Traverse City Sets Record For Wettest Summer

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 7, 2021

Traverse City had its wettest summer on record this year, experiencing more than seven inches of precipitation above normal, according to the National Weather Service's Gaylord office.

Contributing to Traverse City's overall record summer was August rainfall, with 5.38 inches of precipitation recorded - making it the fifth wettest August on record in the city. Gaylord also had its wettest record on summer, with more than five inches of precipitation above normal.

According to NWS Gaylord, all climate sites across the northern Michigan region "recorded above normal temperatures and precipitation for the month of August." All sites - including Traverse City - fell within the top five warmest Augusts in recorded history, and were also within the top five warmest summers overall. Gaylord, Alpena, and Sault Ste. Marie all had their warmest summers ever, with Sault Ste. Marie reaching its warmest-ever average temperature for August at 70.7 degrees - 5.1 degrees above the city's normal average of 65.6 degrees.
