The above map is the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for Day 5 – which is Thursday (May 9). You can see the Risk Area comes up into S. Lower Michigan, generally south of a line from Holland to Lansing to Detroit. SPC says: “Significant severe is expected during the first few days of the medium-range period. Large-scale pattern will become seasonally favorable for organized severe during the upcoming medium-range period. Severe thunderstorms, including large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are expected across a substantial portion of the CONUS during the day4-6 time frame.” Stay tuned for later updates. Right now it looks like in a generally cool pattern, the greater risk of severe weather will be south and southwest of Michigan.
