Our second leg of the journey took us south. When we landed the temperature was 75 degrees with a fresh easterly breeze coming off the ocean.

We’re still looking at rain and wind for West Michigan on Thursday. Gusts could reach 40-50 mph. There is also a Marginal Risk of a severe thunderstorm (wind damage would be the threat) southeast of a line from South Bend to Battle Creek to Port Huron. The G.R. NWS says:
MARGINAL RISK FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS I-94 EAST OF BATTLE CREEK THUNDER POTENTIAL LOOKS LIMITED. ANY SHOWER COULD BRING DOWN STRONGER WINDS. THE MAIN WINDOW FOR THE STRONGER GUSTS LOOK TO BE 10 AM TO 3 PM. WE MAY SEE A PRESSURE FALL/RISE COUPLET DEVELOP WITH THIS SYSTEM WHICH TYPICALLY ENHANCES THE GUST POTENTIAL.
