Only topped out at 79. It's the highest temp of this month it's going to get for the foreseeable future. Let the Washout Week begin!

Surprised you're not writing off the whole month yet.

There was a conveyor belt of pure rain just miles to the north for half the day with a nice gradient by evening. While I had peaks of sunshine it was steady rain 30 minutes north. My temp really shot up mid-morning from 52F to 68F in just a few hours. The evening was good but increasing clouds then some lightning streaks and rain a hour ago. I'm just happy I wasn't in the belt's path.

Let's say May is 100% done.


Time to root for the May 2003 analog!

May 2003 had a record 21 days with measurable rainfall the entire month.

Anyone know a GFS sample output site similar to wxweb.meteostar.com/sample ?  Looks like they shut down and I like the tabulated data it had.

Looks like some frost and maybe freeze potential in the near future.  Right now Saturday morning and Monday morning look the coldest for this particular area.  I know a lot of peeps in this area have already planted some things, so good chance they'll be covering them up those nights.

Running a bit late but baby leaves on the new white oak have finally opened.  This innocent looking little 5ft tree could still be standing and thriving 300-400 years from now if all goes well, it's a very long-living tree if allowed to thrive.

Many brrs in Northern/Central Lower MI tonight and tomorrow night

And not just there. Forecast low of 34° here in White Lake, and more of the same into the weekend.

Early May has been cold in recent years

I think LOT needs to seriously consider a freeze warning around here tonight.  Had a low of 34 this morning and the airmass tonight is colder aloft and with good radiational cooling again.

They went frost advisory.

Personally I'd prepare for the possibility of temps aob 32.  I think there's a good chance we see that and more than just hyper localized, but we'll see.

I think I had one around May 20, 2002.  Can't remember the exact date.
