Southwest Lower Michigan Weather History

The Weather History for June 29th

Severe weather struck Lower Michigan. A tornado and downburst event destroyed a church and several barns with an intermittent path of damage from Scottville to Cadillac.
Very cool summer weather prevailed with a record low temperature of 43 degrees and a record cool high temperature of 61 degrees at Grand Rapids. Another record low of 40 degrees would follow on the morning of the 30th.
As much as four inches of rain within an hour left streets and basements flooded in the city of East Grand Rapids and in southeast sections of the city of Grand Rapids. Water standing two to three feet deep stranded cars along one street, but most damage was due to flooded basements.
A weak tornado moved across rural areas of Newaygo County, causing no damage. The tornado was a type known as a landspout. Several photos captured its brief but impressive existence.
