Heat and storms moving out of West Michigan


WEST MICHIGAN, (WOOD) — It was a very active start to our Saturday morning.

Wind gusts up to 70 mph were reported across West Michigan Saturday morning. We’ve received reports of trees uprooted, power lines down, and even some extensive damage to homes.

Flooding is a major concern in Lake and Mason counties, where as much as 8 inches of rain has fallen in some spots.

The threat of severe weather will begin to wind down Sunday. Saturday’s storms helped to wipe out the heat and the humidity in place with a cold front expected to march through overnight into Sunday morning.

Thankfully, the passage of the cold front will bring an end to the hot and humid trend we’ve been stuck in.

Humidity will begin to drop from north to south Sunday, and highs will be about ten degrees cooler than Saturday.

Monday will feel very refreshing, with highs in the upper 70s and low humidity.
