...GREAT LAKES WATER LEVELS REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL IN JULY...

PLENTIFUL RAINFALL OVER THE NORTHWEST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN AS WELL
AS ACROSS MOST OF NORTHERN MINNESOTA AND ADJOINING ONTARIO IN JUNE
AND JULY CAUSED LAKE SUPERIOR LEVELS TO RISE DURING JULY. AT THE END
OF JULY, WATER LEVELS ON LAKE SUPERIOR WERE 7 TO 8 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL AND WITHIN AN INCH OF THE LEVEL OBSERVED IN JULY 2015.
SINCE PRECIPITATION IN THE BASINS THAT FEED LAKES MICHIGAN AND HURON
WAS NOT AS HEAVY AS TO THE NORTHWEST, THE LEVEL OF THOSE LAKES
REMAINED NEARLY STEADY DURING JULY. EVEN SO, THE LEVEL ON LAKES
MICHIGAN AND HURON WAS 10 TO 11 INCHES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 7/31 AND
4 TO 5 INCHES HIGHER THAN IN JULY 2015.

                        JULY CLIMATE HIGHLIGHTS

HIGHEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...96 AT STONINGTON IN DELTA COUNTY
                                ON 7/22

LOWEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...30 NEAR NEWBERRY ON 7/16

HIGHEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...69.6 DEGREES AT IRON MOUNTAIN AND
                               NORWAY IN DICKINSON COUNTY

LOWEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...63.1 DEGREES AT HERMAN IN BARAGA COUNTY

HIGHEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...6.28 INCHES AT BERGLAND DAM IN
                                 ONTONAGON COUNTY

LOWEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...2.32 INCHES AT IRON MOUNTAIN

EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE COOL PERIODS IN JULY, MAINLY DURING THE FIRST
HALF OF THE MONTH WHEN UPPER TROUGHING TENDED TO PREVAIL MORE OFTEN
THAN NOT ACROSS THE EAST HALF OF NORTH AMERICA, THE WEEK FROM 7/20
THROUGH 7/26 WAS SO WARM UNDER A DOMINATING UPPER RIDGE OVER THE
CENTRAL U.S. THAT THE MONTH AS A WHOLE ENDED UP ABOUT 0.5 TO 1.5
DEGREES WARMER THAN NORMAL AT MOST PLACES IN UPPER MICHIGAN. MEAN
JULY TEMPERATURES RANGING BETWEEN ABOUT 63 AND 70 DEGREES WERE 4 TO
8 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THE JUNE AVERAGES.

DURING THE WARM FOURTH WEEK OF JULY, AT LEAST ONE SPOT SAW THE
MERCURY RISE TO OR ABOVE THE 90-DEGREE MARK ON EACH DAY FROM 7/20
THROUGH 7/23 AND ON 7/26. STONINGTON IN DELTA COUNTY REPORTED THE
WARMEST TEMPERATURE, A TOASTY 96 ON 7/22. MINIMUM TEMPERATURES ON
7/21, 7/22, AND 7/24 HELD IN THE UNCOMFORTABLE LOWER 70S AT SOME
LOCATIONS. A FEW PLACES ALSO REPORTED A MAXIMUM OF 90 ON 7/13.
DURING THE COOLER MORNINGS ON 7/2, 7/3, 7/16, 7/19, AND 7/29, THE
THERMOMETER READ IN THE CHILLY 30S AT SOME OF THE COOLER INTERIOR
LOCATIONS OF THE U.P.

AS IS TYPICAL DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS, MONTHLY PRECIPITATION ACROSS
UPPER MICHIGAN IN JULY 2016 WAS VARIABLE BECAUSE OF THE HIT-OR-MISS
NATURE OF THE CONVECTIVE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT PREVAIL
DURING THE WARM SEASON. BUT SINCE THE CHANGEABLE PATTERN TENDED TO
BE AN ACTIVE ONE, MOST LOCATIONS ENDED UP WITH ABOVE NORMAL
RAINFALL. LOCATIONS OVER THE WEST NEAR IRONWOOD AND ONTONAGON TENDED
TO BE THE WETTEST, MAINLY DUE TO A CLUSTER OF STRONG TO SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS THAT DROPPED TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS ON THAT AREA DURING
THE EARLY MORNING ON 7/12. MONTHLY RAINFALL TOTALS IN THIS AREA WERE
IN EXCESS OF 6 INCHES AT MANY PLACES, AROUND 150 PERCENT OF THE JULY
NORMAL. IRON MOUNTAIN REPORTED THE LEAST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION WITH
2.32 INCHES, ABOUT ONLY 2/3 OF THE TYPICAL JULY RAINFALL AT THAT
SITE.

MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINS ASSOCIATED WITH COMPLEXES OF THUNDERSTORMS
PASSING THROUGH THE UPPER GREAT LAKES OCCURRED FAIRLY REGULARLY OVER
UPPER MICHIGAN IN JULY. DURING THE NIGHT ON 7/5-7/6, A CLUSTER OF
SHOWERS AND STORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A PASSING DISTURBANCE IMPACTED
MAINLY THE WEST HALF. RAINFALL TOTALS DURING THIS EVENT REACHED 1.78
INCHES AT BERGLAND DAM IN ONTONAGON COUNTY AND 1.51 INCHES NEAR
BARAGA. THE STRONGER STORMS ALSO CAUSED SOME DAMAGING WIND GUSTS IN
EXCESS OF 50 MPH.

THE PASSAGE OF ANOTHER STRONG DISTURBANCE AND LOW PRESSURE TROUGH ON
7/8 CAUSED ANOTHER ROUND OF LOCALLY HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS MAINLY EASTERN UPPER MICHIGAN. IN ADDITION TO THE HEAVY RAIN
THAT WAS AS MUCH AS 2.46 INCHES NEAR MANISTIQUE, ONE OF THE STRONGER
STORMS CAUSED A WEAK TORNADO NEAR NEWBERRY. THE SAME STORM
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HEAVY RAINS AT MANISTIQUE CAUSED SOME WIND
DAMAGE IN THAT AREA AS WELL. SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS ALSO
DROPPED HAIL UP TO AN INCH IN DIAMETER IN A SWATH FROM MARQUETTE TO
MANISTIQUE.

THE ARRIVAL OF A WARM AND HUMID AIRMASS ON 7/11 SET THE STAGE FOR
ANOTHER ROUND OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAIN OVER
THE WEST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN. SEVERAL BANDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS
IMPACTED THIS AREA ON 7/11 AND INTO THE MORNING ON 7/12. THE MOST
INTENSE STORMS OCCURRED DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON 7/12 IN
GOGEBIC AND ONTONAGON COUNTIES. THERE WERE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS UP
TO 90 MPH NEAR WAKEFIELD AS WELL AS AN EF1 TORNADO NEAR BESSEMER IN
GOGEBIC COUNTY. HEAVY RAINS IN EXCESS OF 2 INCHES FELL AT SOME
PLACES IN GOGEBIC AND ONTONAGON COUNTIES, WITH UNOFFICIAL REPORTS UP
TO 10 INCHES OF RAIN IN WESTERN GOGEBIC COUNTY. THESE HEAVY RAINS
CAUSED SOME FLASH FLOODING IN AREAS WEST OF IRONWOOD.

SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH SOME LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS
DEVELOPED DURING THE AFTERNOON ON 7/16 AS WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR
FLOWED AGAIN INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES. AS MUCH AS 2.64 INCHES OF
RAIN INUNDATED GLADSTONE IN DELTA COUNTY. AN AREA OF WIDESPREAD RAIN
IMPACTED MAINLY THE EAST HALF DURING THE MORNING ON 7/17 AND DROPPED
OVER AN INCH OF RAIN AT SOME PLACES, INCLUDING 1.65 INCHES AT
MUNISING. THE RETURN OF SOME SUNSHINE DURING THE AFTERNOON ON 7/17
FUELED THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOME SEVERE STORMS IN BARAGA AND MARQUETTE
COUNTIES, WHERE THERE WAS WIND DAMAGE ASSOCIATED WITH THE STRONGER
STORMS.

ANOTHER ROUND OF SEVERE STORMS ROLLED INTO WESTERN UPPER MICHIGAN
AROUND SUNRISE ON 7/21, CAUSING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS UP TO 90 MPH AND
SOME HEAVY RAIN WEST OF A LINE FROM MARQUETTE TO IRON MOUNTAIN UNTIL
THE STORMS WEAKENED AROUND MID-MORNING. BERGLAND DAM LED REPORTING
STATIONS WITH 1.43 INCHES OF RAIN.

                         JULY WEATHER SUMMARY

JULY BEGAN ON A DRY AND COOL NOTE AS CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE BUILT
INTO THE GREAT LAKES. UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS, SOME
OF THE COOLER INTERIOR LOCATIONS SAW THE MERCURY DIP INTO THE 30S
NEAR SUNRISE ON 7/2 AND 7/3. THE LOWEST READINGS WERE 38 AT
STAMBAUGH IN IRON COUNTY ON 7/2 AND 38 AT A COOL SPOT NEAR NEWBERRY
EARLY ON 7/3. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON THE 7/1 AND 7/2 WERE AROUND
5 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL BUT THEN RECOVERED TO NEAR AVERAGE ON 7/3 AS
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES REBOUNDED INTO THE 80S AWAY FROM LAKE
MODERATION. THE JULY FOURTH HOLIDAY FEATURED PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY
AND PLEASANTLY WARM SUMMER WEATHER ALONG WITH A DAILY AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE WITHIN A FEW DEGREES OF NORMAL. AS THE HIGH PRESSURE
SHIFTED TO THE EAST, A STRENGTHENING SOUTHWEST FLOW ON ITS WESTERN
FLANK BROUGHT A RETURN OF WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR ON 7/5 THAT
LIFTED THE DAILY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE TO AROUND 5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.

DURING THE NIGHT ON 7/5-7/6, A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND STORMS
ASSOCIATED WITH A PASSING DISTURBANCE IMPACTED PORTIONS OF WESTERN
UPPER MICHIGAN. RAINFALL TOTALS DURING THIS EVENT REACHED 1.78
INCHES AT BERGLAND DAM IN ONTONAGON COUNTY AND 1.51 INCHES NEAR
BARAGA. PRECIPITATION TOTALS UNDER THE AXIS OF HEAVIER RAIN FROM
ONTONAGON TO BARAGA AND MARQUETTE EXCEEDED AN INCH AT MANY PLACES.
THE STRONGER STORMS IN THIS AREA ALSO CAUSED SOME DAMAGING WIND
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH. PRECIPITATION TOTALS AWAY FROM THE AXIS
OF HEAVIER RAIN WERE GENERALLY UNDER 0.25 INCH. ALTHOUGH A FEW MORE
THUNDERSTORMS POPPED UP OVER THE SOUTH CENTRAL IN THE AFTERNOON ON
7/6 AFTER THE MORNING CLOUDS GAVE WAY TO SOME CLEARING, MOST PLACES
WERE THEN DRY THROUGH 7/7 AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILT INTO ONTARIO. THERE
WAS PATCHY DENSE FOG, MAINLY NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR ON 7/6 INTO THE
MORNING ON 7/7. MORE CLOUDS AND EVEN SOME SHOWERS ROLLED BACK OVER
UPPER MICHIGAN LATER ON 7/7 AND INTO THE NIGHT ON 7/7-7/8 AHEAD OF
THE NEXT UPPER AIR DISTURBANCE MOVING EAST FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS.
DAILY AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ON 7/6 AND 7/7 WERE NEAR NORMAL.

THE PASSAGE OF THIS NEXT STRONG DISTURBANCE AND LOW PRESSURE TROUGH
ON 7/8 CAUSED ANOTHER ROUND OF LOCALLY HEAVY SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MAINLY EASTERN UPPER MICHIGAN. IN ADDITION TO
THE HEAVY RAIN THAT WAS AS MUCH AS 2.46 INCHES NEAR MANISTIQUE, ONE
OF THE STRONGER STORMS CAUSED A WEAK TORNADO NEAR NEWBERRY. THE SAME
STORM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HEAVY RAINS AT MANISTIQUE CAUSED SOME WIND
DAMAGE IN THAT AREA AS WELL. SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS ALSO
DROPPED HAIL UP TO AN INCH IN DIAMETER IN A SWATH FROM MARQUETTE TO
MANISTIQUE. MOST PLACES LOGGED 0.25 TO 0.75 INCH OF RAIN ON 7/8.
PATCHY DENSE FOG IMPACTED AREAS NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR AS NORTH WINDS
DREW RAIN-MOISTENED AIR ONSHORE. THE APPROACH OF A HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGE DURING THE NIGHT ON 7/8-7/9 BROUGHT CLEARING SKIES AND THEN
MOSTLY SUNNY, COOL WEATHER ON 7/9 AS GUSTY NORTH WINDS ADVECTED
CANADIAN AIR INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES. THE HIGH PRESSURE AND
TRANQUIL WEATHER LINGERED INTO 7/10, BUT THEN CLOUDS IN ADVANCE OF
AN APPROACHING WARM FRONT BEGAN TO ROLL BACK OVER THE U.P. SOME
SHOWERS ARRIVED NEAR THE WISCONSIN BORDER LATE IN THE DAY AND
PERSISTED OVER MAINLY THE SOUTH CENTRAL COUNTIES DURING THE NIGHT ON
7/10-7/11. THE MERCURY AVERAGED FROM NEAR NORMAL TO ABOUT 5 DEGREES
BELOW NORMAL ON 7/8 THROUGH 7/10.

THE ARRIVAL OF A WARM AND HUMID AIRMASS WITH GUSTY SOUTH WINDS UP TO
25 MPH BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE IN THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES AND LOW
PRESSURE IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS ON 7/11 SET THE STAGE FOR ANOTHER
ROUND OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAIN OVER THE WEST
HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN. SEVERAL BANDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS AHEAD OF
LOW PRESSURE IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS LOW IMPACTED THIS AREA ON 7/11
AND INTO THE MORNING ON 7/12. THE MOST INTENSE STORMS OCCURRED DURING
THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON 7/12 IN GOGEBIC AND ONTONAGON COUNTIES.
THERE WERE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS UP TO 90 MPH NEAR WAKEFIELD AS WELL AS
AN EF1 TORNADO NEAR BESSEMER IN GOGEBIC COUNTY. HEAVY RAINS IN EXCESS
OF 2 INCHES FELL AT SOME PLACES IN GOGEBIC AND ONTONAGON COUNTIES.
IRONWOOD REPORTED THE MOST PRECIPITATION WITH 2.61 INCHES, BUT THERE
WERE UNOFFICIAL REPORTS OF UP TO 10 INCHES OF RAIN IN WESTERN GOGEBIC
COUNTY. THESE HEAVY RAINS CAUSED SOME FLASH FLOODING IN AREAS WEST OF
IRONWOOD. GUSTY WEST WINDS UP TO 25 TO 30 MPH DURING THE DAY ON 7/12
BROUGHT A RETURN OF SOME DRIER AIR AND MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES BY THE
AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES AWAY FROM MODERATION OFF THE GREAT LAKES
PEAKED WELL IN THE 80S AND CLOSE TO 90. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON
7/11 WERE UP TO 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL AND THEN AROUND 10 DEGREES
ABOVE AVERAGE ON 7/12.

A STEADY WEST TO SOUTHWEST WIND TO THE SOUTHEAST OF LOW PRESSURE
MOVING THROUGH ONTARIO BROUGHT A WARM OVERNIGHT ON 7/12-7/13 DESPITE
MOSTLY CLEAR WEATHER. WITH A GOOD DEAL OF SUNSHINE THROUGH THE
MORNING, HIGH TEMPERATURES ON 7/13 ROSE WELL INTO THE 80S AWAY FROM
MODERATION OFF LAKE MICHIGAN AND AS HIGH AS 91 AT MUNISING.
SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING AS HIGH AS 35 TO 40 MPH TOOK A BIT OF THE
EDGE OFF OF THE HEAT. THIS DAYTIME HEATING CAUSED SOME SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO ERUPT IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING, MAINLY NEAR
LAKE SUPERIOR. MORE SHOWERS AND STORMS ARRIVED OVER THE WEST HALF
DURING THE NIGHT ON 7/13-7/14 AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
THIS FRONT AND A TRAILING LOW PRESSURE TROUGH CAUSED LOTS OF CLOUDS
AND SCATTERED SHOWERS TO LINGER THROUGH 7/14. THE DAY ON 7/14 WAS
MUCH COOLER AS NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING TO 30 MPH DREW CANADIAN AIR
INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES. CLOUDS, ALONG WITH SOME LIGHT SHOWERS
AND DRIZZLE OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTHWEST HALF, LINGERED
THROUGH THE NIGHT ON 7/14-7/15 BEFORE APPROACHING HIGH PRESSURE
BROUGHT A RETURN OF MORE SUNSHINE AND PLEASANTLY COOL WEATHER DURING
THE DAY ON 7/15. HIGH TEMPERATURES NEAR THE COOLING INFLUENCE OF
LAKE SUPERIOR ROSE NO HIGHER THAN 59 AT GWINN IN MARQUETTE COUNTY
AND AT MUNISING. RAINFALL TOTALS ON 7/13 INTO EARLY 7/15 WERE
GENERALLY 0.10 TO 0.50 INCH. AS MUCH AS 0.78 INCH AND 0.71 INCH FELL
AT HERMAN IN BARAGA COUNTY AND MUNISING RESPECTIVELY. THE MERCURY
AVERAGED 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL ON 7/13, BUT MEAN DAILY READINGS
THEN DROPPED TO ABOUT 5 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE ON 7/14 AND 10 TO 15
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON 7/15.

THE HIGH PRESSURE AREA MOVED RIGHT OVER UPPER MICHIGAN DURING THE
NIGHT ON 7/15-7/16, BRINGING CLEAR SKIES, LIGHT WINDS AND CHILLY
OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES THAT FELL INTO THE 30S AT SOME OF THE
INTERIOR COOL SPOTS. A LOCATION IN LUCE COUNTY JUST TO THE NORTH OF
NEWBERRY REPORTED THE LOWEST TEMPERATURE OF 30, WHICH ALSO ENDED UP
AS THE JULY MINIMUM. AS THE HIGH PRESSURE MOVED TO THE EAST, THE
SOUTHWEST FLOW ON ITS WESTERN FLANK BROUGHT A RETURN OF SUFFICIENT
MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY TO ALLOW FOR SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WITH LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS TO DEVELOP DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING ON 7/16, MAINLY OVER THE CENTRAL U.P. ONE OF THE STRONGER
STORMS DELUGED A LOCATION NEAR GLADSTONE WITH AS MUCH AS 2.64 INCHES
OF RAIN. THE MERCURY AVERAGED NEARLY 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON 7/16
THANKS TO THE MORNING CHILL.

AN AREA OF WIDESPREAD RAIN AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING DISTURBANCE AND
COLD FRONT IMPACTED MAINLY THE EAST HALF DURING THE MORNING ON 7/17
AND DROPPED OVER AN INCH OF RAIN AT SOME PLACES, INCLUDING 1.65
INCHES AT MUNISING. THE RETURN OF SOME SUNSHINE DURING THE AFTERNOON
ON 7/17 FUELED THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOME SEVERE STORMS INTO THE EARLY
EVENING OVER BARAGA AND MARQUETTE COUNTIES, WHERE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS
ASSOCIATED WITH THE STRONGER STORMS FELLED NUMEROUS TREES.  TRAILING
HIGH PRESSURE FOLLOWING THE FRONTAL PASSAGE THEN BROUGHT A PERIOD
OF DRY AND PLEASANT WEATHER ON 7/18 AND 7/19. THE EARLY MORNING ON
7/19 WAS QUITE COOL AND FEATURED MINIMUM TEMPERATURES AS LOW AS 37 AT
THE CHILLY SPOT NORTH OF NEWBERRY. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES WERE NOT
FAR FROM NORMAL ON 7/17 BUT THEN DROPPED TO NEARLY 5 DEGREES BELOW
AVERAGE ON 7/18 AND 7/19.

THE SOUTHWEST FLOW AROUND DEPARTING HIGH PRESSURE TOWARD THE MID
ATLANTIC STATES ADVECTED VERY WARM AND HUMID AIR INTO UPPER MICHIGAN
ON 7/20. THE THERMOMETER PEAKED IN THE 90S AT MANY PLACES OVER THE
WEST ON 7/20, WITH READINGS CLIMBING AS HIGH AS 93 AT PELKIE IN
BARAGA COUNTY. THE COMBINATION OF THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY PUSHED HEAT
INDEX READINGS OVER 100 AT SOME LOCATIONS. ALTHOUGH THE AIR DOWNWIND
OF LAKE MICHIGAN WAS ALSO QUITE HUMID, THE RELATIVELY COOL LAKE
WATERS HELD HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S AT LOCATIONS NEAR THAT BODY
OF WATER ON 7/20. THE OVERNIGHT ON 7/20-7/21 WAS OPPRESSIVELY WARM
WITH LOW TEMPERATURES HOLDING ABOVE 70 AT A NUMBER OF PLACES. A SPOT
NEAR MUNISING REPORTED A LOW OF 74. AS A DISTURBANCE APPROACHED FROM
THE WEST AND INTERACTED WITH THE VERY WARM AND UNSTABLE AIRMASS IN
PLACE, ANOTHER ROUND OF SEVERE STORMS ROLLED INTO WESTERN UPPER
MICHIGAN AROUND SUNRISE ON 7/21, CAUSING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS UP TO 90
MPH AND SOME HEAVY RAIN WEST OF A LINE FROM MARQUETTE TO IRON
MOUNTAIN UNTIL THE STORMS WEAKENED AROUND MID-MORNING. SEVERAL
LOCATIONS REPORTED AN INCH OF MORE OF RAIN, INCLUDING BERGLAND DAM
WHICH LED REPORTING STATIONS WITH 1.43 INCHES. THE RETURN OF AT
LEAST PARTIAL SUNSHINE DURING THE AFTERNOON ON 7/21 LIFTED
TEMPERATURES ABOVE 90 AT SOME LOCATIONS AGAIN AND AS HIGH AS 93 AT A
NUMBER OF PLACES. THE MERCURY AVERAGED 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
ON 7/20 AND 7/21.

AN AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE THEN BROUGHT A PERIOD OF DRY BUT STILL WARM
WEATHER TO UPPER MICHIGAN ON 7/22 AND 7/23. THE THERMOMETER FELL NO
LOWER THAN AN UNCOMFORTABLE 72 AT BIG BAY IN MARQUETTE COUNTY EARLY
ON 7/22. READINGS TOPPED OUT IN THE 90S AT A FEW PLACES ON BOTH DAYS,
INCLUDING THE MONTHLY MAXIMUM OF 96 AT STONINGTON IN DELTA COUNTY ON
7/22 AND 92 AT NEWBERRY ON 7/23. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON BOTH
THESE DAYS AVERAGED 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. SHOWERS
DEVELOPED TO THE NORTH OF AN APPROACHING WARM FRONT DURING THE NIGHT
ON 7/23-7/24, WHEN MOST PLACES PICKED UP 0.10 TO 0.50 INCH OF RAIN.
AS MUCH AS 0.64 INCH FELL AT STAMBAUGH IN IRON COUNTY. AFTER THE
THERMOMETER BOTTOMED OUT AT AN UNCOMFORTABLE 71 AT MENOMINEE, THE
DAY ON 7/24 TURNED OUT TO BE VERY WARM AND HUMID WITH A MEAN DAILY
TEMPERATURE 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE.

NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING TO 25 TO 35 MPH AHEAD OF HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDING INTO MINNESOTA PUSHED A MUCH LESS HUMID AND A BIT COOLER
AIRMASS INTO THE UPPER LAKES ON 7/25. ONCE THIS HIGH DRIFTED TO THE
EAST AND WINDS TURNED TO THE SOUTHWEST, WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR
RETURNED ON 7/26. ABUNDANT SUNSHINE LIFTED MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES ON
7/26 TO 90 OR HIGHER AT SOME PLACES AND UP TO 91 AT IRON MOUNTAIN,
RANDVILLE IN DICKINSON COUNTY AND AMASA IN IRON COUNTY. MEAN DAILY
TEMPERATURES WERE ABOUT 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL ON 7/25, THEN NEAR
10 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 7/26.

A SLOW MOVING COLD FRONT CROSSED UPPER MICHIGAN DURING THE NIGHT ON
7/26-7/27, BRINGING SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY
DURING THE EVENING ON 7/26. IN ADDITION TO SOME LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN,
WITH PRECIPITATION TOTALS AS MUCH AS 1.03 INCHES AT WATERSMEET IN
GOGEBIC COUNTY, ONE OF THE STORMS TURNED SEVERE AND BOMBARDED GRAND
MARAIS AND DEER PARK IN LUCE COUNTY WITH HAIL UP TO 1.25 INCHES IN
DIAMETER. CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OVER THE UPPER LAKES
FOLLOWING THIS FRONTAL PASSAGE THEN BROUGHT A PERIOD OF DRY AND COOL
WEATHER TO THE U.P. TO END JULY. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON 7/27
THROUGH 7/31 RAN FROM NEAR NORMAL TO AS MUCH AS 5 DEGREES BELOW
AVERAGE.

                         SEPTEMBER FORECAST

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING EQUAL CHANCES OF
AN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE AND MONTHLY
PRECIPITATION ACROSS ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN SEPTEMBER 2016.

                        SEPTEMBER CLIMATOLOGY

AVERAGE TEMPERATURES IN SEPTEMBER BEGIN TO FALL SHARPLY...ABOUT 8 TO
9 DEGREES LOWER THAN IN AUGUST...AS SUMMER TRANSITIONS TO AUTUMN AND
DAYLIGHT GROWS SHORTER. THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX THIS YEAR IS AT 1029 PM
EDT ON 9/22. POSSIBLE SUNSHINE IN SEPTEMBER DECLINES FROM 800
MINUTES ON 9/1 TO 706 MINUTES ON 9/30...A DECREASE OF 3 TO 4 MINUTES
EACH DAY.

ALTHOUGH THE DAYS GROW SHORTER DURING THE NINTH MONTH...MID SUMMER
LIKE WARMTH CAN STILL GRIP UPPER MICHIGAN DURING SEPTEMBER. ON
9/12/98...RESIDENTS OF IRON MOUNTAIN SIZZLED IN 98-DEGREE HEAT. BOTH
IRON MOUNTAIN AND IRONWOOD RECORDED HIGH TEMPERATURES ABOVE 90 FIVE
DAYS IN A ROW DURING A TORRID MID SEPTEMBER HEATWAVE BETWEEN 9/8 AND
9/12 IN 1931. WITH TEMPERATURES AVERAGING 7 TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL...SEPTEMBER 1931 GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD BOOKS AS THE WARMEST
SEPTEMBER EVER OBSERVED AT IRON MOUNTAIN AND IRONWOOD. MORE RECENTLY
IN 2002...MANY PLACES BAKED IN 90-DEGREE HEAT FOR THREE DAYS IN A
ROW ON 9/7 THROUGH 9/9.

SEPTEMBER 2015 WAS QUITE WARM OVER ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN AND THE
WARMEST NINTH MONTH ON RECORD AT NEWBERRY AND MANISTIQUE THANKS TO
PERSISTENT UPPER RIDGE THAT DOMINATED CENTRAL AND EASTERN NORTH
AMERICA. MOST PLACES EXPERIENCED ONE OF THEIR TOP FIVE WARMEST
SEPTEMBERS IN 2015, WHEN MEAN MONTHLY TEMPERATURES RAN 5 TO 7
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. SEPTEMBER 2004 WAS ALSO DOMINATED BY AN UPPER
RIDGE AND QUITE WARM, WITH A MONTHLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 3 TO 8
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL ENOUGH TO PLACE THAT SEPTEMBER AMONG THE TOP
TEN WARMEST AT MOST LOCATIONS. THAT MONTH ENDED UP AS THE WARMEST
SEPTEMBER ON RECORD AT ONTONAGON AND THE MARQUETTE NWS OFFICE. IN
FACT, THE MONTHLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 61.8 AT THE MARQUETTE NWS
WAS ONLY A TENTH OF A DEGREE LOWER THAN THE 61.9 READING OBSERVED IN
JULY 2004. SEPTEMBER 2009 WAS ALSO QUITE BALMY WITH MONTHLY AVERAGE
TEMPERATURES 4 TO 6 DEGREES ABOVE THE MEAN. THAT MONTH WAS AMONG THE
TOP 10 WARMEST SEPTEMBERS AT MOST LOCATIONS IN UPPER MICHIGAN.

BUT WINTER OFTEN MAKES ITS FIRST RETURN BY LATE IN THE MONTH. THE
GROWING SEASON ENDS EVERYWHERE EXCEPT ALONG THE WARMER GREAT LAKES
SHORES DURING SEPTEMBER WITH AN INCREASED PROBABILITY OF KILLING
FROST. RECORD LOW TEMPERATURES OVER INLAND AREAS FALL INTO THE 20S
DURING THE MONTH AND EVEN INTO THE UPPER TEENS AT MANY LOCATIONS
TOWARD MONTHS END. ON 9/22/95...THE WESTERN UPPER PENINSULA WAS
STRUCK WITH AN EARLY SEASON SNOWSTORM. IRONWOOD PICKED UP 6.5
INCHES...AND HOUGHTON ALSO SAW 3 INCHES OF THE WHITE STUFF THAT DAY.
AT LEAST AN INCH OF SNOW HAS FALLEN ON PORTIONS OF UPPER MICHIGAN
DURING LATE SEPTEMBER IN 1965...1974...1989...AND 1993.

AS THE JET STREAM SINKS FARTHER SOUTH DURING SEPTEMBER AND INTERACTS
WITH FAIRLY WARM AND HUMID AIRMASSES STILL RESIDENT OVER THE UNITED
STATES...AVERAGE MONTHLY PRECIPITATION OVER MUCH OF UPPER MICHIGAN
PEAKS AT A YEARLY MAXIMUM BETWEEN 3.5 AND 4.0 INCHES. ALTHOUGH
CONVECTION OCCURS LESS FREQUENTLY THAN DURING MID SUMMER...
THUNDERSTORMS STILL PRESENT A SEVERE WEATHER AND HEAVY RAIN THREAT.
IRONWOOD WAS INUNDATED WITH 10.74" OF RAIN DURING SEPTEMBER 1926.

                 OUTLOOK FOR FALL INTO EARLY WINTER

THE CPC IS FORECASTING A GREATER THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL CHANCE OF AN
ABOVE NORMAL 3-MONTH AVERAGE TEMPERATURE BUT EQUAL CHANGES OF ABOVE
AND BELOW NORMAL 3-MONTH PRECIPITATION OVER ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN
OCTOBER THROUGH DECEMBER 2016.
