Gladstone Weather & Climate

During late autumn and winter, cold arctic air sweeps across the Great Lakes, and can bring locally heavy snow, known as "snow squalls." Often, while squalls hit one area, blue skies will prevail just a short distance away. Lake effect snowfall contributes between 30% and 50% of the annual snowfall on the eastern and southern shores of the Great Lakes. In summer, the cooling lake breezes have a positive effect on the climate, keeping it from becoming too hot and uncomfortable. Spring and summer in northern Michigan experiences precipitation in the form of rain showers and thunderstorms. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing, golfing, and exploring the countryside.
