Ag. Weather Outlook 6-19-2014

by Tim Abramowski

In the southern two tiers of Michigan counties rains came fast, and in some cases furiously, Wednesday afternoon. As this happened, lightning left some in the dark. Some of the more impressive rainfall totals as collected at MSU weather station sites Oshtemo, an inch and two-tenths, Cassopolis, an inch and 81-hundredthsthree-quarters of an inch fell in Lawton on the Oxley farm while just over a half inch was recorded in Hastings and around a quarter of an inch in Grand Junction and Albion. The impressive downpours and electrical show not likely to be repeated today as most of the action stays off to our south but this evening and Friday could see storms ramping up once again. While severe weather isnt included in the outlook for the final day of the work week problems with standing water and lightning could again be with us. Showers this weekend now appear to be in the more isolated category as sunshine tries to take control. But showers and thunderstorms could make a return visit towards the start of next week.
