MID-MICHIGAN — Look for rain to develop from south to north as we head through the mid/late morning hours. There may be a rumble of thunder as well. Parts of Mid-Michigan currently fall under a MARGINAL RISK for severe storms on Wednesday and Thursday, which is the lowest risk. Strong wind gusts, hail, and heavy downpours are possible, although any severe storms (if we see them) will be very isolated and short-lived if they develop. An isolated tornado can't be ruled out this evening, especially along/south of the I-94 corridor where the best dynamics with wind shear and energy exist. This system will be a slow mover, so that means more shower and storm chances Thursday. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s/lower 70s both days. The chance of rain lingers into Friday until this system pulls completely out of the region. Cloud cover begins breaking up Saturday with partly cloudy skies expected. Plenty of sunshine and heat return for Sunday and Memorial Day with highs in the 80s!
