June Forecast from CPCMay 16th, 2014 at 8:54 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
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.
