A Severe Weather Sunday in Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:55 PM GMT on July 28, 2014


Although the brunt of our storms amounted to heavy rain, some hail and strong winds, my area escaped the worst that Mother Nature dealt out yesterday afternoon.  Areas just north of Detroit seemed to be hardest hit with many large trees falling on houses, lightning strikes and street flooding. A few areas in the thumb region also had many trees down and other property damage done from strong winds.  Needless to say, there are many without electricity this mo...

Overnight Thunderstorms Drench Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 3:14 PM GMT on July 13, 2014


Our Sunday morning is beginning with very warm temps.  Our 9:30 AM temp is already 73F.  We had more heavy thunderstorms move over the state overnight giving us 0.53" of rainfall. Some areas received over 2 inches.  I notice that some of the leaves on my flowers are turning yellow, probably from being overwatered.  We didn't receive any severe storms but rain is something that we don't need anymore of for a while.  We have already received 3.18" of rain t...

More Rain For Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 2:38 PM GMT on June 03, 2014


Today is starting out with some wonderful sunshine but the mosquitoes are too bad to go out and enjoy it.  Once again, we were hit with a deluge yesterday.  In face, it was raining so hard for a few minutes that I couldn't see out my windows.  It looked like a "white-out" in winter.  There wasn't much in terms of thunder/lightning but the rain and winds were hard and strong.  We received 0.68" in about 15 minutes and a total of 0.78" by the time it was fi...

The Start of a Beautiful Memorial Day Weekend - Michigan

By: chatcat, 4:41 PM GMT on May 24, 2014


This morning is perfectly clear, temperatures are comfortable, and winds are very light.  It's a perfect day, something that we find quite rare these days.  Leaves on some trees are out full while others are barely visible.  I think that they are still shocked from the winter and spring that we have had here in Michigan.  But hopefully that is all behind us.
