West Michigan – A weak cold front will bring the chance of a few strong to severe thunderstorms tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has all of West Michigan in a Marginal Risk of severe weather overnight.

Numerous reports of tree damage and winds over 60 mph have been reported this afternoon and early evening over Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota.

The good news is that the computer models have been weakening this line of storms as they move into West Michigan. Our Future Track model shows a line of thunderstorms tracking into the area by 10 p.m. tonight. The strongest part of this line remains over the northern part of the state.

Our Future Track model shows this line of storms has weakened considerably by 2 AM and remains mainly north and northeast of Grand Rapids.

This is only one computer model and some of the other models do have the line remaining intact as it crosses West Michigan. If we do see severe weather tonight, the most likely threat would be strong winds with a small chance of large hail.
