sunset report it thom august 3 2013    Pretty sunset Saturday from Thom at ReportIt.  See it here full screen.  After an isolated patch of fog overnight, it should be a mostly sunny and pleasant day with afternoon temperatures in the 70s.  It looks like many/most of us will get thru at least noon Monday dry, then a chance of a shower or t-shower Monday night to Weds.

Check out the WAIST-DEEP HAIL in Windsor, Colorado. Nice shelf cloud from the Colorado storms.

    This weather has been perfect! Do we hit 80 degrees this week or break a record for consecutive days without reaching 80 in August?

  2. INDY says:

    33 more days and we will have snow ………..INDYY

    1. fixxxer says:

      i bet meijers makes you shovel snow to huh?

      1. michael g (SE GR) says:

        Funny that you don’t even realize how bad it makes you look to mock someone for working.

  3. Nathan (forest hills) says:

    It is interspersing to follow Fridays weather on all stations… Many people are raising the temp and keeping it sunny!

    1. Nathan says:

      I mean interesting btw… Anyways, better yet, pick a day on Accuweather and see how far off they are. On September 17, 2013, they are going for 70 and mostly sunny! Lets see how close they are.

  4. YeahThatDan says:

    Wow! What great weather! I think, we will be at least 75 today. And that sun! Who is going to the beach? The sand will be warm, the water will be cold! The kids will be going back to school, soon! I hope they are out in this great weather! And not playing Sega!

  5. fixxxer says:

    pathetic temps for august.

    1. Brian (Grandville) says:

      Upper 70′s and low 80′s with lots of sun and low humidity is pathetic to you. Wow

    2. AlleganJoe says:

      The..”Dog Days Of Summer” August are Not a reality this year. The temps. in the mid-to-upper 70′s is Better then the high of 20 degrees with a wind-chill of 1+ and Snow!! :)

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        Bring on the cold and snow baby!

  6. kevin. w says:

    Up here in the upper peninsula for the week and people here says its been a very cold wet summer so far. I can believe it as it got down to 44 this morning here just east of Marquette. The forecast here for the week is highs in the mid to upper 60s with lows around mid 40s/50 range. Glad we packed some late fall weather clothes this time. Just about every house has a ton of firewood stacked up (like 20 or more cords) so I don’t know if they know something about the coming winter than we all know. Have a good day and will let U know how the weather is this week. :) )

  7. Dan says:

    Wow, it could snow up there and soon huh Kevin w? Cool weather, sure seems like we are in early Fall! Maybe, it’ll heat up a bit in September!

  8. michael g (SE GR) says:

    What a GREAT weekend of weather. Next weekend looks much the same.

  9. tom says:

    This is turning out to be a wonderful summer! I love the sunny warm weather and low dew points instead of the oppressive heat and tropical humidity that we had all summer long last year. This summer I have spent a lot of time outdoors in the fresh air. Last summer I stayed inside all summer long where there was A/C. It was not an enjoyable summer last year, too hot too miserable and too dry. This year, it is great!! Thank you Lord !!!

      +100 trillion!

  11. YeahThatDan says:

    WAIST-DEEP HAIL, you say! Wow! That is some interesting info. Thanks for sharing, this info Bill!

  12. Clarence says:

    Why does everyone say stuff about fixxxer after every post he makes? I haven’t been here for a long time but don’t see what the problem is with him. He posts his opinion and is actually someone who shares his opinion on bills blog. People don’t seem to be bothered by Indy even though all he does is make it seem like he is a weatherman who is obsessed with himself and admitted to using weed always. He even signs his name after every post like someone who thinks his autograph is worth something. No one knows Indy on the streets of Grand Rapids but he thinks he is famous like Kentucky chicken or lake catfish. Oh well. I don’t actually mind him either but still think their is a bias against fixxxer and for Indy

    1. YeahThatDan says:

      Do you read, the fixxxer!? He posts negative things here. This is, Bill’s blog! We are here, to have fun! Fixxxer is a troll who wants to make people feel bad! He should really seek help! I bet, he has not worked, in over a year! But, I will let Bill decide! He is the owner of this blog, not you Clarence!

    2. INDY says:

      Admitted to use weed …lolololo What are u 3….Sorry I work hard have a nice home 2 beautiful little gals and a hundred pound Husky just the American way I stay my friend !!!!! But yes I smoke weed!! INDYY

    3. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      Clarence is fixxxer people. fixxxer is a whining complaining racist!

  13. Clarence says:

    Bill doesn’t comment on these things and would likely think Indy is a creep who is trying to take his job as weather controller. This is a blog for everyone dan! Indy has his place here but I am tired of hearing everyone cry and complain about fixxxer everyday when Indy pushes around everyone and thinks he is like a kardahsian

    1. YeahThatDan says:

      Who are you, to judge Bill’s blog!? I think, you are jealous of INDY. He has been here a long time Clarence! And what do you mean about Kardahsian. I admit, Kim has a bubble butt! And the sister is cute, who had a baby! But, this is BILL’S BLOG not kardahsian!!

    2. Cliff (Scotts) says:

      Clarence if you haven’t been here long you don’t know how pessimistic fixxxer is. He never has anything nice to say and bill does care about his blog, he posts all the time on here. Today is a beautiful day but fixxxer will say its to cold or to hot he has no happy medium. I honestly feel sorry for the guy or girl.

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        Clarence is fixxxer!

  14. Clarence says:

    Mind your own business. Everything is a big deal to you with all your !!!!!s. why is everything so exciting to you. My son says your posts are a joke.

    1. INDY says:

  15. Clarence says:

    1. INDY says:

    2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        1. Brian(Grandville) says:
