    Loving the next 2 weeks on the GFS. Looks like a steady supply of below normal temps.

    This month looks like a no-go. 1/3rd of met summer gone by that point.

    Been loving the lack of heat. Hopefully we can keep this going through summer.

    My lawn is in amazing shape right now. Usually I don't have this kind of lawn density until late September. The summer heat and dry spells usually set things back and by the time autumn arrives, grass conditions peak. Not this year.

    Lake affect for local climate

    Well, if you like sunny days in the winter it's better than Michigan. If you like snow, Wisconsin is mostly reliant on system snow, except the very northern 1/5th of the state.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    https://www.freep.com/story/weather/2019/05/14/80-degree-temperatures-metro-detroit/3666723002/ Summer-like, 80-degree weather typically arrives at the beginning of May. But this year, it has decided to make a late grand entrance, potentially for the first time in 20 years. May 17, 1999, was the last time southeast Michiganders experienced 80-degree weather this late in the spring. June 17, 1924, is the latest date on record for 80-degree weather to arrive in metro Detroit, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake.

    April 2019 Discussion

    Is there a way to lookup how much wind my area has averaged over a set time period and how that compares to normal. Weather is really important to my company and it seems like the last month has been an absolute wind-fest compared to normal. We can't go more than 2 days without extreme wind recently.

    April 14-15 Snow Potential

    My winter interests are -- big storms or nothing at all, with Christmas being the exception. My primary winter interest is always going to be for snow to my NW. I just can't do much with it locally.

    Winter 2018-19 Grade Thread

    Since I base my grade on northern Michigan and the UP.... I give it a B+. December dropped it 1 full grade.

    I told them to name the two guys who helped... they didn't even ask if we wanted to be named, the mine EMS said we would be "the 2 snowmobilers". The only part that's a bit exaggerated was the part where it said I collapsed.... the rest was pretty spot on.
