Saturday – I’m out at GVSU for Science Olympiad. I’ll update again in the evening. Friday, I was the emcee for the annual dinner and auction for St. John’s School in Grand Haven. We’ll have a few rain/snow showers coming thru…maybe a random area of fog…a rather dreary day. Tomorrow (Sun.) will be the better half of the weekend.
I appreciate those who emailed that they had thunder and small hail. It’s always nice to get ground confirmation of what we see on radar.
Overnight model data: NAM high temps for G.R. for the next 3 days 41/45/48. The GFS highs for G.R. starting with today are 44/47/49/49/40/49/63/53. The chance of rain comes today…Monday and next Friday….which we’ve been focusing on for the last few days as being the warmest day of the week ahead.
