  3. Late Monday I had a surprise. It started getting warm in the house and guess what, right in the middle of a hot night the AC went out. I called the people who put our furnace/AC in and they were able to come out yesterday afternoon and fix the AC. The fan motor just died. Well we survived yesterday and the AC is now back on.

It is now getting noticeable dry and the grass is turning brown in many areas. I was kind of surprised to see the NWS issue a EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH for our area. I may be wrong but I do not recall there ever being such a watch for our area. We shall see how this plays out. If we do indeed have a week of highs in the 90's that is kind of rare in out area any time and more so in mid June. Some mid June heat waves were in 1987 and 1994.

The most rain fall of 2.51” fell in 2010. Last year the H/L was 75/50. We are now near the halfway point of June 2024 and so far this month is near average at Grand Rapids. The mean is now at 66.8 that is a departure from average of just +0.1. The high so far has been 87 on the 13th and the low for the month should be 45 on the 11th It has been a dry month so far with just 0.83” that is a departure of -1.05” The 2nd half of the month should be warmer than average.
  9. With highs at Grand Rapids being forecasted in the mid 90's next week and low in the low to mid 70's will there be any new records set? At Grand Rapids the record highs and the warmest lows are. For Monday 95 for the high 73 for the low. For Tuesday 96 and 73 and for Wednesday 98 and 77. The record for the 19th looks safe. The 17th and 18 could be closer
