Looks like April was cooler than average in most places in lower Michigan. Also, it actually turned out to be cooler than March!

Yep, April felt much cooler than March did. Wrecked havoc on the fruit crops as well. Everything budding and blooming in March, then several hard frosts in April, I will be surprised to see much, if any; Peaches, Pears, Apples, and Cherries in this area.

Thats not good ! I still hope we can get the Cherry's around TC ? Also other fruit which seems to come from St Joe/South Haven area. We have a local produce store in town who has several trucks that travel down state every day in season. Business is real good, mostly supplying all the restaurants.

Traverse City area pretty much got wiped out by the frosts/freezes. Though that is all normal, it's just that like you said, the fruit trees started budding in March.

I talked to one grower today that said his crews are just doing maintenance work on the orchard this year to get ready for next year. This year is done for him. Had some pears starting to set, but lost them with the last frost we had.

Looks like historically, after we had a very warm month of March, we have had a cold start to June. And it is happening again this year. Interesting!

Warm March means cold start to June | WOODTV.com Blogs[/So much for the theory that Weather repeat's itself, ? ....or maybe not, as many of us have said before,we all know weather comes around every year. Even the extremes that in our history have actually changed our lifestyles.for ever, leveled out and went back to a more normal swing. I refer mostly the most dramatic, the Dust Bowl, and the migration of so many people to the valley's of California.

Temperature has been in the 50s all day. Great June 1 weather

Detroit NWS posted a summer outlook for SE MI: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/images/dtx/w...tlook_2012.pdf

Summary:
Quote:
Temperature Trends
First 60 days (June-July): Warmer than Normal. There is no apparent reason to buck the warm trend, despite a below normal start to June. The forecast is therefore one of persistence [discussed in next quote].

Last 30 days (August): Slightly Cooler than Normal. The warming tropical Pacific will cause the trades to weaken and allow convection to begin expanding eastward. This is not the only factor, but it is one of the few “knowns” and it is always important. The jet stream stream response over the central/east Pacific could result in temperatures over Southeast Michigan taking a step down toward the end of summer. This gives a chance for what would be the first below normal month in nearly 1.5 years.

Precipitation Trends
Summer (June-July-August): Near normal. Warm season rainfall (thunderstorms) is hard to predict over the course of a season. A warm forecast usually lends itself to a drier one as well, but the signal is not strong enough to warrant a dry forecast. The prospects for a mild strengthening of the Pacific jet could lead to an uptick in rainfall during the last 30 days of summer. Final figures should be near normal.
Quote:
Argument for Persistence
The trends have been steadfast, so why change what’s working?

• Flint has been warmer than normal for 14 straight months, dating to April 2011.

• Detroit has been warmer than normal for 13 straight months, dating to May 2011.

• They are not alone (coming up).

• In many cases, the warm anomalies have not been small…
•• The March 2012 heat wave was the most unusual climate event to ever be recorded in Southeast Michigan.
•• More all-time records fell in May en route to Spring 2012 being the warmest on record.
•• July of last year was the hottest month that Detroit has ever recorded.
•• Recall the non-winter of 2011-2012 which saw below normal snowfall and much below normal snowpack.
