MID-MICHIGAN — SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES and a HIGH BEACH HAZARD RISK exists through tonight from Grand Haven northward. Lake Michigan swimming is NOT advised in these locations due to rip current risks and structural currents, especially on south sides of piers. Our forecast of mostly sunny skies extends into today along with hot temperatures and increased humidity for this time of year. We expect high temperatures in the mid/upper 80s. Some locations will push 90! Drink plenty of water & don't forget your sunscreen. Our next chance of showers and storms will occur this evening/night and into early Wednesday. Some of these may be on the strong to marginally severe side with hail and wind being concerns while an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. Mid-Michigan is under a SLIGHT RISK for these potentially stronger storms. For the latest forecast and immediate severe weather alerts, you can always download the free Fox 47 News App.
