...GENERAL 2011 OVERVIEW...

 

THE BIG WEATHER STORIES OF 2011 ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN INCLUDED:

 

...VERY DRY WITH BELOW NORMAL SNOWFALL IN JANUARY THROUGH MARCH...

...COOL WITH ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION IN APRIL THROUGH JUNE...

...WARM AND DRY DURING JULY THROUGH DECEMBER...

 

ALTHOUGH THE AVERAGE ANNUAL TEMPERATURE IN 2011 ENDED UP 1.5 TO 2.5

DEGREES LOWER THAN IN 2010...WHICH IS A TOP FIVE WARMEST YEAR AT

MOST LOCATIONS...THE MEAN TEMPERATURE WAS STILL A DEGREE OR SO ABOVE

THE 1981-2010 NORMAL....PLACING 2011 IN THE RECORD BOOKS AS ONE OF

THE TOP 10 TO 20 WARMEST YEARS AT MOST PLACES. THE ANNUAL WARMTH WAS

DUE MAINLY TO ANOMALOUSLY HIGH TEMPERATURES THAT PREVAILED A GOOD

PORTION OF THE TIME DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR. IN FACT...

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE DURING JANUARY THROUGH JUNE 2011 WAS NOT FAR

FROM NORMAL. HOWEVER...THE JULY THROUGH DECEMBER PERIOD WAS AMONG

THE TOP TWO WARMEST LAST SIX MONTHS OF ANY YEAR ON RECORD AT SOME

SPOTS.

 

           ...JULY THROUGH DECEMBER MEAN TEMPERATURE...

 

                OBSERVED NORMAL DEPARTURE    RECORD       RANK

 

NEWBERRY          51.2    46.3    +4.9    51.4 (1998)  2ND WARMEST

CONSISTENTLY WET PERIODS IN 2011 OCCURRED ONLY IN APRIL THROUGH JUNE

AND AGAIN THE SECOND HALF OF SEPTEMBER. SINCE GENERALLY DRY WEATHER

PREVAILED THE REST OF THE TIME...ANNUAL PRECIPITATION WAS 2 TO 6

INCHES BELOW NORMAL AT MOST PLACES OVER THE WEST AND CENTRAL...WHERE

THE YEAR GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD BOOKS AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 TO 20

DRIEST AT A NUMBER OF PLACES. SPRING WAS WET ENOUGH OVER THE EAST TO

OFFSET DRYNESS THE REST OF THE YEAR SO THAT ANNUAL PRECIPITATION IN

THOSE AREAS WAS NOT FAR FROM THE 30-YEAR NORMAL. OVERALL...THE 2011

PRECIPITATION ENDED UP 3 TO 6 INCHES LOWER THAN IN THE WET YEAR OF

2010.

 

SINCE DRY WEATHER PREVAILED AND TEMPERATURES TRENDED ABOVE NORMAL

DURING THE COLDER TIMES OF THE YEAR...ESPECIALLY IN NOVEMBER AND

DECEMBER...CALENDAR YEAR SNOWFALL WAS BELOW TO WELL BELOW AVERAGE AT

MOST PLACES AND AMONG THE TOP FIVE LOWEST AT SOME LOCATIONS FOR A

SECOND YEAR IN A ROW. ONLY 51.6 INCHES OF THE WHITE STUFF FELL IN

THE CITY OF MARQUETTE IN ALL OF 2011...JUST 45 PERCENT OF NORMAL AND

THE SECOND LOWEST CALENDAR YEAR TOTAL SINCE 1885. THE ONLY LOWER

ANNUAL TOTAL FOR MARQUETTE WAS THE 49.8 INCHES THAT FELL THERE IN

1941.

 

A PERSISTENT NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT IN JANUARY THROUGH MARCH PREVENTED

THE MAJORITY OF THE MOISTURE-LADEN LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS THAT

IMPACTED THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES FROM MOVING FAR ENOUGH NORTH TO

BRING WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION TO UPPER MICHIGAN DURING THOSE FIRST

THREE MONTHS OF 2011. MANY PLACES ENDURED A TOP FIVE DRIEST JANUARY

THROUGH MARCH PERIOD WITH OBSERVED TOTAL PRECIPITATION RUNNING LESS

THAN 50 PERCENT OF NORMAL DURING THOSE THREE MONTHS. SNOWFALL ALSO

RAN BELOW AVERAGE...ESPECIALLY IN THOSE AREAS OVER THE SOUTH CENTRAL

THAT DID NOT SEE MUCH LAKE EFFECT SNOW. ALTHOUGH THERE WERE SOME

WARM PERIODS...ESPECIALLY IN MID FEBRUARY WHEN MEAN DAILY

TEMPERATURES AVERAGED UP TO 25 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL ON 2/13 THROUGH

2/18 AND THE MERCURY TOPPED OUT AS HIGH AS 69 AT KENTON IN FAR

SOUTHERN HOUGHTON COUNTY ON 2/16...THE PREVAILING NORTHWEST FLOW

ALOFT RESULTED IN FREQUENT ARCTIC AIR INVASIONS IN JANUARY THROUGH

MARCH. OVERALL TEMPERATURES DURING THIS 3-MONTH PERIOD WERE NOT FAR

FROM NORMAL.

 

A WETTER PATTERN THAT FEATURED A MEAN UPPER TROUGH IN THE GREAT

LAKES WAS THE RULE IN APRIL THROUGH JUNE. APRIL WAS PARTICULARLY WET

OVER THE EAST CLOSER TO THE MORE FREQUENT TRACK OF LOW PRESSURE

SYSTEMS MOVING THROUGH THE TROUGH. MANY PLACES EAST OF A LINE FROM

MUNISING TO ESCANABA REPORTED CLOSE TO 6 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION...

OVER 250 PERCENT OF THE APRIL NORMAL. TOTAL PRECIPITATION FOR APRIL

THROUGH JUNE WAS 12 INCHES OR MORE AT MANY SPOTS OVER THE EAST...

WITH AS MUCH AS 13.33 INCHES AT MANISTIQUE. THIS TOTAL IS THE FIFTH

HIGHEST ON RECORD AND WELL ABOVE THE 7.86 INCHES WHICH WOULD

NORMALLY FALL AT MANISTIQUE DURING THESE THREE MONTHS. WITH THE DEEP

TROUGH AROUND MUCH OF THE TIME...COOL WEATHER PREVAILED. JUNE WAS

PARTICULARLY COOL RELATIVE TO NORMAL AT HOUGHTON...WHERE THE MONTHLY

MEAN TEMPERATURE IN 2011 WAS AS MUCH AS 3.5 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE.

THE OVERALL TEMPERATURE IN APRIL THROUGH JUNE TENDED TO BE A DEGREE

OR TWO BELOW THE 3-MONTH MEAN ACROSS THE U.P.

 

AFTER THE RELATIVELY COOL...WET SPRING...THE RETURN OF A PREVAILING

UPPER RIDGE IN JULY THROUGH AUGUST CAUSED VERY WARM AND DRY WEATHER

MUCH OF THE TIME BY SUPPRESSING SUMMER CONVECTION MORE THAN USUAL.

THIS RIDGE WAS STRENGTHENED BY RECORD HEAT AND DROUGHT THAT PARCHED

THE SOUTHERN PLAINS DURING THE MEMORABLE SUMMER OF 2011. THE DRYNESS

WAS MOST PRONOUNCED OVER THE CENTRAL...WHERE NEGAUNEE IN MARQUETTE

COUNTY SAW LESS THAN 2 INCHES OF RAIN IN JULY AND AUGUST COMBINED...

JUST ONE THIRD OF NORMAL FOR THAT SPOT. THE MERCURY REACHED 90 OR

BETTER AT AT LEAST ONE LOCATION IN UPPER MICHIGAN IN JULY. ONE OF

THE HOTTEST DAYS WAS ON 7/20...WHEN A LOCATION JUST NORTHWEST OF

BARAGA REPORTED A SIZZLING 100-DEGREE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE. THIS

100-DEGREE READING WAS THE FIRST TO OCCUR IN UPPER MICHIGAN SINCE

7/31 IN 2006. THERE WAS LESS EXCESSIVE HEAT IN AUGUST...BUT THE

MONTH STILL ENDED UP ON THE WARM SIDE DUE TO A GENERAL LACK OF

CLOUDS AND VERY COOL DAYS.

 

ALTHOUGH THE FIRST HALF OF SEPTEMBER WAS DRY...A DEEPENING TROUGH IN

THE GREAT LAKES THE LAST 10 DAYS BROUGHT WELCOME RAINS TO MAINLY THE

NORTH CENTRAL AND EAST THAT PUSHED MONTHLY PRECIPITATION TO AROUND

175 PERCENT OF NORMAL AT SOME LOCATIONS. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT LOW

PRESSURE TO INFLUENCE UPPER MICHIGAN IN SEPTEMBER IMPACTED THE AREA

ON 9/29 AND 9/30...CAUSING SOME VERY HEAVY RAIN OVER MAINLY THE

NORTH CENTRAL AND DAMAGING NORTH WINDS THAT GUSTED AS HIGH AS 66 MPH

AT MENOMINEE. THERE WERE NUMEROUS TREES FELLED BY THESE STRONG WINDS

AND WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES.

 

THE UPPER RIDGE RETURNED IN FULL FORCE EARLY IN OCTOBER...BRINGING

BONE DRY CONDITIONS AND A PERIOD OF UNPRECEDENTED WARMTH ON 10/4

THROUGH 10/13 THAT FEATURED MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES IN THE 80S ON MANY

OF THESE DAYS. ALTHOUGH AN UPPER TROUGH BROUGHT COOLER AND SHOWERY

WEATHER THE SECOND HALF OF OCTOBER...INCLUDING A HEAVY RAIN EVENT ON

10/14 INTO 10/15...THE MONTH STILL ENDED UP WARM AND DRY BECAUSE THE

RIDGE WAS SO DOMINANT THE FIRST HALF. SINCE EITHER AN UPPER RIDGE OR

A WEST-TO-EAST FLOW ALOFT OF MILD PACIFIC AIR DOMINATED THE WEATHER

PATTERN IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER...WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WITH

BELOW NORMAL SNOWFALL WERE THE RULE OVER UPPER MICHIGAN. THE OVERALL

WARMTH...WITH OBSERVED MEAN TEMPERATURES AVERAGING 3 TO 5 DEGREES

ABOVE AVERAGE...ALSO LIMITED LAKE EFFECT SNOWS. IN FACT...THE CITY

OF MARQUETTE REPORTED AN ANEMIC 6.6 INCHES OF SNOW IN NOVEMBER AND

DECEMBER COMBINED...LESS THAN 20 PERCENT OF NORMAL AND THE SECOND

LOWEST ON RECORD FOR THIS 2-MONTH PERIOD SINCE 1885. MUNISING ALSO

SAW THE SECOND LOWEST NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER TOTAL WITH ONLY 18.5

INCHES OF THE WHITE STUFF. NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER TOTAL SNOWFALL

AVERAGED JUST 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF NORMAL AT MOST LOCATIONS.

ALTHOUGH THE COMBINATION OF WINTER SNOWMELT AND HEAVY APRIL THROUGH

JUNE PRECIPITATION CONSPIRED TO HELP LAKE LEVELS REBOUND SHARPLY

DURING THE SPRING INTO SUMMER...GREAT LAKES WATER LEVELS REMAIN

AROUND A FOOT BELOW NORMAL DUE TO LONG TERM WARMTH AND DRYNESS.
