While the Storm Prediction Center keeps the slight risk for severe thunderstorms south of Michigan on Friday, a few strong to severe storms are possible. Large hail and strong gusty wind will be the primary threat. Heavy rain will be possible in locations where the storms persist with many locations receiving at least a half inch of rain.

Right now the weather looks dry for the 5/3 river bank run and for the final day of the festivities in Holland with Tulip Time.
