This Day in Southeast Michigan Weather History ...
On April 30, 1962, 2 simultaneous F1 tornadoes hit Washtenaw County at 6:00pm.
On a dry weather note, the date concluded one of the driest (4th) Aprils on record in 2004 when just 0.69"
of precipitation fell (0.70" at Flint made April 2004
the second driest on record). One has to look back nearly a century to find a drier April (0.66"-1915) in Detroit.
