Southwest Lower Michigan Weather History

The Weather History for July 25th

The USS Muskegon, named after the Michigan city, is launched from Superior, Wisconsin on a day with scattered showers and high temperature of 86 degrees at Muskegon, Michigan. The ship saw duty in World War Two, escorting convoys across the Atlantic. The ship also took weather observations and served as as radio and light ship for trans-atlantic flights until after the end of the war.
An extended round of severe weather from the evening of July 25th into the morning of the 26th produced widespread wind damage across Lower Michigan. A tornado struck three miles west of Baldwin and downed hundreds of trees at a campground. Fortunately, most of the campers had left just hours earlier, and there were no injuries. is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
