Saturday Morning Lows

Frosty conditions were once again observed across Southwest Lower Michigan as totally clear skies and calm winds were commonplace overnight.  A Freeze Warning was issued for the overnight period and into Saturday morning to highlight the damage risk to unprotected vegetation, fruit trees, and orchards.  The threat for frost and freeze conditions came very early this year as record warmth overspread the entire Great Lakes region during the middle of March, when high temperatures were more indicative of June and July.  This warmth lead to premature vegetative growth.

Frost and freeze conditions are possible Monday night through Wednesday night, although at this time it appears that low temperatures may be slightly warmer than Saturday morning's lows.  Here is a sampling of low temperatures across the region:





26....Alma and Big Rapids


28....Lansing, Mt. Pleasant, Charlotte, and St. Johns

29....Fremont, Marshall, and Mason

30....Muskegon, South Haven, Kalamazoo, and Jackson

31....Grand Rapids and Holland
