Wednesday Night, Isolated ShowerJuly 31st, 2013 at 1:36 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Midnight – All that’s left of the showers is a sprinkle near Lansing and a few very light showers south and southeast of Chicago Skies will become partly sunny tomorrow. The weekend looks great, partly-mostly sunny and pleasant. The overall weather pattern for the first half of August will be a little cooler and drier than average. With an overall dry pattern, we should be grateful for the rain we get over the next 1/2 month. Through 7/30, July is now just 0.4 deg. warmer than average. If you add in today, we’ll end the month at +0.2 or +0.3. We’ve now had 9 consecutive days of cooler than average temperatures. Check out this summary of the cool air from the GRR NWS. I am doing the 10 PM and 11 PM news this Weds., so tune in for the latest.
