This is sunrise this AM in Seattle, Washington with the tall buildings poking out of the fog. You can see Mt. Rainier to the left of the sun (pic. from the Seattle NWS).
While Seattle is a cloudy place in late fall and winter, even Seattle can’t top the cloudy November we are having in W. Michigan. We’ve had just 9% of possible sunshine. Much of that sun came on just one day (the 14th). We also had 14 consecutive days that have been colder than average and the last two weeks have been 9 degrees colder than average.
This was shortly after sunset this evening (11 20 18) at South Haven. The mid-Lake Michigan buoy is still out there and it was showing a water temp. of 44.4° this afternoon. With winds picking up, there’s a Small Craft Advisory for the lakeshore until 5 pm Wednesday.
This is the Holiday Tree at The Butler Restaurant in Saugatuck. The Holiday Tree in Grand Rapids will be lit by WOOD TV and Eva Aguirre Cooper on Dec. 3 during our 5:30 pm newscast. The Kalamazoo Annual Tree Lighting will be this Friday (the 23rd) at 5 pm. Our own Maranda will have the countdown, which you can see on 24 Hour News 8. Also – Friday you can see the tree lit up in East Grand Rapids at around 6:30 pm. Monday evening the 26th, we have the Zeeland Christmas Parade, the 54th Annual Christmas Parade in Marshall and the tree lightning in Cannonsburg. Tuesday the 27th is the annual Parade of Lights in Holland. Thursday the 29th you can see the tree lightning in Hudsonville and in Eastown (S.E Gr. Rapids). Friday the 30th is the Albion Aglow Parade, the Rockford Holiday Lighting and the Grandville Christmas Parade. Lots to enjoy this Christmas Holiday Season in West Michigan.
