Click on the image to enlarge. This is the Muskegon GLERL camera from NOAA Coastwatch – Note the fog (and the bug on the right side of the pic.). It’s much cooler at the lake. The GLERL weather station at Muskegon showed 48.8° at 7:30 pm. Grand Rapids (airport) showed 80°. At noon it was 71° at the Regional Airport in Holland and just 53° at the beach in Holland. The satellite loop shows the clouds pretty much gone inland. We still have some fog over the lake this evening, but drier air will eventually cause that to evaporate. If you look at the current weather map, you can see the cooler and drier air coming in from the west (at each weather station on this map, the number in the upper left at each station plot is the temperature and the number in the lower left is the dewpoint). It still looks dry and pleasant through Sunday, with a chance (not a sure thing) of a shower or t-storm from Sunday night to Tuesday. Temperatures will be a bit cooler tomorrow (Thu.) and then we’ll see a gradual warming trend that will send temperatures into the 80s early next week. We may see a trend to a little cooler air as we start the month of June. I still don’t see any significant or widespread frost, so (as the ground dries out) you can plant frost sensitive plants.
