advisory    A Frost Advisory will be in effect tonight for Newaygo, Lake, Montcalm, Mecosta, Osceola, Clare, Isabella and Gratiot Counties from midnight to 8 am for temps. in the low 30s and scattered frost.  If you’re in these areas, or in a low spot that tends to get cold on clear, calm nights – it’s best to cover up anything frost sensitive.   We also have some River Advisories in effect (in the green-shaded counties).

Kodiak, AK smashed their daily temperature record high temps. by reaching 77 degrees. The old record was 68 degrees from 2002.  Good progress again today fighting wildfires in S. California.  Friday at mid-afternoon it was 88 F in San Diego. Saturdayday was cooler  with a mid-aftn. temp. of 69 F.

        Throwback ….

        1. Wow! Thats cool! I bet schools were closed that day

        2. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

          Strong meso – band dumping snow over in the Zeelend / Holland area…really cool to see. If I can figure out how to put a video up I have some really good vids during some of worst winter storms driving through 3-5 ft snow drifted roads , hopefully I can figure it out. Lol

    Starting tomorrow we have a prolonged week of at least 60 and above, I will take that over the 50′s and 40′s we had this week! :)

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Yes it looks that way as the NWS would agree with ya….( also talks about our slight chance of storms , GFS strongest )

      THE GFS IS THE MOST BULLISH ON THERMODYNAMICS AND SHOWS MUCAPE OVER
      2K J/KG AND LI/S NEAR -8C. THE ECMWF IS MORE TEMPERED BUT STILL
      SHOWS MUCAPE OVER 1K J/KG. STORM ORGANIZATION APPEARS POSSIBLE WITH
      SHEAR VALUES AOA 40 KTS LATE TUESDAY SO WE/LL HAVE TO REMAIN
      VIGILANT FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF STRONG/SEVERE STORMS.

      WE/RE SIDING WITH THE SLIGHTLY QUICKER ECMWF FOR TIMING THE TRAILING
      COLD FRONT THROUGH THE CWA WHICH WOULD TAKE AWAY MOST OF THE
      THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WEDNESDAY. BUT ANY CHANGES TO FROPA TIMING
      WOULD OBVIOUSLY AFFECT THAT.

      ” THE REST OF THE PERIOD LOOKS ON THE DRY SIDE WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER
      60S TO MID 70S “

  7. DF (SE Mich) says:

    Our maple trees leaves are finally fully out but our big walnut trees are just starting to come out… Crazy late.

    1. michael g (SE GR) says:

      Much the same here, our maple’s leaves are really growing, but north of town today in Rockford, looking at the hillsides where there are a lot of oaks, it still looks mostly bare. Amazing!

  8. It amazing how many bugs there are this time of year! We drove from Byron Center to Hastings. From Hastings to Dowling. From Dowling to Delton. And Delton back to Byron Center. The front end of our car was plastered with a bunch of bugs that we actually likely have to scrap off, there is that many. Its amazing

  9. Ohh and Larry, Hastings offers some great hospitality. People are very helpful and friendly in that town. More than I have ever seen in any other community in West Michigan. I was highly impressed and felt welcomed and like I was everyone’s friend in that town. Great town you live in.

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Sounds like a nice town for sure , have to take a visit sometime.

  10. Rocky (Rockford) says:

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      I was just looking at that , NWS had it up as a link….. I really wouldn’t mind a non scorcher of a summer , but the nights need to get warmer then this , that much is for sure!! An average or slightly below average would be just fine with me , as I’ll take 70′s and low 80′s all summer long. We shall see what happens , no worries here as I just have today anyway.

      1. Rocky (Rockford) says:

        A summer with a lot 70′s would be AWESOME! Bring it!

    2. Rodey (Rockford) says:

      There will plenty of 80′s and 90′s this summer. I love it. Bring it. Who knew? Fantastic. Thanks for listening.

  11. Jack says:

    WOW,,,,,TIGERS are ON FIRE !! They WIN Again Tonight !!!! Stay CUEDDD………………….

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Hope my A’s close out there game tonight , there up 6-2 bottom 9th . I really hope we don’t have to face the Tigers again ..!

    2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      Who knew?

  12. Barb says:

    I think we’ll be seeing more below average than above average temps this summer.
