  1. I would like to add that as has been the case several times already this fall season the high for the date has been before sun rise.

To the north at Big Rapids the high there so far is 58. Down at Benton Harbor the high got up to 74 late last night and is still at 70.

  8. Brett Anderson came out with his 2020/21 winter guess. While his guess is for Canada for those of us living in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Dakotas there is enough of a over lap that his guess get into our area. His guess is pointing towards a warm winter with less snow for much of our area. Here is his summery for the winter season. “Overall, in terms of temperatures, the core of the Arctic air is expected to hang out across northern BC and the Yukon Territory, though there certainly can be brief spells of bitterly cold air through the Prairies and into eastern Canada.

  9. At this time Grand Rapids is on track of having its coldest October since 2008. In the past there has not been a clear path that a cold October leads to a cold or snowy winter. The fall color here NW of Grand Rapids is still very good to in places great. There are now some trees that have lost all of their leaves thought. At this time it is cloudy and 43 here at my house.

  11. Light rain has just started here. With that light rain the current temperature here is 51. And the low for today so far is that 51. And the high so far has been 55.
  12. There were 2 periods of small hail here yesterday the first one in the morning the hail fell very hard and covered the ground for a short while. The 2nd last night was hail mixed with heavy rain. Also there were a few flashes of lightning here last night with the temperatures in the upper 30’s I had a total of 0.17” of rain mixed with hail. The low here last night for the 2nd night in a row was 30 at this time it is cloudy and 37.
  13. Just had a heavy shower with a lot of small hail here there was only 0.03" of rain/hail that fell as it only lasted about five minutes or so.
  14. I had a brief shower of 0.01" yesterday just the clearing came in. I also had the first freeze of the season here at my house with a low of 29. At this time there is some frost and the temperature is 32 with clear skies.
