Long Range Still CoolMarch 27th, 2014 at 1:35 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the long-range outlooks for April 3-9. You can see Michigan is trending both cool and wet relative to average. In fact, the Weds. afternoon European model gave G.R. 5″ of snow on April 3rd. After the Sunday PM/Monday warm-up, the European has G.R. back only in the 30s for April 1-4. So, enjoy the brief warm-up. This won’t be spring for good.
