Chance of Showers or a T-Shower – Updated Early Thu.

Bill's Blog

(side note – I have 2 cats…not these cats, but I liked the pic). We continue the chance of a shower or even an isolated thundershower today. Much of the day it will not be raining. Winds will be light from the east-northeast. Here’s a link to a satellite pic. Temperatures for most of the day will be in the low-mid 70s.

Here’s G.R. Radar:

Here’s the Lake Express Ferry leaving the Muskegon Channel (Wed.) at 10:20 AM:

Winds are east and that may cause colder water to come up to the surface at the West Michigan beaches. That’s called upwelling. Water temps. Wed. AM included 63 at Muskegon, 58 at Duck Lake and 66 at Saugatuck. All of those are down since Tuesday. Inland lakes will have warmer water.

It was cool up north Wed. AM. The low temp. at Baraga Plains in the U.P. was just 34°. Doe Lake and Wakefield dropped to 38°.
