Many of us stayed dry this Tuesday. Rainfall was light in those areas that saw rain in our area: 0.01″ Big Rapids and Mt. Pleasant, 0.02″ Lansing, 0.08″ Battle Creek, 0.09″ Marshall. Two places that got big storms…Merrill, west of Saginaw had 2.4″ of rain and 3/4″ hail and Manchester near Ann Arbor had 2.1″ of rain and 3/4″ hail. We are in the General Thunderstorm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center. The NAM (caribou) prints out 0.07″ of rain for G.R. today and the GFS-plot has 0.06″. The Tues. PM run of the European model has the highest 850 mb temperature at 14.6C. That might get us mid 80s, but not 90. Check out the links below:
