Daughter's Wedding

I'm performing my daughters wedding on August 16th on the beach in Kenosha, WI, with an out door reception to follow. Any predictuons on the weather for the day?

We have 6 ft snow in Kincheloe Mi

We have about 6 ft of snow in Kincheloe Mi, With snow banks taller than our fence. It is March 2019 . Will spring arrive at all ? How will we ever get rid of this snow in time for spring. Worst winter I've seen ever in the U.P of Michigan. Has anyone eve had a winter like this that they remember ? What month did all the snow end up going away completely ? and how was the summer temperatures?

did some time up there in

did some time up there in kinross... a prison town in upper michigan. all that wilderness and only a handful of trees on the yard. its a disgusting industry that supports that town. and its the place of nightmares.

Weather

When can we expect it to be warm and sunny with no snow??

Winter 2018-2019

Yeah...we had record setting snowfall at more than 200+ inches already AND cold in Marquette. Guess it's time to turn in the ole Almanac.

March 31 2019. At camp

Walked the property line all on top of frozen snow. Did manage to find a soft spot and sank over 3 feet . Funny thing is I never felt the ground. May 15 for snow to be gone. My ground hog prediction. Dickinson county

Wedding weather

Our wedding date is July 13, 2019, in McGregor MN what can we expect for weather?

prediction

So far we have had record cold and record snow for February in Wisconsin.

hail

with all the snow melting precipitation will be high does that translate to severe hail and thunderstorms rolling through? looks like may and july would be the big potential for severe storms

Wedding day weather

I’m getting married June 1 2019 we are having an outdoor ceremony and reception under a tent in Hastings MN . What can i expect?
