May Birthday

I am hosting my daughters birthday on May 23rd and want to have it outside at a shelter rental but I am wondering if it will be warm enough and not rainy.

Wedding planned what weather to expect?

My wedding is planned for Feb 29th in IL, we're driving there from WI and I'm wondering what kind of weather to plan for if we should leave a few days early or wait?

plant swap event weather

Hosting a neighborhood mid-morning Plant Swap Event on May 30th 2020
Wondering will there rain or thunderstorms or even snow? this is an outdoor event
so hoping for a sunny or cloudy day, my tent not big enough lol!
Thanks for any help

Sunny here

Well, I'm between Cleveland & Toledo about 20 minutes from the lake, The last two days ( Feb 2nd & 3rd) have been sunny and very mild, 55 degrees today. . I'm in Lower Lakes region.

Robins in Northern climate

Robins eat fruits, berries, earthworms, grasshoppers, grubs. They do not exist on a seed diet. If they can find food and shelter, they will not migrate. You can hear their song all winter. Leave some meal worms on a high platform near some shrubs or other cover , and they will frequent the area. The sighting of robins indicates warmer weather or spring, is only because they are more active seeking local food sources.

November and December Averages Spot On

Here in southwest Lower Michigan the monthly averages that were forecast by TOFA were spot on. In Grand Rapids, MI we averaged exactly 4.0 degrees (above) for the month, and November averaged 5.0 degrees (below). The daily timing/temperature/precip were fairly close as well - nice job guys. Let's hope the January forecast (5.0 degrees above) is spot on as well. So far a pretty easy winter; just the way many of us like it.

That's in Indianapolis IN by

That's in Indianapolis IN by the way!

60th Birthday party

Planning a bash on February 22, 2020. Any snow storms likely?

snow totals

It is impossible to predict long term snowfall in Buffalo NY . Lake effect snow is unpredictable but right now the Lake is wide open . Which is not good going forward. Anyone who lives in Buffalo knows this.The week before and after Christmas is warmer than usual. with no snow. So this farmer almanac forecast is WAY off already. The only sure thing is we will get snow storms in Buffalo . When is anybody's guess but the local weather forecasters will warn us when it is going to happen.
