...WATER LEVELS RISE TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL IN MAY...

RUNOFF FROM MODERATE TO HEAVY PRECIPITATION DURING APRIL AND MAY
CONTRIBUTED TO RISING WATERS LEVELS IN MAY. AT THE END OF MAY, WATER
LEVELS ON LAKE SUPERIOR WERE 10 TO 11 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND 4 TO 5
INCHES HIGHER THAN OBSERVED IN MAY 2016. THE LEVEL ON LAKES MICHIGAN
AND HURON ENDED UP 14 TO 15 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND ALSO 1 TO 2
INCHES HIGHER THAN THE LEVEL OBSERVED IN MAY 2016.

                       MAY CLIMATE HIGHLIGHTS

HIGHEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...51.6 DEGREES AT IRON MOUNTAIN


LOWEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...44.5 DEGREES AT JACOBSVILLE IN HOUGHTON
                              COUNTY

HIGHEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...6.71 INCHES AT WATERSMEET IN GOGEBIC
                                 COUNTY

LOWEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...2.63 INCHES AT MANISTIQUE

HIGHEST MONTHLY SNOWFALL...2.1 INCHES AT BERGLAND DAM IN ONTONAGON
                            COUNTY

ALTHOUGH THERE WAS GENERALLY DRY WEATHER FROM 5/3 TO 5/15, AN ACTIVE
WEATHER PATTERN PREVAILED MUCH OF THE REST OF MAY 2017 ACROSS THE
UPPER GREAT LAKES. MONTHLY PRECIPITATION ENDED UP FROM WELL ABOVE
NORMAL OVER PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN TO
CLOSER TO NORMAL AT MOST PLACES OVER THE NORTHEAST HALF. OVER 5
INCHES OF RAIN FELL AT SOME LOCATIONS FROM IRONWOOD AND ONTONAGON TO
IRON MOUNTAIN, INCLUDING THE MONTHLY MAXIMUM OF 6.71 INCHES AT
WATERSMEET, TOTALS AROUND 200 PERCENT OF THE MAY AVERAGES. IRON
MOUNTAIN MEASURED THE SEVENTH HIGHEST MAY PRECIPITATION ON RECORD AT
THAT SIGHT WITH 5.90 INCHES. THERE WAS LESS PRECIPITATION OVER THE
EAST, WHERE ONLY 2.63 INCHES AND 2.75 INCHES FELL AT MANISTIQUE AND
NEWBERRY RESPECTIVELY. THESE TOTALS ARE CLOSE TO THE MAY NORMALS FOR
THOSE LOCATIONS.

SINCE THE UPPER AIR PATTERN FEATURED A TROUGH IN CENTRAL NORTH
AMERICA MUCH OF THE TIME IN MAY, THE MONTH ENDED UP COOLER THAN
NORMAL. MEAN MONTHLY TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM AROUND 45 DEGREES
CLOSE TO THE COOLING INFLUENCE OF LAKE SUPERIOR TO NEAR 52 DEGREES
AT IRON MOUNTAIN ARE ABOUT 2 TO 4 DEGREES BELOW THE MONTHLY AVERAGES
AND 6 TO 9 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THE APRIL MEAN TEMPERATURES.

MAY BEGAN ON A CHILLY, WET NOTE AS A DEEP LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER
THE PLAINS MOVED NORTHEAST INTO THE GREAT LAKES. RAIN AHEAD OF THIS
LOW OVERSPREAD THE AREA DURING THE NIGHT ON 4/30-5/1. MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURES HELD IN THE 30S OVER THE COLDER SPOTS ACROSS NORTHWEST
UPPER MICHIGAN. AS THE LOW SHIFTED TO THE NORTH, NORTHWEST WINDS
GUSTING AS HIGH AS 35 TO 40 MPH IN ITS WAKE DREW EVEN COLDER AIR
INTO THE UPPER LAKES TO CHANGE THE PRECIPITATION TO SNOW OVER THE
HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTHWEST HALF DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
ON 5/2. BY THE TIME THE PRECIPITATION DIMINISHED DURING THE
AFTERNOON ON 5/2, 0.25 TO 0.75 INCH OF WATER EQUIVALENT
PRECIPITATION HAD FALLEN OVER MOST OF THE U.P. IRONWOOD LED
REPORTING STATIONS WITH A TOTAL OF 1.58 INCHES. BERGLAND DAM IN
ONTONAGON COUNTY, ATLANTIC MINE IN HOUGHTON COUNTY AND HERMAN IN
BARAGA COUNTY ALL REPORTED 2 INCHES OF WET SNOW.

A VERY ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN PREVAILED ACROSS THE WESTERN GREAT
LAKES ON 5/15 THROUGH 5/18 AS DISTURBANCES EMBEDDED IN A SOUTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT BETWEEN A DEEP TROUGH OVER THE WESTERN STATES AND A RIDGE
ACROSS THE EAST MOVED OVER A SLOW MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY. THESE
DISTURBANCES INTERACTED WITH THE WARM AND MOIST AIRMASS ON THE WARM
SIDE OF THE FRONT TO CAUSE EPISODES OF SHOWERS AND SOME
THUNDERSTORMS. THERE WERE INSTANCES OF VERY HEAVY RAIN, ESPECIALLY
DURING THE NIGHT ON 5/17-5/18, WHEN SOME MINOR FLOODING OCCURRED AT
SOME LOCATIONS OVER THE WEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL. AS MUCH AS 3.45
INCHES AND 2.47 INCHES OF RAIN FELL AT WATERSMEET IN GOGEBIC COUNTY
AND PAULDING IN ONTONAGON COUNTY RESPECTIVELY ON 5/17 THROUGH
DAYBREAK ON 5/18. THE STRONGEST THUNDERSTORM ALSO DROPPED NICKEL-
SIZED HAIL NEAR ESCANABA. ON 5/18, GUSTY NORTH WINDS TO 35 TO 45 MPH
FOLLOWING THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE LAST OF THE
DISTURBANCES BLEW COLDER AIR INTO UPPER MICHIGAN, CAUSING THE RAIN
TO MIX WITH SNOW OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTHWEST HALF
BEFORE THE PRECIPITATION ENDED BY LATE IN THE DAY. THE RAINFALL
TOTAL FROM 5/15 THROUGH 5/18 EXCEEDED AN INCH AT MOST PLACES AND WAS
AS MUCH AS 5.03 INCHES AT WATERSMEET. IN GENERAL, THE HEAVIEST RAINS
FELL OVER THE WESTERN U.P. AND THE LEAST OVER THE SOUTHEAST, WHERE
MENOMINEE AND MANISTIQUE PICKED UP ONLY A LITTLE OVER 0.50 INCH
DURING THESE 3 TO 4 DAYS.

MORE TO COME LATER.

                            JUNE FORECAST

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING EQUAL CHANCES OF
AN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION
ACROSS ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN JUNE 2017.

                           JUNE CLIMATOLOGY

AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO RISE DURING JUNE AS DAILY POSSIBLE
SUNSHINE PEAKS AT 950 MINUTES AROUND THE SUMMER SOLSTICE...WHICH
OCCURS THIS YEAR AT 12:24 AM EDT ON 6/21. AT THE MARQUETTE NWS...THE
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 56 ON 6/1 INCREASES TO 64 BY 6/30. THE JUNE
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE AT MOST PLACES OVER UPPER MICHIGAN IS ABOUT NINE
DEGREES HIGHER THAN IN MAY. AN INCREASE IN CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY FROM
MAY TO JUNE ALSO PUSHES AVERAGE MONTHLY PRECIPITATION UP AT MOST
LOCATIONS. SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS CAN DROP TORRENTIAL RAIN...AND
12.26 INCHES OF RAIN DELUGED THE MARQUETTE NWS IN JUNE 1968. THE
HIGHEST RECORD DAILY RAINFALL AMOUNT AT ALL STATIONS IN JUNE EXCEEDS
TWO INCHES.

EVEN THOUGH AVERAGE TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE MONTH SHOW A STEADY
WARMING TREND...FROST REMAINS A THREAT EVEN LATE IN JUNE. THE LATEST
OCCURRENCE OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES AT THE MARQUETTE NWS IS 6/22...
AND AS LATE AS 6/26 AT NEWBERRY. SHELTERED COLD SPOTS IN THE
INTERIOR CAN HAVE FROST THROUGH 6/30. ALTHOUGH ACCUMULATING SNOW IS
RARE...IT CAN OCCUR EARLY IN THE MONTH. ON 6/2/98...HIGHER TERRAIN
AREAS IN NORTH CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN RECORDED A SLUSHY INCH OF SNOW.

THE COOLEST JUNE IN RECENT MEMORY WAS IN 2004...WHEN TEMPERATURES
AVERAGED 2 TO 4 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. BUT JUNE 1982 SAW EVEN LOWER
TEMPERATURES...ABOUT SIX OR SEVEN DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. IN FACT...
JUNE 1982 IS THE COOLEST SIXTH MONTH ON RECORD AT MUNISING (MONTHLY
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 52.9)...IRONWOOD (54.4)...MARQUETTE CITY
(54.4)...AND ONTONAGON (56.2). JUNE 1982 LANDED IN THE LIST OF TOP
TEN COOLEST AT MOST LOCATIONS.

ALTHOUGH EARLY SPRING CHILL CAN OCCUR IN JUNE...BLISTERING SUMMER
HOT SPELLS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES AT ALL
REPORTING STATIONS ARE BETWEEN 94 AND 100. AT ALMOST EVERY
LOCATION...JUNE 2005 IS AMONG THE TOP TEN WARMEST ON RECORD. A
SWELTERING HEAT WAVE WITH DAYTIME HIGHS IN THE 90S AWAY FROM THE
COOLING INFLUENCE OF THE GREAT LAKES DURING PART OF THE FOURTH WEEK
OF THAT MONTH PUSHED AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURES 3 TO 6 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL. AT ONTONAGON (67.9) AND MANISTIQUE (64.0)...JUNE 2005
IS THE WARMEST ON RECORD. JUNE 1995 WAS ALSO VERY WARM...WITH MEAN
TEMPERATURES AVERAGING AS MUCH AS 6 TO 7 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. IN
FACT...THAT JUNE IS THE WARMEST ON RECORD AT THE MARQUETTE NWS
(66.3)...THE HOUGHTON COUNTY AIRPORT (66.1)...AND MUNISING (65.1).
ONLY AT IRONWOOD DID JUNE 1995 NOT END UP IN THE TOP TEN WARMEST. A
TORRID HEATWAVE AROUND MID MONTH PUSHED THE MERCURY UP TO THE
CENTURY MARK AT IRON MOUNTAIN ON 6/19/95. THE 78.6-DEGREE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE AT IRON MOUNTAIN BETWEEN 6/18 AND 6/25 IN 1995 PUTS THAT
EIGHT-DAY STRETCH IN THE RECORD BOOK AS THE WARMEST WEEK IN JUNE
EVER OBSERVED THERE. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE EXCEEDED 90 ON SEVEN OF
THOSE EIGHT DAYS.

                  OUTLOOK FOR SUMMER INTO EARLY FALL

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING A GREATER THAN
CLIMATOLOGICAL CHANCE OF AN ABOVE NORMAL 3-MONTH AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
BUT EQUAL CHANCES OF ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL 3-MONTH PRECIPITATION
ACROSS ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN JULY THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2017.
