*Warm & DrySouth, Rain/Storms North M-55
*Strong Showers and Storms Tonight North
*Colder Next Week
Severe Threat: The chance for additional severe storms has fallen off. The line of storms is weakening and skies will settle down for several hours. However, after 9pm we expect another line of showers and storms to develop. Right now the line of concern is North of M-72, but I suspect this will be pushed Northward as the focus of evening energy heads towards the U.P. Strong storms can be expected with isolated severe weather possible. Watch out for strong winds and possibly large hail.
This Evening: Those to the North of M-32 are on the cloudier side. Showers and storms are developing now… we will keep a close on them. South of M-72, skies are brighter and winds are picking up. Most of your afternoon will be dry south of M-72, with rain north. with highs in the 70s to low 80s. Winds are from the SW at 10-20 mph with higher gusts. Strong storms should develop north of M-72 after 8pm.
Tonight: Clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms return for areas North of M-72. A line of strong to severe weather is possible North of M-32 into the U.P. Some of the storms could contain damaging winds and large hail. Those to the south remain dry. It will be a warm night with lows in the 60s. Strong southwest winds of 10-25 are likely across much of the Lower Peninsula. Winds should peak near sunrise, where gusts may approach 40, especially along the lakeshore locations.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy skies are the story but don’t look for a lot of rain. Spotty showers are in the forecast with temps holding in the 60s to upper 70s. Winds are from the SW/W at 10-20 mph. Once we get into the evening hours, rain becomes more likely.
Next Week: Monday brings in the clouds and wet weather! Highs drop into the mid-50s to low 60s. Spotty showers are the forecast on Tuesday as a system comes in from the South. A large low-pressure system brings in clouds, soggy conditions, strong winds, and cold temperatures for a few days. Tuesday through Friday is on the cloudy side with occasional rain shower and even some lake effect rain showers. Highs will only be in the 40s to mid-50s!
