Warm and Dry

Warm and Dry

posted in: Weather Forecast | 7

The lawn is turning brown, but being the optimist I don’t have to mow it.  Most of Allegan County has had less than a tenth of an inch of rain over the past 11 days.  We have a heat wave coming starting Sunday with very little rain in the forecast.  The corn and soybeans in area fields have been struggling to come up and with the temperatures rising to near 90° by Sunday many crops without irrigation will suffer.

High pressure will bring dry weather through Thursday with low humidity. (The HRRR models are trying to bring in a few scattered showers today from the low pressure still spinning to our east.) A weak front may bring a few showers by late Thursday night into Friday (about a 35% chance at this point) followed by more fair weather for the weekend.

There is free fishing this weekend – you can fish without a license.  I can imagine the piers of lake Michigan will be crowded – inland lakes hold lots of bass, pike, walleye and bluegills – so if you want to try this sport to see how you like it, go and give it a try.

SHORT TERM…

Fair weather through the near term as sfc high dominates with low humidity and below normal temperatures. There could be some isolated showers across the extreme eastern zones this afternoon as lapse rates are step enough to allow some diurnally enhanced showers but chance is low enough to leave out of the forecast for now. .

LONG TERM…

Northwest upper flow will take control late in the work week as the upper low to our east moves toward the East Coast. A weak surface boundary over the Northern Great Lakes should make progress south Thu night and Friday, and along with a couple of short waves within the upper flow, we could see a few showers and storms move through in the late Thursday night and Friday periods.

The surface boundary appears to wash out by Friday night, leading to the start of another dry period. Temps will remain coolish under the northwest flow. Upper ridging is indicated over the Western Great Lakes by the middle of weekend, while at the surface a southerly flow develops.

This will begin warm advection and the start of temps pushing to at or above the norms. The upper ridge is progged to move to our east mid day Sunday. This will bring deep southwest flow and push H8 temps to around +20C. Surface temps well into the 80s should be seen Sunday and Monday. It appears the upper ridge will hold off any additional rain to our west through Monday.

Dry here too. I’ve been watering so the lawn is holding up. Yesterday and today is my kind of weather. Local met this morning said Monday may be out first 90° day (hit 88° here Sunday). I am not looking forward to that.

Dry here too. Enjoying the temps this week. With the heat wave coming next week I know the A/C will be cranked. I hope this 1xst heat wave is not a preview of what summer will be. I thought it was suppose to be on the cool side.

If we do indeed make it up to 90° this weekend for the first 90° day this summer it would be earlier than the “average” first 90° day (June 16th) the range has been from April 29th 1899 to August 11th 1907 we did not reach 90 in 2014 and… Read more »
