White-Cloud is a small community located approximately 50 miles north of Grand Rapids in the west-central portion of Michigans Lower Peninsula. It serves as the county seat for Newaygo County and has a population of about 1,400.

White Cloud Weather & Climate

Central Michigan , on the Lower Peninsula, has four distinct seasons, with weather that can be quite variable. This is because the state is nearly surrounded by water, and the climate is influenced both by warm, humid air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico, and cold, dry air from the Arctic. The central region of the Lower Peninsula has warm summers with precipitation in the form of showers and thunderstorms. The climate is somewhat influenced by a lake effect, which helps keep temperatures mild during the summer and increases the moisture content in the air throughout the year. In the winter, this moisture condenses as snow as it reaches the land, creating heavy snowfalls in some areas, known as snow squalls. Autumn is often the sunniest time of the year in Michigan.
