I live right in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Our Great Lakes protect us from much of the extreme weather in other states.

Mother Nature is finally being kind to us this week. We are having seasonable weather for the first time in about 5 months. I see folks out there with no coats although that's stretching it a bit in my opinion, but the sun really does feel very warm in spite of the chilly breeze. Late yesterday, the sky looked like it was trying a brew a shower or two but nothing happened. We are happy for that because we certainly don't need anymore water to add to the mud that we have.
Right now (2:15 PM EDT), our temperature is 56F, the humidity is 25% and skies are mostly clear. The pressure is 29.99 inches and steady. Visibility is 10 miles. and the dew point is 21F.
