End of July, and not 90 degrees yet

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — So far in 2014, 90-degree warmth has been unusually elusive.

By this time during the summer of 2013, West Michigan had seen 90 degrees or warmer six times.

And the last time the region went this long into summer without hitting 90 degrees or warmer was 1989. That’s 25 years ago.

Grand Rapids weather records go back to the late 1800s, and in that time, only one summer went without a 90-degree reading: 1951.
