    And in comes the clouds.

    1. michael g (SE GR) says:

      90+% sunshine on a 3 day holiday weekend, with beautiful temps, and old woman fix can only complain about the clouds late on Monday afternoon. Probably messing up the farmer’s tan he’s working on with the sun coming in the window.

    1. fixxxer says:

      1. Swatz_Zoo(Cedar Springs) says:

      2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      1. Jordan (Twin Lake) says:

        Matt touches himself while watching The Golden Girls!

        1. matt says:

          Like you dont

  4. Brian (Grandville) says:

    I remember aMemorial Day weekend in 2005 I want to say, temps were in the low 90′s. We were camping on Hardy Dam, and swimming all weekend.

    1. Mark (East Lansing) says:


  5. Dan (Byron Center) says:

    Mostly sun and a few clouds. I’m not sure what Fixxxer is looking at. 86 degrees no complaints here!

  6. Brian(Grandville) says:

    With temps in the mid 80′s and dew points into the low 60′s now. I’m no longer in my comfort zone. Just got home, with an inside temp of 80. Time to turn on the a/c.

    1. michael g (SE GR) says:

      Yeah, just turned mine on for the second time this year. Hopefully we can save on the AC this summer to make up for the big gas bills from last winter (and next). Also recharged the AC on my car for the first time today. Thanks to Youtube it was a piece of cake.

  7. Rodey (Rockford) says:

    Another fantastic 80 plus degree day. Doesn’t get any better. I love it.

  8. Bailed up some hay to give to some of the horses. Landscaped as well and now going to sit down for a meal. Why a great day! Loving this weather! Great Memorial Day! Sending a shout out to those who fought for our freedom!

  9. steven (Derby Lake) says:

    I see a lot of cluster storms around the country. Scattered thunder storm warnings. Most of Maine is in a watch. A lot of Texas is under a tornado watch, I do see a county or two under a warning.

    Stay tuned, I got something for everyone coming up later on. ;)

  10. Brian(Grandville) says:

    Looks like a nice cluster of storms coming together in WI. They’re moving this was, but will the survive the pond?

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      My hopes aren’t up on these Brian but it would be a nice evening treat, and I need the storms to cut down on my dust bowl of a yard from tilling. Areas to the south best chances per the usual I wd think , but one never knows ,,well except fixer . Lol

      1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

        Some might sneak in later this eve , if at all but people to the east wil probably be the lucky ones. :(

  11. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Man oh man…Beautiful day. Okay I think I received more vitamin D today from the sun then I have in 9+ months combined. I have never even been close to being this white in my life , as I was used to San Diego Sun nearly all year and thank god I opted with 13 block as this is the highest I’ve ever used…lol ( except on my face ). But we didn’t see the sun for nearly 6-7 months basically so I guess that would do it. Finally stopped tilling about an hour ago….jeez…but I’m a few shades darker now , thank the good lord as I was giving Casper a run for his money!

  12. Finally got some of our flowers and tomato plants planted. Never really left Byron Center today. Got a ton done: Mowed the lawn, but down new mulch around our trees, weed whacked, bailed up hay for the horses, and now planted our flowers and vegtables. After a long day like this, there is no question I am sun burned. Now all I need is some rain to pour down on our fresh cut lawn and crops.

      You are a hard-working guy!!! Wish you were a bit older – I have a cute, single daughter ;-)

  13. Brian(Grandville) says:

    Dear Tigers,

    I can understand loosing a few close games in a row. It happens. But getting blown out several games in a row does NOT look good. Get it together!

    Sincerely, your fans.

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Sorry B …, but I will take it. That was an old fashion beat-down. Tigers always have our number , let’s hope this is a good sign and I will be happy just for today. :)

    2. Jack says:

      Yup, In The Words of My Deceased Father….” POOPY TIGERS”!!! ;-) . LOL….

    3. Mark (East Lansing) says:

      5 game lead in the division. That’s all that matters.

  14. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Have to love the lake saw….bzzzzzzzzzz , shedder !!

    1. Brian(Grandville) says:

      The lake saw, lol.I like it.

      1. Jack says:

        Ha, I “saw” That…. ;-)

  15. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Per NWS on scattered TSM development : Looks like the usual suspects with SE storm movement…( tonight & tuesday ). Still some mention of everyone else however.


  16. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Speaking of storms take a peak at this..!


  17. GunLakeDeb says:

    SOOOO happy the Storm Shredder was doing its thing today – we had sun until 6-ish. The lake was frothing there were so many folks enjoying the weekend; I can see the main swim beach at the State Park, and it was PACKED!! Mother Nature gave a wonderful gift this weekend in perfect weather.

    And while we were playing or working or simply relaxing – we should be grateful for those who gave their all, that we can be free.

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Week said GLD.. !

      1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:


    2. Jack says:

      AMEN & AMEN !!!! Freedom is NOT FREE !!!! :-) .

  18. Well based on radar looks like I won’t even get just general rain. Living up here along 96 is a drag. And tomorrow the best chance is on the east side of the state…shocker..Guess its off to Van Buren or Berrien County in the next few years

    1. Brian(Grandville) says:

      Ah yes, the bubble effect. Nothing new there I guess. That’s just what happens in this small segregated area of West Michigan, year after year. Everyone else gets the good stuff, or bad stuff, depending on how you look at it.

  19. I hope that Bill, along with all my fellow bloggers had a fantastic holiday weekend! What beautiful weather. Life is good :)

    1. Jack says:

      AGREE…Great DAY to do This, as Well. CUE :: The Lovin Spoonful – Daydream (HQ) – YouTube
      Heheeeee ….stay CUEDD…………………………..;-)

    1. Jeremy (Three Rivers) says:

      I saw that. Pea size hail and 60mph wind gusts. If it holds together I’m in the path. We need the rain down here.

      1. Cliff(KZOO) says:

        Yes we do need the rain, hope it holds together until it reaches Scotts.

  20. fixxxer says:

    What the heck is bill talking about frost for?

    1. Jack says:

      Probably Just To….” FROST” U…fixxxxxxer …YEAAAAAAAHHHHHH…PUN intended….stay CUEDDD…..

    2. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Hmmmm…tuff question as he is a meteorologist …jeez idk.

    3. Brian(Grandville) says:

      To make your blood pressure rise, and make the veins in your head pop. :)

      1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

        I think it’s two fold – First I agree , to give you something to complain about and we all know how difficult that is for ya…Second I think he is trying to get on your best friends good side as we know how much you enjoy Rocky and vice versa…!

      2. Sandy(Hudsonville) says:

        LOL!!! :)

  21. Nice storms south of 94… A usual.. *sigh* lol sorry for being a downer. I just really need some rain

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      I think you may see some rain Kyle , at least a 40 % chance…. I need some as well , but tomorrow might bring better luck .

        1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

          Ya , I’m thinking yu will IMHO as these surface based storms fizzle out I believe the ones behind , should they develop will be more elevated in nature. Not much thunder with the later storms but the moisture is plentiful so I hope it pans out for ya , with a side of thunder as well.!

    2. Mark (East Lansing) says:

      A bit more rain would be nice. After tomorrow, it looks like a warm and dry stretch through next weekend.

  22. tinainvbcounty says:

    Getting a rumble of thunder and some super fabulous cooling winds….what a fantastic weekend!

  23. Probably some small hail near Oshtemo looking at radar returns.

    1. Mike(Shepherd, Mi) says:

      Ya probably some small hail heading into Richland now

  24. Johnnie(Portage) says:

    Pretty good storm rolling through here now. Lots of lightning and thunder. Some wind gusts.

  25. SBPortage002 says:

    Looking like Kalamazoo getting the heaviest rain in the area right now. Quite a nice shade of red rolling through.

  26. Just had 2 small yellow colored cells develop about 6 miles south of me but will miss me. Hope it build north

  27. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    I can see the lighting to my south , looks like a decent show…..enjoy those whoa are in the viewing area as they should push east a bit as well.

  28. All I can say is enjoy the storms Kalamazoo, Barry, and Calhoun Counties…At least some people across the area are getting some action tonight.

  29. blueostrich (Richland) says:

    Wowza. Just picked up over an inch of rain in about 20 minutes.

  30. Kevin (Marshall) says:

    Fairly impressive cell just northwest of Marshall. Wind gusts to around 30 mph just south of Marshall out ahead of the cells.

  31. steven (Derby Lake) says:

    I can see the lightening that’s down south from here.

    1. Steven(DerbyLake) says:

      And I’m about 15 miles northeast of Greenville

  32. Mike (Mattawan) says:

    Well I had some very impressive (and VERY close) lightning about an hour ago accompanied with gusty winds probably peaking at around 45MPH! A very nice surprise to end a perfect Memorial Day weekend! I dont remember the last time we had an entire Memorial Day weekend sunny with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves over the past
    couple of days! Hopefully with June around the corner we will see that slight risk (even moderate?) swing into our neck of the woods more often!

  33. Jack says:

    GOOD MORNING and…..CUE::: Humble Pie – I Don’t Need No Doctor – 1971 – YouTube
