The Storm Prediction Center has parts of West Michigan in a Marginal Risk area for possible severe thunderstorms Tuesday PM/night. We’re at the east edge of the threat area and the primary threat would be damaging wind. The threat area is generally north of I-96. For us this would be Tuesday night. There is a better chance of severe weather across MN, WI and Upper Michigan

SPC says: “Widely scattered severe thunderstorms are possible on Tuesday and Tuesday night from the Upper Mississippi Valley into the western Great Lakes. Severe gusts appear to be the primary hazard.”

It’s also possible that storms may miss us Tue. night, but redevelop ahead of a cool front Weds. PM. to our southeast.


In the meantime. Look for scattered showers and a chance of a t-shower today. The best chance of rain will be southeast of a line from S. Haven to Lansing. Some slow-moving showers will produce locally heavy rainfall.
