  2. Michael g (se GR) says:

    Lots of clouds this morning= no big storms this afternoon.

    1. Brian(Grandville) says:

      No surprise there, hopefully some of us at least get some rain.

      1. Michael g (se GR) says:

        Sun is breaking through here now.

        1. Brian(Grandville) says:

          I love this site. Gives us a good idea of whats gonna happen.

        2. michael g (SE GR) says:

          That IS a nice view.

  3. Bnoppe says:

    Sun is out in Akvion

  5. I still hold to my prediction I made yesterday of the clouds winning out and we do not get much severe weather. The slight risk area has been carved WAY to the SE now and no longer includes Oceana County (Before it was west of Milwaukee). Seems like most of the time (not always) we can almost predict what is going to happen with our severe weather.

  6. Travis (Oakland County) says:

    Awesome summer! Finished August +2.3 above average.

    Feels more like July out there the past several days.

    NWS Detroit saying another run at 90 is a real possibility for later in the week. Bring on the storms!

    1. How are you averaging so high? Is that the reading from the Flint station again?

    2. Nathan (Forest Hills) says:

      Still waiting for Bills stats on August. Would be interesting to see how other stations matched up.

      1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

        I see GR, Kalamazoo, Saginaw, and Traverse City all finished above average as well

        1. fixxxer says:

          No travis we werent above average here all summer.

        2. Travis (Oakland County) says:

          For August we were referencing. They are on the NWS page under preliminary monthly reports.

    3. Mark (East Lansing) says:

      I’d like to know your theory as to why Flint is consistently much warmer as related to average than everywhere else. I asked yesterday but I don’t think you replied. Several of us have voiced our ideas, but I am interested to see what you think.

      1. Travis (Oakland County) says:

        Just one of those things I think.

        As I said before, Kalamazoo had a colder average than GR and that makes even less sense.

        At least Flint’s averages are still lower than Detroit.

        1. Mark (East Lansing) says:

          Flint’s averages are lower than Detroit’s, as they should be. But they’re literally unbelievably lower. I guess it’s hard to understand that even though Flint’s numbers are so out of whack as compared to everywhere else, you don’t question it like everyone else. In fact, you seem to gloat about it.

        2. Travis (Oakland County) says:

          Flint’s averages are close to Saginaw actually

          And I was curious so I emailed NWS Detroit asking them and got a detailed response and that they stand behind the numbers.

        3. Mark (East Lansing) says:

          I guess we’ll have to accept that historically, Flint has been the coldest area of the state, relatively.

  7. INDY says:

    Storms are starting to get stronger alone the lk shore!! INDYY!!

    1. fixxxer says:

      Yeah all the way up north.

    2. Shelbyville says:

      I just noticed that as well, looks like any chance of storms will develop here soon.
      The storms popping up north of Muskegon happened very rapidly.

  8. Jeremy (Three Rivers) says:

    The GR update is really a downer. The threat sounds to even be east of me now. Another swing and a miss… Oh wait, there wasn’t even a swing. :(

  9. Storms up near Manistee look pretty strong!

  10. INDY says:

    Wow fixer if u can see look to your west! I guess being wrong again your best! INDYY!!

  11. Eileen (Hesperia) says:

    Just got 3/4″ of rain. Wow, was it ever pouring out.

  12. Mike ( Shepherd, Mi) says:

    The storm that hit me was well below severe limits. I had a warning and winds only hit 33 mph.
