A Pink Lanscape At Sunset To Finish Our Day - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 5:28 PM GMT on September 04, 2015

After a continuous round of thunderstorms that moved through the state yesterday, the result was a rosie sunset.  Everything was pink for about 5 minutes, and fog really accentuated it.  Low pressure was parked right over our state and just sat there.  It is moving very slowly to the east today but is continuing to give us a chance for more showers and thunderstorms.  My area only received 0.28 inches but many areas of Michigan had well over an inch which ...

Rain and Fog To Start Our Sunday - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:10 PM GMT on August 30, 2015

Yesterday was wet and yucky for a late August day, but this week will be a big improvement for us.  Above-normal temps are expected most of the week and plenty of sun.  It was very foggy this morning but now the sun is beginning to break through and it should be a nice day. 
Right now (9 AM EDT), our temperature is 68F, the humidity is 99%, and winds are calm.  The pressure is 30.06 in and rising, and visibility is only 2 miles.  Skies are mostly clo...

An Overnight Thundershower Gives Way to a Sunny Morning - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:02 PM GMT on August 13, 2015

We sat outdoors last night until about 1 AM looking for the meteor showers but didn't see much. I guess they become more frequent around 3-4 AM, but who wants to be out there at that time of the morning. I sure don't. At any rate, they weren't very impressive. I woke to the sound of thunder around 4 AM and realized that there wouldn't be any visible meteor showers anyway. I checked the radar on my iPhone and found a storm which was moving from north to so...

Near Perfect Weather in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 12:48 PM GMT on August 05, 2015

We have had wonderful weather since Sunday and it should continue for another few days at least.  Our highs are only in the mid 70s to around 80F, and nights are in the 50s.  That's perfect weather for me.  I always love it when we can have the windows open and air out the house.  Today is expected to be dry and close to perfect for a summer day.  There are no complaints from me.
Right now (8:45 AM EDT), our temp is 60F, the humid...

Finally, Some Normal Summer Weather in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:13 PM GMT on July 22, 2015

The past few days have been very nice with normal temperatures for a change and plenty of sun. Hopefully, it will be a while before we have anymore hard rain. My husband sprayed the yard for mosquitoes and that seemed to have taken care of that problem. I can't remember when mosquitoes have ever been as bad as this year. The next few days should be sunny and warm but Saturday brings another chance for rain. Hopefully, it will be light if it happens at all...
