Summer Stats For Southeast Michigan

The 2010 summer stats are in for Southeast Lower Michigan. It was one very warm and stormy, but at the same time wet and dry summer. Over half the area saw average to above average rainfall with the wettest extending from the Ann Arbor area, east across the southern portions of Metro Detroit and Downriver communities and points south, to near the Ohio border. This area also saw the majority of the severe weather. Another wet area could be found over the tip of the Thumb Region /Huron County/.  The heart of the wetness interestingly encompassed the I-94 corridor. Notably dry conditions were sandwiched in between the above areas and it was located from the far northern suburbs of Detroit, north into the base of the Thumb (or over the mid-portion of the Southeast Michigan). The heart of this drier area was roughly along and between I-696 and I-69 and over southern Tuscola County.
