Last Day of ArtPrize

Today is the last day of ArtPrize.  We’ve got a partly to mostly sunny and warm start to the week.  The morning run of the GFS model gives G.R. high temps. of 77 – 69 for Mon. and Tues., with the best chance of rain on Tues. night and Weds.

Here’s an early PM shot from the S. Haven lighthouse (from NOAA Coastwatch).  Waves the S. Haven buoy are down to 2 feet and they are running 3-4 feet (and diminishing) from Muskegon to the north.  The air temp. at the Muskegon Beach is 66 at 1:30 pm.  Inland temps. have risen into the low-mid 70s.  The early afternoon water temp. of Reeds Lake is 69.  Buoy water temps:  S. Haven 63.9, Port Sheldon 64.4, Muskegon 62.6 and Ludington 63.9.

  If you look toward the SE horizon, you can see the back edge high clouds from now Tropical Depression Nate, which as I write this is moving through the Tennessee Valley toward New England.  This has been a fast-moving storm…so rainfall amounts have not been as heavy as Harvey or Irma.
Central Great Lakes sector loop  Here’s live radar…showing the rains from Nate getting up into Indiana and Ohio…but not West Michigan.
