A Dry Week

September 2nd, 2013 at 3:49 am by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Sunset Tom DeVette  Here’s a pretty sunset pic. from Tom DeVette.  Most of us missed out on the rain Sunday evening.  Some got a passing shower.  Here’s storm total rainfall, until GRR NWS resets it.   It’ll be dry and cooler today with highs in the low 70s.  The European model gives G.R. only 0.01″ of rain Sat. PM.  The GFS plot has a whopping .05″.  Temperatures will be comfortably cool at night and slowly warming in the day, into the low-mid 80s by the end of the week.  No sign of chilly fall weather yet.  Check out the major fireball (inc. video) that streaked across the SE U.S. at 2:30 AM on 8/28.  It was 20 times brighter than a full moon!

    Praying this warm weather stays with us as long as it possibly can.
    The thought of another Winter (ugh) coming is mighty depressing.

    Happy Labor Day Bloggers! Can definitely feel the influence of the cold front that went through. Heat and humidity are gone! Are they gone for the season?

    Happy Labor Day to ever one. There is a touch of early fall in the air today, while our temps are still in the mid and upper 60′s off to our north across the UP the temps are now in the low to mid 50′s with a strong wind coming off Lake Superior making for what must be a raw day for them. In fact looking at the bridge cam the folks doing the bridge walk had their winter coats on. But hey it dose look to warm up and for the most part September is a nice month temp wise around here and some times that can last into early October lets hope that is the case this year.

    Drove through a crazy severe storm with 1.5″ hail and 70 mph winds yesterday around Mancelona. Then a severe storm came through at my house just after midnight. What a lightning show!

    Looks like summer is hanging on and the warm temps continue. My streak now stands at 16 consecutive days of high temperatures warmer than average.

      Pretty impressive, no warning for 1.5 hail or the winds out by you. Sure that wasn’t in you head buddy?

      1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

        Check yesterday’s storm reports. There were tons of severe thunderstorm warnings yesterday in northern lower. Not sure where you get your information from?
