Mostly Sunny Next Four DaysJuly 10th, 2013 at 10:47 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Beautiful picture of the Saugatuck Channel (Kalamazoo Rivera) from Jack Martin at ReportIt. See it full screen. The satellite loop shows clear to mostly clear skies over much of the state. We’ll see mostly sunny and dry weather through the weekend. It’ll be a fantastic day for Maranda’s Park Party Thursday from Noon – 2 PM in Muskegon. Topical Storm Chantal is now just a tropical depression (easterly wave). You can hardly find a circulation. It will move up along the East Coast of Florida, bringing moderate to heavy rain, but no significant damage. There are no tropical systems in the Eastern Pacific. There are no tropical storms in the Southern Hemisphere as I write this. In the Western Pacific, major Typhoon Soulik is heading toward northern Taiwan and mainland China.
The next 10-15 days look warmer than average for West Michigan and the Great Lakes area…dry to start in the middle of next week…but we’ll eventually get back into the periphery thunderstorm pattern.
