Record Set For Consecutive Calendar Days with Low Rainfall Totals

Many locations across the U.P. have experienced very warm and dry conditions this summer.  Here at the National Weather Service office near Marquette the summer season has given us the most consecutive calendar days with rainfall totals less than 0.25 inches for the time period ranging from May 1 to August 29.  The records here at the National Weather Service date back to 1961.
