Living in Michigan can be exciting. We can have every weather condition known to man happening in the State at one time.

Although we were under a severe thunderstorm watch most of the afternoon and evening yesterday, there was no severe weather here in my backyard. We received .44" of rain and most of that fell overnight. The dopplar was filled with reds and yellows most of the night, but the heavy stuff missed us this time. I'm seeing rain amounts well over an inch on the CoCoRahs reports this morning in different areas of the state. There are two reports of almost two inches in both Midland and DeWitt. Big Rapids had reports of flash floods with flooded roadways and floating cars. They also reported wind damage from the storms as did Ludington.
This morning is overcast and very damp. Conditions are expected to improve by this afternoon with winds turning to the north and temps remaining near 80F. That should rid us of much of this humidity.
Right now (8:15 AM), our temp is 71.8F, the humidity is 100%, winds are from the south at 7 mph and visibility is only 4 miles due to light fog. The barometer is 29.65" and rising.
