Michigan's Wet June
(2008-07-02)
(wgvu) - If you thought it was wet in
Michigan last month, the numbers back you up.
The National Weather Service says northern and western Lower
Michigan got significantly higher than average rainfall in June.
Preliminary data shows it was the wettest June on record at
Houghton Lake, which normally receives 2.93 inches of rain but got
9.2 inches last month. Lake City, 30 miles to the west, normally
sees 2.95 inches of rain but was inundated with 10.66 inches last
month.
The weather service measured 5.66 inches of rain at Grand
Rapids, 1.99 inches above normal. Almost half that total, 2.71
inches, fell on June 7-8.
Weather service meteorologist Steven Freitag says the 4.05
inches that fell at Detroit was an "insignificant" increase over
the 3.55 inches that's normal for June.
