The End to our Drought in Mid Michigan
After spring and most of the summer seeing temperatures much above normal and very dry conditions, Michigan was finally relieved of it's drought over the past two days. My area received a total of 2.74" of rain while areas near Bay City and Midland saw as much as 8 inches. Rainfall was abundant over much of the state bringing scorched lawns back to life. This is more rain than we have seen in the past three months and more is expected this week.
Tomorrow will be the pick day of our weekend with sunny skies expected and highs in the upper 70s. The temp was expected to reach 70F today but it never made it out of the 60s. The cloudy and damp conditions were a benefit for the moisture-starved vegetation. It is our hopes that rain will be a frequent visitor in the weeks ahead.
