Hyperlocal weather for Allegan County, MI


Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) has declared an Air Quality Advisory for July 14th for elevated levels of ozone in west Michigan. Pollutants within those areas are expected to be in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG, Orange AQI) range. The Air Quality Advisory is in effect for the following Michigan counties: In West Michigan: Allegan, Berrien, Kent, Ottawa, Muskegon, Van Buren Ample sunlight in the afternoon along with heat and favorable winds will allow for Ozone to develop beyond the USG AQI range. It is recommended that, when possible, you avoid strenuous outdoor activities, especially those with respiratory diseases such as asthma. People and businesses are urged to avoid activities which can lead to ozone formation. These activities include: refueling vehicles or topping off when refueling; using gasoline powered lawn equipment; using charcoal lighter fluid. Positive activities include: driving less; telecommuting; walking or bike riding; delaying or combining errands; using water-based paints. For further information, please see EPAs Air Now site for up-to-date air quality data: https://www.airnow.gov/

  • Visual Crossing's weather API provides most of the hourly and daily forecast information. The API retrieves data every 2 minutes.
  • An Acurite 5-in-1 weather station supplies temperature, humidity, and pressure data from the beach every 10 minutes. The Acurite station's wind direction and speed data aren't reliable due to topography and the treeline, so the site uses Visual Crossing's calculated wind data instead.
  • Much of the sun and moon data, as well as rain and records, come from Weather Display's calculations. Weather Display interfaces between the Acurite station and the host computer.
  • Verbose forecasts (marine forecast and Today's synopsis) are taken from NWS text file servers.
