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.

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 this month and we are only half way through July. Our normal rainfall for July is 3.12". The Weather Service gave us hope of having a milder winter this year, but now they are saying that the expected El Nino will not be as strong as what was first indicated. So what does that mean for us?
Right now (9:45 AM EDT), our temp is 73F, skies are mostly cloudy, and the humidity is 68%. Visibility is 10 miles. The dew point is 61F and the UV is 3 out of 16. The barometric pressure is on the rise at 29.86 inches.
Today: Partly cloudy with a high of 82F. Winds W at 10-20 mph.
Tonight: A few clouds. Low 59F Winds W at 10-15 mph.
Monday: Intervals of clouds and sun. High 77F. Winds WSW at 10-15 mph.
Monday Night: Partly cloudy early, then increasing clouds with periods of rain after midnight. Low 54F. Winds WNW at 5-10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.
Tuesday: Intervals of clouds and sun. High 69F. Winds WNW at 10-20 mph.
Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low 51F. Winds NW at 10-15 mph.
HAVE A NICE
