We’re glad to hear that the weather cooperated for your daughter’s wedding! Thanks for commenting.

Grand Traverse/Benzie/Leelanau Counties MI

If the first week of September is going to be cool, the weather needs to hurry up and change here at the base of the little finger of the Michigan mitten. Can't complain about the rainfall, though - we waited a LONG time! And now, bring on those cool fall temps!

northwoods of wisconsin

we have no weather, or anything pertaining to the Northwoods of Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Michigan has a lower and an upper. The great lakes affects different areas in the two areas. What happened in April 2018 left us with 3 feet of snowfall....

prediction

When are you going to stop lumping our area in with Duluth and Marquette. We never have that kind of weather we have too much influence from Lake Michigan we are 30 miles from the lake shore by Traverse City and our weather is never as cold This is my one big complaint about the almanac we are at 49633 look that up.

It’s the Farmer’s Almanac

It’s the Farmer’s Almanac which is about as accurately predictive as me walking outside, wetting my finger, lifting it into the breeze and telling anyone anything I want. Use science. It’s 2018.

Upper Penn of Mich/Northern Wisc Border

I live in upper penninsula of michigan and wisconsin border and in which i do agree, we dont exactly have our own forecast on here. the closest to me is the escanaba forecast, i would like to see somenthing for Iron Mountain, Mi!! but overall though our weather seems to be totally unpredictable, we live in a vortex too, the almanac is usually close as it comes to accuracy for our weather!

Ice fishing

I want ice fish this year 2018-2019. I want it colder than last year!!!!

Clouds

Omg- enough with this sunny hot weather- I feel like I’m being attacked!! When is the cool rainy weather going to come??

Weather fall 2018 and for the 2019 year

What will fall And rest of 2018 and for the year 2019 weather be like in southern Minnesota

Rain

We really need rain here in Northeast Wisconsin. It is very dry and the leaves are turning brown on one tree and falling off of others. I have been watering like crazy, just about daily. There are not any worms coming up for the robins so they are also gone. Usually by now the Canadian robins have come down, but they haven't.

We need a lot of snow and cold this winter also. It helps the birds and other animals and the moisture would help us.
