Here’s links…rainfall this morning as of 8 am: 0.92″ Fennville, 0.51″ Grand Haven, 0.42″ S. Haven, 0.41″ Benton Harbor. Rainfall as of 5 pm: 0.01″ Grand Rapids, 0.47″ Muskegon, 0.84″ Holland (Regional Arpt.), 0.03″ Kalamazoo, 0.02″ Battle Creek. Showers along the lakeshore and along and south of I-94 will spread north across the area. So everyone will see at least a little rain. While you may see a thunderstorm, severe weather is unlikely. Other rainfall totals: 5.38″ Lexington KY, 4.02″ Charleston SC, 2.51″ Savannah GA, 1.28″ Chicago, 1.26″ Kenosha WI. The remains of Hurricane Bertha providing a stormy, wet and rainy day in NW Europe. Here’s an early winter forecast from WeatherBell. I’m leaning toward a little cooler than average, not as cold as last year from Jan. – Mar. and at this point, I’d go a little above average snowfall in the lake-effect belts and near average as you head east and northeast of G.R. with more snow in Nov. since ’08. Still early…still summer.
