MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI — Temperatures in the high 40s may not be ideal for walking the beach or wearing shorts, but it sure is a perfect day to give the yard a face lift.

Many Muskegon County residents were found edging, trimming bushes raking and mowing the lawn among several other tasks Tuesday, May 12.

“It’s good working weather,” Norton Shores resident Michael Olson said while working on his yard with help from his brother Jack Olson. The two have been working on the yard for about a week, cutting down trees, sprucing up the flowerbeds and removing vines.

The Olson brothers spoke about how much nicer it was to work on the yard without having to take a break to cool themselves down.

However, warmer temperatures are in the forecast for the Muskegon area, according to the National Weather Service. Wednesday’s high temperature is expected to be 56 degrees, while the high on Thursday is projected for 65.

The weather service’s long-range forecast calls for the chance of thunderstorms this weekend and early next week.
