Ice-Cold Great Lakes May Bring Pretty Miserable Monday

April 5th, 2014 at 12:34 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

It is a nice day!  With skies going mostly sunny, highs of 48-55 look good today.  After frost & 27-31 tonight, highs of 54-61 look good tomorrow with mostly sunny skies.

After 35-40 Sunday night with increasing clouds, showers will move in Monday.

We need to watch & monitor whether heavier rainfall moves northward.  Right now, looks like 0.25-0.50″ of rainfall, but +1″ south of here are not that far away.

It also appears that we may develop a pretty stiff northeast to north wind Monday.  This could push the unusually cold air over the Great Lakes (ice cold water with ice floes) southward into our area.  If that happens, we may level off in the mid 40s Monday.  This would make for a pretty miserable, gloomy, cold day.

The unusually cold water with ice over the lakes & unusually deep snow pack northwest & north of here is new forecasting territory for me, as I have never seen the likes of it in my life-time (last time was late 1970s & early 1980s)………..somewhat in 1994 & 1996 spring.

After a few lingering showers Tuesday with 50s, we’ll warm with sun to 55-60 Wednesday & 65-70 Thursday & 63-68 Friday with sun.  Thursday will be very windy with gusts to 45 mph possible.

    As you stated in the past Chad, whenever the weather presents a new challenge to the already difficult job of forecasting you welcome it as an opportunity to learn. The next time it happens you will at least recognize the territory.

    After a low this morning of 34.1* is has warmed to 49.1*. The pup took me for a walk today. The sunshine felt great. It was little chilly on the upwind legs. It was also a quiet walk. Well except for the barking at the squirrels. Not me the dog. I’m ready to hear the sounds of outdoor activity and smells of barbecuing and freshly cut grass. And NO rain!
