April Weather: A minute increase
We have been monitoring Muskegon temperatures to see of April will be the fourth consecutive month of above normal warmth.
With 3 days left temperatures are -.22 degrees. This despite yesterday's comfortable high of 64°.
Still a nice weekend could benefit us all and keep the above average warmth trend going.
