Winter vs. SummerAugust 6th, 2014 at 9:26 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click on the pictures to enlarge. These are comparisons of winter (Feb.) and summer from Rick Jipping (on the right in Zeeland) and Ryan de Vries (on the left). What a difference! That’s Michigan. You really get a change of seasons. Grand Rapids had 116″ of snow this past winter and Holland had 152.4″. Both were 2nd highest ever totals. This year I think winter comes a little earlier than in recent years. We’ll be shoveling snow in November. No sign of any really cool air yet – we’ve got a lot of warm and dry weather ahead through the weekend and into much of next week.
Thurs. AM – Beautiful day – low temps. this AM: 57 GRR, 49 Ludington, 48 Hopkins, 46 Cadillac, Baldwin and the usually cool Kalamazoo Nature Center, 43 Vanderbilt, 41 Leota (Clare Co.) and 39 at Doe Lake in the U.P. The morning run of the NAM has it dry thru Sunday. The morning GFS-plot has 0.01″ for Sunday pm, 0.10″ Monday and 0.08″ Tuesday. I don’t think we get rain Sunday. Great weather for the LPGA golf tournament at Blythefield C.C.
