Weds. PM to Thurs. AM RainMay 14th, 2014 at 2:31 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
After four dry days, we’ve got some scattered showers and thundershowers. At 9:15 pm Sun. night, there are showers and storms just starting to move onshore around S. Haven and Pentwater. They are moving from SSW to NNE. Here’s GRR looping radar. Just about everyone will see at least 1/4″-1/2″ of rain from tonight thru Tues. AM, with a few spots probably up to an inch. The timing is right for many of us with the rain on Monday and at night and we do need the rain. The high temp. was 88° in G.R., 85° in Kalamazoo, 75° at the beach in Muskegon, 50.7° at the mid-Lake Michigan buoy 40 miles west of Holland and 46.4° at the mid-Lake Michigan buoy west of Traverse City.
