This title contains decades of weather information for twenty-two cities, plus descriptions of Michigan's weather extremes. Don't like the weather in Michigan? Wait ten minutes. It's an old joke, but one that shows how temperamental the weather in the Great Lakes State can be - and how much the residents enjoy talking about it. Paul Gross, a popular Detroit television meteorologist, shows readers exactly how extreme the weather in Michigan can be, from heat waves to bitter snows, ice storms to tornadoes, floods to high winds. He delves into the mysteries of extreme weather, explaining how the state's harshest extremes and biggest storms come to be, helping readers to understand and truly appreciate what greets them when they step outside each day. Weather in Michigan is memorable - nearly everyone can remember when an ice storm knocked out power for a week, when lightning hit a tree nearby, a snowstorm interrupted big plans, or record high temperatures allowed people to play golf in January. This is an opportunity to understand how those things are possible. In addition to an exploration of the state's weather extremes, Gross also provides detailed weather data (highs, lows, precipitation) from twenty-two cities around the state over the course of decades, allowing you to see just how normal - or unusual - the day's weather might be.
