...GREAT LAKES WATER LEVELS CONTINUE STEADY RISE IN JUNE...

THE COMBINATION OF RUNOFF FROM SPRING SNOWMELT AND HEAVY
PRECIPITATION THIS YEAR AS WELL AS REDUCED EVAPORATION DUE TO CHILLY
WATER TEMPERATURES CAUSED GREAT LAKES WATER LEVELS TO RISE STEADILY
IN JUNE. IN FACT...THERE WAS STILL SOME ICE ON LAKE SUPERIOR DURING
THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE BEFORE THE LAST REMNANTS FINALLY MELTED. BY
THE END OF THE MONTH...THE LAKE SUPERIOR WATER LEVEL WAS OVER 14
INCHES HIGHER THAN IN JUNE 2013 AND ABOUT 7 INCHES ABOVE THE LONG
TERM NORMAL. THE LEVEL OF LAKES MICHIGAN/HURON ON 6/30 WAS ABOUT 15
INCHES HIGHER THAN DURING LAST JUNE BUT STILL 4 TO 5 INCHES BELOW
THE LONG TERM AVERAGE.

HIGHEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...92 NEAR BARAGA ON 6/28

LOWEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...28 AT A SITE 5 MILES INLAND FROM
                               MUNISING ON 6/14

HIGHEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...64.3 DEGREES INLAND FROM ESCANABA AND AT
                               A SITE 6 MILES INLAND FROM ONTONAGON

LOWEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...55.2 DEGREES AT JACOBSVILLE IN HOUGHTON
                              COUNTY

HIGHEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...5.63 INCHES AT NEGAUNEE IN MARQUETTE
                                 COUNTY

LOWEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...2.03 INCHES AT NEWBERRY

JUNE 2014 WEATHER ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN WAS DOMINATED BY A VERY
CHANGEABLE...ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN THAT FEATURED SOME HEAVY RAINS
AND VARIABLE PERIODS OF WARM AND CHILLY WEATHER. MOST LOCATIONS
REPORTED ABOVE NORMAL JUNE PRECIPITATION...WITH AS MUCH AS 5.63
FALLING AT NEGAUNEE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY...ALMOST DOUBLE THE MONTHLY
NORMAL OF 2.84 INCHES. IRONWOOD MEASURED 5.52 INCHES OF RAIN...ABOUT
150 PERCENT OF THE JUNE AVERAGE. BUT AS IS OFTEN THE CASE WITH
SUMMER CONVECTION...A FEW LOCATIONS MISSED THE BULK OF THE SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT DUMPED HEAVY RAIN AT OTHER PLACES. NEWBERRY
REPORTED ONLY 2.03 INCHES OF RAIN...LESS THAN 70 PERCENT OF THE
USUAL JUNE PRECIPITATION. DESPITE THE ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN AND
LARGE SWINGS IN TEMPERATURE...THERE WAS ALMOST A NEAR ABSENCE OF
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN IN JUNE.

THE OVERALL WETTEST TIMES WERE THE FIRST 2 DAYS OF THE MONTH...ON
6/20...6/23 THROUGH 6/24 AND FROM 6/27 INTO 6/29. ON 6/1 AND
6/2...WAVES OF LOW PRESSURE MOVING NORTHEAST ALONG A SLOW-MOVING
COLD FRONT INTERACTED WITH A WARM AND HUMID AIRMASS IN PLACE OVER
THE UPPER LAKES. THE RESULT WAS SOME HEAVY SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS... ESPECIALLY OVER THE WEST HALF OF THE UPPER
PENINSULA...WHERE OVER 2 INCHES OF RAIN INUNDATED SOME PLACES DURING
THIS TIME. AS MUCH AS 2.68 INCHES FELL AT WITCH LAKE IN MARQUETTE
COUNTY...2.50 INCHES NEAR ONTONAGON AND 2.49 INCHES NEAR CHASSELL IN
HOUGHTON COUNTY. A BAND OF HEAVY RAIN SET UP OVER CENTRAL UPPER
MICHIGAN ON 6/20 AND DROPPED 1 TO 2 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION IN A
SWATH FROM NEAR MARQUETTE TO MANISTIQUE. A LOCATION JUST SOUTH OF
WETMORE NEAR THE ALGER-DELTA COUNTY BORDER REPORTED 2.23 INCHES.

A SERIES OF DISTURBANCES MOVING NORTHEAST ALONG ANOTHER SLOW-MOVING
COLD FRONT RESULTED IN SOME MORE LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINS ON 6/23 AND
6/24. THE MARQUETTE NWS OFFICE IN NEGAUNEE REPORTED 2.01 INCHES
DURING THIS TIME. A TRIO OF DISTURBANCES CROSSING THE GREAT LAKES
LIFTED SOME VERY WARM...HUMID AND UNSTABLE AIR IN PLACE OVER UPPER
MICHIGAN FROM LATE ON 6/27 THROUGH 6/29. TOTAL RAINFALL DURING THIS
TIME WAS AS HIGH 1.91 INCHES AT WATERSMEET IN GOGEBIC COUNTY. THE
ONLY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS TO IMPACT THE U.P. IN JUNE OCCURRED IN THE
EVENING ON 6/29...WHEN THERE WAS SOME WIND DAMAGE AND/OR LARGE HAIL
ASSOCIATED WITH SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS IN GOGEBIC...IRON AND
HOUGHTON COUNTIES.

IN GENERAL...INLAND LOCATIONS ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN REPORTED AN
ABOVE NORMAL MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE...AS MUCH AS 2 DEGREES ABOVE
AVERAGE AT A SITE 6 MILES SOUTH OF ONTONAGON. ON THE OTHER HAND...
LOCATIONS NEAR THE GREAT LAKES...WHERE SOME ICE STILL LINGERED ON
LAKE SUPERIOR AS LATE AS EARLY JUNE...WERE UP TO 3 TO 4 DEGREES
COOLER THAN NORMAL IN JUNE DUE TO THEIR PROXIMITY TO THE VERY CHILLY
LAKE WATERS. MEAN MONTHLY TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM AS LOW AS 55 NEAR
THE LAKES TO ALMOST 65 DEGREES AT THE WARMER LOCATIONS ACROSS THE
INTERIOR...8 TO 12 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THE MAY AVERAGES.

THE WARMEST WEATHER OCCURRED DURING THE LAST 3 DAYS OF JUNE...WHEN
MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES WERE AS MUCH AS 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THE MERCURY REACHED 90 OR HIGHER AT A FEW LOCATIONS ON 6/28
AND 6/30...INCLUDING THE MONTHLY HIGH OF 92 AT A SITE A COUPLE MILES
WEST OF BARAGA ON 6/28. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES WERE ALSO 10 TO 15
DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 6/1 AND 6/2...BUT THIS WARMTH WAS DUE
MAINLY TO RELATIVELY HIGH MINIMUMS. IN FACT...SOME PLACES REPORTED A
DAILY RECORD HIGH LOW TEMPERATURE ON 6/1 AND/OR 6/2. ON THE OTHER
HAND...THERE WERE PERIODS OF VERY COOL WEATHER DURING MAINLY THE
SECOND WEEK OF JUNE AND PARTS OF THE THIRD AND FOURTH WEEKS. MEAN
DAILY TEMPERATURES RAN UP TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON 6/13 AND
6/14...6/20...AND 6/24 AND 6/25. THE THERMOMETER DIPPED INTO THE 30S
AT SOME OF THE COOLER INTERIOR LOCATIONS IN THE EARLY MORNING ON
6/4...6/5...6/8 THROUGH 6/10...6/13...6/14 AND 6/26. THE THERMOMETER
BOTTOMED OUT AS LOW AS 28 JUST INLAND FROM MUNISING DURING THE
COOLEST MORNING ON 6/14.

                        JUNE WEATHER SUMMARY

WARM AND HUMID WEATHER WAS THE RULE THROUGH THE FIRST TWO DAYS OF
JUNE UNDER A SOUTHWEST FLOW OF AIR BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE
MID ATLANTIC STATES AND LOW PRESSURE MOVING FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS
INTO MINNESOTA. AS A SERIES OF UPPER DISTURBANCES AND WEAKER LOW
PRESSURE WAVES MOVED NORTHEAST AND INTERACTED WITH THE UNSTABLE
AIRMASS IN PLACE OVER UPPER MICHIGAN...THERE WERE NUMEROUS SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS ON 6/1 AND 6/2. SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS CAUSED
GUSTY WINDS...SMALL HAIL AND TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS. THE HEAVIEST RAIN
FELL OVER THE WEST HALF OF THE UPPER PENINSULA...WHERE OVER 2 INCHES
OF RAIN INUNDATED SOME PLACES DURING THIS TIME. AS MUCH AS 2.68
INCHES FELL AT WITCH LAKE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY...2.50 INCHES NEAR
ONTONAGON AND 2.49 INCHES NEAR CHASSELL IN HOUGHTON COUNTY. SINCE
THE GREAT LAKES WATER TEMPERATURES WERE STILL VERY CHILLY...AREAS OF
DENSE FOG PLAGUED LOCATIONS MAINLY NEAR THE LAKE SHORES. THE MERCURY
FELL NO LOWER THAN 60 TO 65 ON 6/1 AND 6/2...ESTABLISHING NEW RECORD
HIGH MINIMUMS AT SOME LOCATIONS ON BOTH DAYS. ALTHOUGH DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES WERE NOT AS ANOMALOUSLY WARM...THE MEAN DAILY
TEMPERATURE ON 6/1 AND 6/2 STILL RAN 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE
DUE TO THE OVERNIGHT WARMTH.

AS THE DEEPER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKED THROUGH NORTHWEST ONTARIO
DURING THE NIGHT ON 6/2-6/3...ITS ATTENDANT COLD FRONT CROSSED UPPER
MICHIGAN...ENDING ANY LINGERING SHOWERS IN THE MORNING ON 6/3.
NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING UP TO 30 MPH BEHIND THIS FRONT AND IN
ADVANCE OF HIGH PRESSURE IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS DROVE A DRY AND
SEASONABLE AIRMASS INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES...RESULTING IN NEAR
NORMAL DAILY TEMPERATURES ON 6/3 THROUGH 6/5 AND AT LEAST SOME
SUNSHINE ON EACH OF THOSE DAYS. THE PASSAGE OF TWO WEAK LOW PRESSURE
TROUGHS AND THE RETURN OF SOMEWHAT MORE HUMID AIR IN THE SOUTHWEST
FLOW OF AIR TO THE WEST OF HIGH PRESSURE TRACKING TOWARD THE MID
ATLANTIC STATES RESULTED IN SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS FROM LATE ON 6/5
INTO THE EVENING ON 6/6. AS MUCH AS 0.69 INCH OF RAIN FELL AT
RANDVILLE IN DICKINSON COUNTY UNDER ONE OF THE HEAVIER STORMS ON
6/6. THE MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURE ON 6/6 RAN FROM 5 TO 10 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL.

MORE NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED ON 6/7 AND
IMPACTED MAINLY WEST AND CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN AS A WAVE OF LOW
PRESSURE MOVED NORTHEAST ALONG A COLD FRONT PUSHING INTO THE UPPER
GREAT LAKES. SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS OVER THE CENTRAL U.P.
DROPPED SOME HEAVY RAIN AND SMALL HAIL IN THE AFTERNOON BEFORE THE
SHOWERS DIMINISHED FOLLOWING THE FRONTAL PASSAGE AND COOLER AIR
INVADED THE AREA LATE IN THE DAY AND THROUGH THE NIGHT ON 6/7-6/8.
MANY LOCATIONS IN THIS AREA REPORTED 0.25 TO 0.50 INCH OF RAIN ON
6/7. AS MUCH AS 0.79 INCH FELL AT NEGAUNEE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY. THE
THERMOMETER AVERAGED NEAR NORMAL ON 6/7.

WITH THE APPROACH OF HIGH PRESSURE AND CLEARING SKIES...SOME PATCHY
FOG DEVELOPED IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON 6/8 AND BECAME LOCALLY
DENSE...ESPECIALLY NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR...AS THE THERMOMETER DIPPED
INTO THE 30S AT SOME INTERIOR COLDER LOCATIONS. ANY MORNING FOG ON
6/8 GAVE WAY TO A MOSTLY SUNNY AFTERNOON AS THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM
MOVED OVER THE UPPER LAKES. ALTHOUGH SOME HIGH CLOUDS IN ADVANCE OF
A WEAK UPPER DISTURBANCE APPROACHING FROM THE WEST MOVED IN DURING
THE NIGHT ON 6/8-6/9...THERE WERE MORE LOW TEMPERATURES IN THE 30S
OVER MAINLY THE INTERIOR CENTRAL AND EAST CLOSER TO THE DEPARTING
HIGH. A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS FELL OVER WESTERN UPPER MICHIGAN ON 6/9 AS
THE INCOMING DISTURBANCE BRUSHED THE AREA...BUT ANY RAINFALL WAS NO
MORE THAN A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH. HIGH PRESSURE OVER LAKE
SUPERIOR THEN BROUGHT COOL AND DRY WEATHER INTO THE DAY ON 6/11.
THERE WERE MORE MINIMUM TEMPERATURES IN THE 30S AT SOME OF THE
INTERIOR COLD SPOTS DURING THE NIGHT ON 6/9-6/10...AND MEAN DAILY
TEMPERATURES ON 6/8 THROUGH 6/10 AVERAGED 5 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.

A PAIR OF LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG UPPER
DISTURBANCE DIGGING INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES INFLUENCED UPPER
MICHIGAN WEATHER ON 6/11 INTO 6/13. THE FIRST OF THESE LOWS MOVED
OVER LOWER MICHIGAN ON 6/11 AND BROUGHT SOME RAIN TO AREAS MAINLY
EAST OF ESCANABA AND MUNISING WHILE CONDITIONS REMAIN MOSTLY SUNNY
OVER THE WEST. ONCE THE LOW WEAKENED AND MOVED FARTHER EAST...THIS
PRECIPITATION ENDED BY THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON 6/12...BUT NOT
BEFORE DROPPING UP TO 0.25 INCH AT NEWBERRY. WHILE THE RAIN WAS
DIMINISHING OVER THE EAST...MORE SHOWERS DEVELOPED OVER THE WEST
AHEAD OF THE SECOND LOW AND ITS ATTENDANT COLD FRONT IN MINNESOTA.
THESE SHOWERS FELL HEAVIEST OVER THE NORTHWEST AND THEN ENDED BY
LATE IN THE DAY ON 6/12 FOLLOWING THE COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. WEST
WINDS GUSTING UP TO 40 TO 45 MPH INTO THE MORNING ON 6/13 OVER THE
WEST ADVECTED ANOTHER SHOT OF COOLER CANADIAN AIR INTO THE UPPER
LAKES AND CAUSED A GOOD DEAL OF CLOUD COVER ALONG WITH A FEW MORE
SHOWERS OVER MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE KEWEENAW. MANY PLACES
OVER THE WEST LOGGED 0.25 TO 0.75 INCH OF RAIN ON 6/12 INTO EARLY
6/13. UP TO 0.87 INCH FELL AT THE HOUGHTON COUNTY AIRPORT NEAR
CALUMET. SINCE THE SHOWERS WERE MORE ISOLATED OVER THE SOUTHEAST
HALF...NO MORE THAN A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH FELL SOUTHEAST OF
LINE FROM MARQUETTE TO IRON MOUNTAIN. THE APPROACH OF HIGH PRESSURE
BROUGHT DIMINISHING WINDS AND MORE SUNSHINE BY THE AFTERNOON ON
6/13. THE MERCURY AVERAGED NEAR NORMAL ON 6/11 AND 6/12...BUT MEAN
READINGS DROPPED TO AROUND 10 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE ON 6/13 UNDER
THE INCOMING CANADIAN AIRMASS. MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES NEAR LAKE
SUPERIOR ON 6/13 HELD IN THE 50S AND ROSE NO HIGHER THAN 53 AT
MUNISING AND GRAND MARAIS DESPITE THE RETURN OF MORE SUNSHINE.

AS THE COOL CANADIAN HIGH TRACKED ACROSS THE U.P. AND WINDS TURNED
CALM UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES DURING THE NIGHT ON 6/13-6/14...
TEMPERATURES PLUNGED INTO THE 30S AT MANY OF THE COOLER INTERIOR
LOCATIONS AND AS LOW AS 28 JUST INLAND FROM MUNISING. BUT THIS HIGH
RETREATED QUICKLY TO THE EAST...ALLOWING MORE CLOUDS AND SOME
SHOWERS WELL EAST OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND WARM FRONT IN THE
NORTHERN PLAINS TO PUSH INTO WESTERN UPPER MICHIGAN ON 6/14.
AS THE LOW AND WARM FRONT TRACKED TO THE NORTHEAST AND INTO
NORTHWEST ONTARIO BY EARLY 6/16...A STRONGER SOUTH WIND THAT GUSTED
UP TO 45 MPH ON 6/15 DREW MOISTER AIR OVER THE UPPER GREAT LAKES. A
BAND OF SHOWERS AND SOME THUNDERSTORMS TRACKED ACROSS THE UPPER
PENINSULA ON 6/15 AHEAD OF THE OCCLUDED FRONT DANGLING SOUTH FROM
THE LOW. THE FRONT AND SHOWERS MOVED TO THE EAST IN THE EVENING ON
6/15 FOLLOWED BY CLEARING. AREAS OF FOG DEVELOPED BY THE EARLY
MORNING ON 6/16 AND BECAME LOCALLY DENSE. AS FOR RAIN TOTALS...0.25
TO 0.50 INCH OF RAIN WAS COMMON FROM LATE ON 6/14 THROUGH 6/15. A
LOCATION NEAR WATERSMEET IN GOGEBIC COUNTY PICKED UP 0.67 INCH. MEAN
DAILY TEMPERATURES UP TO 10 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE ON 6/14 REBOUNDED
TO NEAR NORMAL ON 6/15.

AFTER MORNING FOG DISSIPATED ON 6/16...THE DAY TURNED OUT MOSTLY
SUNNY AND WARM WITH A GUSTY SOUTHWEST WIND UP TO 30 MPH BETWEEN HIGH
PRESSURE SINKING INTO THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AND LOW PRESSURE MOVING
AWAY THROUGH ONTARIO. MANY LOCATIONS AWAY FROM THE COOLING INFLUENCE
OF LAKE MICHIGAN SAW THE THERMOMETER REACH 80 OR HIGHER FOR THE
FIRST TIME IN JUNE ON 6/16...LIFTING THAT DAY`S MEAN TEMPERATURE UP
TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE. MORE CLOUDS ROLLED IN DURING THE NIGHT
ON 6/16-6/17 AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE CENTER AND WARM FRONT ADVANCING
NORTHEAST THROUGH THE UPPER MIDWEST. A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE FEATURES IMPACTED MAINLY THE
SOUTH CENTRAL INTO THE MORNING ON 6/17...DROPPING 0.25 TO 0.50 INCH
OF RAIN AT MANY LOCATIONS THERE AND AS MUCH AS 0.56 INCH AT LA
BRANCHE IN MENOMINEE COUNTY. THEN SKIES TURNED MOSTLY SUNNY IN THE
AFTERNOON ON 6/17 AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVED INTO ONTARIO. THE MEAN
DAILY TEMPERATURE ON 6/17 RAN 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. AS WAS
THE CASE THE PREVIOUS NIGHT...ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING
THROUGH WISCONSIN CAUSED AN INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER AND SOME SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN ACROSS THE SOUTH CENTRAL
THAT LINGERED INTO THE MORNING ON 6/18. WHILE THE NORTH STAYED DRY
CLOSER TO THE HIGH IN ONTARIO...AS MUCH AS 1.49 INCHES OF RAIN FELL
NEAR GLADSTONE AND 1.47 INCHES AT GARDEN CORNERS...BOTH IN DELTA
COUNTY. THE ONTARIO HIGH THEN ESTABLISHED CONTROL AGAIN...BRINGING
DRY AND PLEASANT WEATHER TO UPPER MICHIGAN FROM LATE ON 6/18 THROUGH
6/19. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON 6/18 AND 6/19 RANGED FROM NEAR
NORMAL TO 5 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE.

THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM IN ONTARIO RETREATED SLOWLY ON 6/20 AND
6/21...ALLOWING FOR THE RETURN OF A PAIR OF UPPER DISTURBANCES...
MORE MOIST AIR AND SOME SHOWERS. THE RAIN WAS MOST WIDESPREAD AND
LOCALLY HEAVY ON 6/20...MAINLY IN A SWATH FROM NEAR MARQUETTE TO
MANISTIQUE. PRECIPITATION TOTALS IN THIS AREA WERE 1 TO 2 INCHES OR
MORE...INCLUDING 2.23 INCHES JUST SOUTH OF WETMORE NEAR THE ALGER-
DELTA COUNTY BORDER. RAINFALL ON 6/20 ACROSS THE REST OF THE U.P.
WAS GENERALLY 0.25 TO 1.00 INCH...EXCEPT LESS THAN 0.10 INCH OVER
THE FAR WEST NEAR IRONWOOD. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL ON 6/21 WAS
GENERALLY UNDER 0.10 INCH. WITH A GOOD DEAL OF CLOUD COVER AND THE
SHOWERS...THE MERCURY AVERAGED 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON BOTH
6/20 AND 6/21...WHEN THE HIGHEST READINGS WERE HARD PRESSED TO RISE
OUT OF THE 50S. THE WEATHER WAS COOLEST NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR...WHERE
JACOBSVILLE IN HOUGHTON COUNTY REPORTED A HIGH OF ONLY 47 ON 6/20
AND GAY IN KEWEENAW COUNTY SAW THE THERMOMETER REACH ONLY 50 ON
6/21...THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER IN NAME ONLY IN 2014. AS SOME DRY AIR
MOVED IN ALOFT DURING THE NIGHT ON 6/21-6/22...LINGERING SHOWERS
DIMINISHED...AND AREAS OF FOG DEVELOPED AND BECAME LOCALLY DENSE.
THIS FOG BURNED OFF IN THE MORNING ON 6/22 AND GAVE WAY TO A MOSTLY
SUNNY AND MUCH WARMER AFTERNOON AS A WEAK HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVED
OVERHEAD. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES RECOVERED TO 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.

THE DRYING TREND ON 6/22 WAS BRIEF. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS RETURNED TO THE WEST AS EARLY AS THE EVENING ON 6/22
AND THEN SPREAD TO THE EAST THROUGH THE NIGHT AS A WEAK DISTURBANCE
TRACKED THROUGH THE AREA. RAINFALL THROUGH SUNRISE ON 6/23 WAS
GENERALLY UNDER 0.10 INCH...BUT AS MUCH AS 0.64 INCH FELL AT
IRONWOOD. A SERIES OF DISTURBANCES MOVING NORTHEAST ALONG A SLOW-
MOVING COLD FRONT APPROACHING FROM THE NORTHWEST RESULTED IN SOME
MORE NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINS ON 6/23 AND
ESPECIALLY 6/24. SOME LOCATIONS LOGGED 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN BEFORE
THE SHOWERS DIMINISHED IN THE EVENING ON 6/24 FOLLOWING THE FRONTAL
PASSAGE DURING THE DAY AND ARRIVAL OF DRIER AIR. THE MARQUETTE NWS
OFFICE IN NEGAUNEE LED REPORTING STATIONS WITH 2.01 INCHES DURING
THIS TIME. SINCE THE DOMINATING AIRMASS WAS RATHER HUMID...THERE WAS
PATCHY FOG...MAINLY NEAR THE CHILLY WATERS OF THE GREAT LAKES. MEAN
DAILY TEMPERATURES REMAINED 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 6/23
BUT THEN FELL TO 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON 6/24 WITH THE
ARRIVAL OF THE COOLER AIR.

THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT FOLLOWED THE COLD FRONT MOVED SLOWLY
SOUTHEAST THROUGH ONTARIO ON 6/25 AND 6/26...BRINGING MOSTLY SUNNY
AND PLEASANT WEATHER TO UPPER MICHIGAN. THE MERCURY AVERAGED 5 TO 10
DEGREES BELOW THE MEAN ON THESE DAYS. SOME OF THE COOLER INTERIOR
LOCATIONS SAW READINGS DIP JUST BELOW 40 IN THE EARLY MORNING ON
6/26 AND ALL THE WAY TO 38 AT KENTON IN SOUTHERN HOUGHTON COUNTY.

ONCE THE HIGH SHIFTED INTO THE SOUTHEAST GREAT LAKES ON 6/27...A
WARMER AND MORE HUMID SOUTHWEST WIND DEVELOPED BETWEEN THIS RIDGE
AND LOW PRESSURE TAKING SHAPE IN THE PLAINS. THE INTERACTION BETWEEN
AN APPROACHING WARM FRONT AND THIS MORE UNSTABLE AIRMASS RESULTED IN
SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON 6/27 AND THE FOLLOWING NIGHT...
MAINLY OVER THE WEST HALF...WHERE WAKEFIELD IN GOGEBIC COUNTY WAS
INUNDATED WITH 1.60 INCHES OF RAIN THROUGH SUNRISE ON 6/28. ANY
LINGERING SHOWERS ON 6/28 ENDED EARLY AND GAVE WAY TO A MOSTLY SUNNY
AND MUCH WARMER AFTERNOON AS THE WARM FRONT SHIFTED TO THE NORTH.
AFTER MORNING LOW TEMPERATURES AS HIGH AS 70 AT PELKIE IN BARAGA
COUNTY...THE MERCURY TOPPED OUT OVER 90 FOR THE FIRST TIME OF THE
SEASON AT SOME LOCATIONS AND AS HIGH AS 92 NEAR BARAGA. SOUTHWEST
WINDS GUSTING TO 30 MPH TOOK A LITTLE EDGE OFF THE HEAT AND
HUMIDITY. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ROSE FROM UP TO 5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL ON 6/27 TO AS MUCH AS 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 6/28.

MORE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARRIVED DURING THE NIGHT ON 6/28-6/29
AS AN UPPER DISTURBANCE APPROACHED THE AREA FROM THE SOUTHWEST. THESE
SHOWERS AND STORMS ENDED OVER THE EAST BY EARLY AFTERNOON ON 6/29...
FOLLOWED BY MOSTLY SUNNY WEATHER. TAHQUAMENON FALLS ON THE EASTERN
BORDER OF LUCE COUNTY REPORTED THE MOST RAIN WITH 0.73 INCH. MORE
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED ACROSS WESTERN UPPER MICHIGAN IN
THE EVENING ON 6/29 AHEAD OF A STRONG DISTURBANCE MOVING THROUGH
MINNESOTA. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS TURNED SEVERE AND CAUSED
DAMAGING WINDS AND/OR LARGE HAIL NEAR WAKEFIELD...WATERSMEET...
CALUMET...HOUGHTON AND A RURAL LOCATION NEAR GOLDEN LAKE IN IRON
COUNTY. WATERSMEET ALSO PICKED UP 0.55 INCH OF RAIN. IN THE WAKE OF
THESE SHOWERS AND STORMS...THE DAY ON 6/30 WAS ANOTHER MOSTLY
SUNNY...BREEZY AND WARM ONE WITH THE MERCURY TOPPING OUT AS HIGH AS
90 AT GAY IN KEWEENAW COUNTY FOLLOWING A MORNING LOW AS HIGH AS 70
AT MENOMINEE. THE HUMID SOUTHWEST WIND OFF THE COOL WATERS OF LAKE
MICHIGAN RESULTED IN SOME LOCALLY DENSE FOG AND COOLER WEATHER NEAR
MANISTIQUE. WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTED AS HIGH AS 40 MPH UNDER
THE TIGHTENING PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN LOW PRESSURE MOVING THROUGH
NORTHWEST ONTARIO AND HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE MID ATLANTIC COAST...
HELPING TO ALLEVIATE THE HEAT. MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURES ON 6/29 AND
6/30 WERE 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.

                          AUGUST FORECAST

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING A GREATER THAN
CLIMATOLOGICAL CHANCE OF A BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE BUT
EQUAL CHANCES OF ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY PRECIPITATION OVER ALL
OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN AUGUST 2014.

                         AUGUST CLIMATOLOGY

AFTER PEAKING IN JULY...AVERAGE TEMPERATURES IN AUGUST BEGIN TO
SLIDE AS THE SUN CONTINUES ITS LATE YEAR JOURNEY SOUTH. POSSIBLE
SUNSHINE DECLINES FROM 892 MINUTES ON 8/1 TO 804 MINUTES ON 8/31...
AND AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ARE ONE TO TWO DEGREES LOWER THAN IN JULY.

BUT SUMMER ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN IS NOT OVER YET IN AUGUST. ALTHOUGH
100 DEGREE TEMPERATURES ARE RARE DURING THE EIGHTH MONTH...SUCH HEAT
IS NOT UNPRECEDENTED. IN AUGUST 2001...BARK RIVER IN DELTA COUNTY
SAW THE MERCURY RISE AS HIGH AS 102 ON 8/7 AND 101 ON 8/6 DURING A
TORRID HEAT WAVE BETWEEN 8/5 AND 8/8. 8/5/47 GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD
BOOKS OVER MUCH OF UPPER MICHIGAN AS THE HOTTEST AUGUST DAY SINCE
RECORDS BEGAN. IRON MOUNTAIN (101)...IRONWOOD (101)...AND DOWNTOWN
MARQUETTE (102) ALL RECORDED THEIR ALL TIME HIGHEST AUGUST
TEMPERATURES ON THAT SWELTERING DAY. AUGUST 1947 IS ALSO THE WARMEST
AUGUST ON RECORD AT IRONWOOD (73.4 DEGREE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE)...
IRON MOUNTAIN (72.4)...AND NEWBERRY (69.6).

ALTHOUGH SUMMER HEAT CAN STILL GRIP THE AREA IN AUGUST...COOLER AIR
MASSES MAKE MORE FREQUENT VISITS TO THE NORTHERN GREAT LAKES DURING
THE EIGHTH MONTH. AS THE NIGHTS LENGTHEN IN AUGUST...FROST BECOMES
A  GREATER THREAT OVER ESPECIALLY INTERIOR LOCATIONS AWAY FROM THE
MODERATING INFLUENCE OF THE GREAT LAKES (LAKE WATER TEMPERATURES
TYPICALLY REACH THEIR HIGHEST LEVELS IN MID TO LATE AUGUST). THE
LOW  TEMPERATURE AT IRONWOOD HAS REACHED FREEZING AS EARLY AS
8/4...IN  1907. BETWEEN 8/19 AND 8/21 IN 2000...SOME SHELTERED
INLAND LOCATIONS REPORTED FROST. AUGUST 2004 WAS THE COOLEST EIGHTH
MONTH IN RECENT MEMORY. MONTHLY TEMPERATURES AVERAGED 3 TO 6 DEGREES
BELOW NORMAL...AND AUGUST 2004 GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD BOOKS IN THE
LIST OF TOP 10 COOLEST AT ALMOST ALL REPORTING STATIONS. PATCHY
FROST WAS OBSERVED OVER THE COOLER INLAND LOCATIONS IN AUGUST 2004
BETWEEN 8/19 AND 8/21.

PRECIPITATION IN AUGUST CAN BE QUITE VARIABLE DEPENDING ON THE
FREQUENCY OF THUNDERSTORMS. THE DRIEST EIGHTH MONTH IN RECENT YEARS
OCCURRED IN 2008...WHEN MANY PLACES ENDURED ONE OF THE TOP FIVE
DRIEST AUGUSTS ON RECORD IN THE ABSENCE OF MUCH CONVECTION. ONLY
0.42 INCH AND 0.44 INCH OF RAIN FELL IN THE CITY OF MARQUETTE AND AT
THE MARQUETTE NWS IN THAT DRY MONTH...WHICH GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD
BOOKS AS THE DRIEST AUGUST ON RECORD AT THOSE LOCATIONS. 2007 ALSO
FEATURED A TOP TEN DRIEST EIGHTH MONTH AT MOST LOCATIONS THAT HELPED
DROP LAKE SUPERIOR TO A RECORD LOW LEVEL. ON THE OTHER HAND...SLOW
MOVING THUNDERSTORMS CAN STILL THREATEN THE UPPER PENINSULA WITH
TORRENTIAL RAIN. A TOTAL OF 11.15 INCHES OF RAIN INUNDATED IRONWOOD
DURING AUGUST 1941.

                           OUTLOOK FOR FALL

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING EQUAL CHANCES OF
AN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL 3-MONTH AVERAGE TEMPERATURE AND ABOVE AND
