This is the Severe Weather Outlook Map from the Storm Prediction Center for this afternoon/tonight (Mon.). There an Enhanced Risk Area across much of Missouri down into NE Oklahoma for mainly wind damage and perhaps a couple of tornadoes. Surrounding the Enhanced Risk is a Slight Risk area that comes into Illinois…and surrounding that is a Marginal Outlook (in dark green) that has been scaled back and moved back southwest. Severe weather isn’t likely over the S. Great Lakes. Here’s Grand Rapids radar:
and regional radar:
Here’s national lightning and W. Michigan lightning. Models have 1/4 to 3/4 inch of rain for us as I write this. Most of us have gone +5 days without rain. We’ll have a chance of a shower late Thurs. night (after high school football is over) and early Friday…then most all of the Labor Day weekend will be dry…high temperatures continue in the pleasant 70s.
