GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — It has been a windy, rainy, and chilly few days in West Michigan.

Grand Rapids reported rainfall for nine days in a row bringing rain totals well over an inch. The streak could end Thursday as the area dries out into the weekend.

Despite the several new inches of rain, some cities remain in a deficit. Grand Rapids has seen over 31 inches so far this year, but that is about an inch below normal. Kalamazoo and Holland are trending nearly two inches or more below average.

All things considered, West Michigan is actually in good shape compared to the rest of the country. There is no drought here at this time, which is not the case for much of the United States. As of Oct. 20, 82% of the country is suffering from drought conditions.

A quiet pattern looks to settle in for much of the central part of the United States. The Pacific Northwest should be more active by the end of the month.
