South Haven sunset four 8 8 18_1533787229991.png.jpg

Top pic. is sunset at South Haven Wed. evening (8/8/18).  In the 69 days we’ve had since June 1, forty have been warmer than average in G.R., 26 have been cooler than average and 3 were exactly average.  These 69 days have been 1.9° warmer than average.  We’ve had 17 days that have reached 90° in G.R., but none warmer than 94°  The warmest 24-Hour day relative to average was June 30th (high 94, low 78).

This pretty pic. is from our East Grand Rapids webcam Wed. evening (8/8/18).  Rainfall since 6/1 has totaled 6.01″ in Grand Rapids – that’s 2.46″ below average.  Kalamazoo has had 8.82″ of rain since 6/1 and that’s 0.77″ above average.  We’ve had 58.4% of possible sunshine. 

Here’s a wider view of the South Haven sunset on Wed. 8/8/18.  I want to point out that because it’s warmer than average this summer, it does NOT mean we’re going to have a warm winter.  More on that later.
