Severe Outlook for Saturday

Bill's Blog

This is the Severe Weather Outlook Map from the Storm Prediction Center for this Saturday.  SPC says:  “…there appears a window of opportunity… across Lower Michigan and adjacent portions of northern Indiana and Ohio.  Instability may become sufficient…to support organized vigorous thunderstorm activity, some of which may become capable of producing marginally severe hail and locally strong surface gusts.”

We will also see a thunderstorm or two next week  as remain close to the wobbly front into the middle of the week. Heavy rainfall and local flooding is a concern this coming week.  Here’s the latest G.R. NWS forecast discussion.  Here’s Regional radar:
