June Forecast from CPC

May 16th, 2014 at 8:54 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

June temps. CPC  June Precip. CPC   Here’s the June Outlook from the Climate Prediction Center.  They have a higher than average probability of cooler than average temperatures over West Michigan and the entire Great Lakes area with a continuation of the warmer than average conditions on the West Coast.  Northern Michigan has a good chance of below average rainfall, while Southern Lower Michigan has an equal chance of above and below average rainfall.  I continue to think temperatures will be slightly cooler than average in June.   This is mostly because of the warmer than average water off the West Coast inducing a mean ridge over the West with a WNW flow over the Central U.S. and to a lesser extent the cooler than average Great Lakes waters, which will have even less of an effect as we get to mid-summer.

    Well – as long as I can go swimming at least a few times this summer…. guess I don’t mind a cooler than usual summer time. :)

    Bill, can you please just stop with the your cold bias, and these outlooks already………oh wait, they aren’t yours.

      LOL!! :-)

      At least the outlook maps don’t have blue-so-dark-it’s-almost-black! I can like with a teeny bit of “powder blue”. Will save on A/C costs….

    Keep the FACTS rolling about the below normal temperature pattern! There is no change in sight! There is nothing better than a cooler than normal summer! Music to my ears!!!

      Going to be a great summer. Warm temps with a few cool days and then a great MILD winter. Bring it. I love it. Fantastic. Who knew.

  4. John (Norton Shores) says:

    Well to look on the bright side at least we’re not dealing with that 100 degree heat and fires in California, not sure why anyone would ever ask for 100 degree heat and persistent dry conditions. Ready for persistent 70′s and low 80′s though.

  5. Jeff (Portland) says:

    I will take a summer in the 70s and low humudity ;)

    1. Brian (Grandville) says:

    The SPC is still waiting for some pieces to come together , mainly better flow and moisture transport as the instability looks to be adequate , and is a waiting game to see if we can get into some unsettled weather next week. Comon Booomers….


    1. DF (SE Mich) says:

      Lol, that is awesome :)

  7. DF (SE Mich) says:

  13. Dan (Byron Center) says:

    May? Feels like late March. Is it snowing in Traverse City? We can at least get to 70 for more than a day or two!

    What a bunch of BS. I hate this state.

    1. AlleganJoe says:

      I don’t agree with the BS part–but I do agree with you on disliking this State. Never seems to be able to get warm/hot long enough before cooling off again. I wish I could move to a warmer sate-perhaps someday.
