today and we just got hit with torrential train and I would estimate 30-40 mph wind gusts!

  17. Jeff (Richland) says:

    .45″ so far today

  18. Kevin (Msrshall) says:

    Heavy rain shower in Marshall now.

  19. mr. negative says:
