This is an interesting severe weather outlook map for this (Thu.) PM/night. The most likely state to get severe weather is Arizona (Slight Risk Area). You don’t see that very often. There are small Marginal Risk Areas that include the SW corner of Lower Michigan and the area east of Lansing into the Thumb Area. Much of West Michigan will be dry.

This is an early PM satellite pic. Clouds have been hanging tough over much of the area during the midday. You can see how clear it is over Lake Michigan. We should see the clouds break up some by late in the day.
Here’s storm total rainfall from radar. You can see the swatch of rain that came down Lake Michigan. There’s also the rain from yesterday evening (from Kalamazoo to the Thumb Area). Much of the area had very little rain.
