Michigan Weather Is Getting Weirder- 5 Things You Thought You’d Never See
When a meteorite streaked across the sky on January 16, Michiganders freaked out a little. I mean, Michigan weather can be unpredictable, but we’re not used to things falling out of the sky. That meteorite is not the strangest phenomenon to hit Michigan; recall these 5 incredibly uncommon weather-related occurrences we almost never see in the Great Lakes State.
Some thought it was lightning, at first. An explosion in the sky in January 2018 was actually a meteor streaking across the Michigan landscape.
O.K., so the earthquake wasn’t so mighty, measuring a mere 4.2 on the Richter scale, but most people who felt it on May 2, 2015, remember it because we’ve never felt anything like it in the Mitten.
We learned about bombogenesis in October of 2017 as an October storm cause temperatures to plummet and waves to rise as high a 30′ driven by 70+ mph winds.
It sounds like the latest low-budget Sy-Fy movie but a snow tornado actually developed over Lake Michigan near Traverse City in December of 2017.
Not limited to Michigan and much more pronounced in other parts of the country, an eclipse is still a once-in-a-lifetime weird weather-related event.
