Relief From High Humidity And High Temps In Southern California

Posted by Leon Dabbs on August 2, 2015 at 2:48am 0 Comments

Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms will form over the Sierra and over the deserts bordering Nevada and Arizona today as southeast flow aloft continues over these areas.  The flow aloft will become southwest across the entire region Sunday causing afternoon showers and thunderstorms to become isolated and focused from the Sierra Crest eastward.  All shower and thunderstorm activity will come to an end by Monday as it will be the second day in a row of southwest flow aloft.  Temperatures will cool a couple of degrees this weekend as high pressure weakens and shifts to the southeast.  Minimum humidity will be mainly between 15% and 30% away from the coastal areas.  Tempe

Typical Summer Day For Our First Day of August - Mid Michigan

Posted by Cathie Ursu on August 1, 2015 at 9:18am 0 Comments

Summer is certainly upon us with continuous highs in the 80s and plenty of sun.  We love it.  Today will continue to have a slight chance of a pop up shower or storm, but they all missed us yesterday.  We seem to be an area where the storms form, then hit the areas to our southeast.  The storms that there were yesterday didn't drop much rain since they were very brief, and that will probably be the scenario for today also.

Right now (9 AM EDT), our temp is 68F, the humidity is 56%, and the pressure is 29.91" and steady.  Skies are clear and winds are from the west at 7 mph.  The dew point is 53F and visibility is 10 miles.  Yesterday's high was 83F and the overnight low was 62F.

OUR FORECAST:

Today: Mostly sunny,…
