Tues. Night/Wednesday RainAugust 5th, 2013 at 1:07 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Tues. 8:07 PM- Watching t-storms in W Wisconsin. If they continue east, they’ll get to W. Michigan shortly before sunrise. There’s a chance of a shower or thunderstorm mainly after 2 AM and continuing thru mid-afternoon on Weds. Severe weather is not likely, though a passing storm could contain gusty winds and brief heavy rain. We’ll be mostly sunny and pleasant on Thursday.
The high temperature in G.R. Monday was 72 – that was 11 deg. cooler than average. Chilly temps. Monday AM – Low temperatures: 49 Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo (average low 62), 41 Cadillac and Manistee, 40 Big Rapids and Houghton Lake, 38 Spincich Lake. Tuesday was the 14th day in a row with cooler than average temperatures and the 13th day that we have failed to reach 80 (the record is 16 days for G.R. for a streak starting in July or August). Temperatures back to average for midweek and then a return to slightly cooler than average for next weekend. You can come back during the day to this thread and check links for current weather.
