West Michigan – The Storm Predication Center has expanded the chance of severe thunderstorms on Wednesday. The Marginal Risk area now includes parts of West Michigan mainly from I-96 and south. The primary threat is wind gusts to 60 mph but there is a very small chance of a tornado.


Low pressure will track into Wisconsin during Wednesday afternoon with showers and thunderstorms crossing Lake Michigan. The first line of thunderstorms should move over West Michigan between 2-6 PM.


Another line of showers and thunderstorms is possible later Wednesday evening ahead of a cold front. The front will pass through the area early Thursday, ending the chance of thunderstorms.

Temperatures ahead of the front on Wednesday will climb into the mid 50s to lower 60s across West Michigan.
