MID-MICHIGAN — A mix of sun and clouds to kick off your Friday as we set up for a warm, humid and breezy day with storm chances. Our warmest temperatures for this week will occur today, with highs in the low/mid 80s. A cold front is expected Friday late afternoon/early evening, possibly firing up showers and thunderstorms. The severity and timing of these storms all boils down to the timing of the cold front, which is uncertain at this point. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Mid-Michigan under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather during Friday late afternoon and evening. Hail and damaging wind gusts will be the primary threats mostly after 2 p.m. today through midnight time frames. Showers and thunderstorms persist overnight into Saturday, where a few strong thunderstorms are possible. Some locations fall under a MARGINAL RISK for severe weather as we can see scattered showers and storms all day. A few sprinkles are possible early Sunday, with dry skies and cooler tempertures for the rest of the day.
