A storm sliding across the Northern Great Lakes will bring showers and thunderstorms to West Michigan. Warm summer like air ahead of this system will push temperatures into the mid to upper 70s inland with cooler reading to the north at the lakeshore.
Thunderstorms are likely Tuesday night. A few of these storms could be strong to severe with large hail and gusty wind. The Storm Prediction Center has placed part of West Michigan in the Slight Risk for severe weather, mainly along and south of I-96. The prime time for these storms is after midnight. Some heavy rain showers are possible with these storms. By Wednesday the Storm Prediction Center has a Slight Risk for severe weather south of Michigan as the cold front sweeps into the Ohio Valley.
