It's Much Warmer Today, Without as Much Humidity

Our temperature today is around 81 degrees F, which is fairly warm for this part of Michigan. Yet, the humidity is down and there's a cool wind coming off Lake Huron. It's amazing how the lake effects can change the environment. Our weather is changed from a fairly hot day, to a comfortable breeze, like having an outdoors AC. This is considered our last month of summer. Downtown East Tawas is overflowing with tourists everywhere on the sidewalks. Most of the children will be back in school by the first week of September. With this small city, even winter brings a lot of sports minded people. Downhill skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and other winter activities. My goal during the winter months is to stay indoors as much as possible! Photo: Mine from last year

Oh I do hope that the less humid weather moves westerly towards us, that sounds so nice, and cooler temperatures too. Is this Lake Tawas in the photo?

Tawas Lake is about five blocks down our road. This photo is Lake Huron, where I sit and have morning coffee.

@kobesbuddy Lake Huron is really churned up there, it must be after a rain storm, here it is crystal clear.

@Juliaacv This picture was taken last summer, just before a storm. See those dark clouds?

It's cool here too but there's humidity in the atmosphere though we stay close to the river.

Near the lake, it's always cooler and more comfortable during the summer.

@kobesbuddy It's the same here. River,lake and sea sides are cooler so people move for a holiday to those areas in summer.

This is a very nice photo of Lake Tawas. I hope that the nice breeze will continue to blow and keep the humidity down.

Sounds like you live in a winter paradise for people who like winter sports. Our schools started a week ago.

I didn't realize East Tawas was such a destination. I hibernate all winter too!

I worked most of the day today but was told that the temps here were in the high eighties with the heat index in the upper nineties but we don't have a lake nearby to get the breezes. Glad you were able to enjoy that.

It is nice to learn that the weather living near Lake Huron is nice to keep the heat away from harming anyone.

Lovely lake. My little town has an antiques festival going on downtown. I really don't need to fill this old house with more antiques. Maybe I'll wander around downtown with my sister when she visits next week.

We had an art festival in Tawas City, in July. People make handmade items to sell. They each set up a booth, to keep them out of the direct sunlight.

I miss Michigan, and Lake Michigan (where I played), as well.

I have not checked, but I think it is the high 70s here, but it suddenly feels to have warmed up. If it is like this tomorrow, I shall go for a bike ride and do the shopping, hopefully they will have the cat food Mr H likes
