Just because we love winter time in Michigan does not mean that we don't want to see the sunshine.

January 2017 has been cloudy and gray for almost all of the month. Mlive.com explained why the sun has been hiding from us...

"The cloudy times have been caused by a combination of weather patterns. The weather pattern has varied from cold with lake clouds to warm with storm system clouds. And there was that nine day mild period when there was virtually no wind and several days of dense fog."


Here Is The Tally Of The Sunny Days We Have Had In Michigan...

  • Grand Rapids has had no clear days in January 2017
