MID-MICHIGAN — Potential for severe storms today. Damaging winds are the primary threat, perhaps as high as 75 to 80 mph. To a lesser extent, large hail and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. While the ingredients are in place, not everyone will see severe storms. We think there may be a round of storms in the mid/late afternoon, and perhaps a second round in the evening. Afterwards, we expect some serious heat and humidity to build in Tuesday and Wednesday. Those days will feature high temperatures in the lower 90s with dew point temperatures in the low/mid 70s. A very tropical feel to our forecast indeed! Heat index values will likely top 100 degrees! Temperatures should drop back into the upper 70s to around 80 by the end of the week.

Winds southeast at 5 to 15 mph.
