    39 on the therm this morning down in the front yard. Dry northerly flow has persisted all month long pretty much, allowing for cool nights and nice days. My average low temp month-to-date is 44 and despite all the rain south, only .58" all month here. Unsettled weather returns tomorrow and I'm very pleased by that. Also, I do not mind the late sunsets in summer. Actual dark only lasts here from 12:36 am - 3:07 am, before astronomical twilight begins. I wouldn't want to be in the central zone, which is just the county south of here, actually. Leaves usually are near peak the last week of Sept here, just 12 weeks away. Crazy to think about, but like I've said before... In the UP, winter is always coming. Enjoy the weekend everyone! With all the nice weather, already have about 70% of winter's firewood cut, split, and stacked!

    Might hit 60 today. If not, it'll be the fourth day in a row with highs in the 50's. Low temps for the entire month so far have been in the 40's (40's are the norm tho), with the exception of 2 nights in the 30's, and 2 nights it stayed in the mid-50's. Highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's for the next 7 days likely. Cool, crisp, and refreshing! As long as it's sunny, I'm cool. MQT just released the snowfall accum map from this past winter. I'm the black dot... I had estimated somewhere around 275".

    31 overnight. Glad I brought most plants inside and covered the rest. Hopefully this will be the last frost/freeze for a while. Leaf-out is about 50% now... And even with nearly 8" of rain in May haven't seen a skeeter yet! Very late start to bug season.

    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    With a total population in 2016 estimated at 141, I'm shocked.

    Spring is here and the green-up is starting. Gonna be gorgeous this weekend for the first big summer camping holiday. There's such a great feeling this time of the year! Season of lake breezes/shadows, sunny days, cool nights. Medicine for the soul MQT: ample WAA on Saturday looks to usher in highs well into the 70s for most locations, perhaps even cresting over the 80 degree mark in the south-central (Iron Mountain area). This would mean the Marquette area may finally break the record streak of not seeing 70 degrees, putting tomorrow at 249 days. Some warmth looks to continue into Sunday, with widespread 60s into the lower 70s, then tapering back off next week.

    Another heavy rain event with 4.35" in two days... brings the monthly total here to 7.40" Briefly sleeted hard enough yesterday afternoon to coat the ground white for a bit, mostly during heavier returns. Along with the rain and sleet, the temps stayed in the mid-30's with w/c's in the low and mid 20's. This was quite a storm for May. Also temps running -7.6 for the month, as well. Average temp has been 41. Not exactly my idea of an ideal spring. It has postponed bug season a little. Not even any mosquito's yet. Heck, even snow in places still. North edge of my property along the road this morning

    May 14th 2015 there were a couple inches that fell and in 2014 on the 15th and 16th of May, several inches fell, but if I see any accumulating snow tomorrow afternoon and evening, it will be the latest I can ever remember.

    Happy early birthday. I'll be 30 this year too! Your post makes me a little envious. It sounds like a perfect day. 38 with rain all day... 1.2" so far with another 2-3 inches in the forecast through tomorrow night. NAM is still insisting on enough cold air tomorrow afternoon for a changeover to snow. Wet and cool pattern looks to stick around up here.

    Rain moving in towards morning, possibly starting as snow here in the higher terrain areas... 2-3" of rain in the forecast this weekend, along with very chilly temps, wind chills. What a contrast tomorrow! (Point forecast has 39 for the high here)

    It's a long shot but wouldn't surprise me at all. The official forecast is pretty chilly already.

    May 8-9 Winter Storm

    No worries. It all averages out. In three weeks it'll look here, just like it does there. A 300" winter more than makes up for the extra month or so of old man winter taking swipes. I don't sit in the house waiting for an ideal temp to enjoy being outside, so I don't feel all cooped up or cabin feverish at the end of winter or ever. And in the spring, I enjoy being busy outside with temps in the 40's and 50's... it's comfortable. I spent most of my life living in the middle of a cornfield in Indiana. This IS an improvement!

    May 8-9 Winter Storm

    Snowed and sleeted heavy last night but by morning had changed over to all rain. A lull this afternoon, now fog and some light snow has moved back in. Total liquid for this storm so far is 1.78", with some of that a couple inches of wet snow. Total snow for May is now just over 10". Still waiting on spring to hatch, six weeks away from the Summer solstice.
