There’s a Dense Fog Advisory this early morning for much of N. Indiana and the Michigan counties that border Indiana until 9 am. Fog should dissipate and give us partly sunny skies and pleasantly warm temps. in the PM.
This is a pic. around sunset from the S. Haven buoy camera. Waves at the time were 4″ – so the lake was pretty flat. Overnight model data shows high temps. from the mid 70s to mid 80s over the next 8 days with the chance of rain coming late Sun. to early Mon. and again on Weds. We could use the rain.
This is the latest 8-14 day temperature forecast from the Climate Prediction Center for Sept. 21-27. The pattern has reversed and it’ll be warm in the East and cool in the West. The warmth here is weighted toward the early half of that 6-day period. I think we’ll see a trend to cooler weather in the Great Lakes around the 25th or 26th. It should be a warm (and maybe wet) start to Art Prize next Weds.
The Ionia County Health Department is advising people to stay away from scummy water in Long Lake following the discovery of toxic algae. (note – the pic. is NOT from Long Lake, but toxic algae in Lake Erie).
