WEST MICHIGAN – After a few showers and thunderstorms hanging around through Friday morning, a WIND ADVISORY has been posted by the National Weather Service from 9 A.M. through 6 P.M. on Friday.

The advisory has nothing to do with the storms, but the winds are expected increase behind a cold front from the southwest to west at 10 to 20 mph. Gusts of 40+ mph are expected. The thumbnail attached to this story shows the counties included. Those counties include Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Eaton, Ionia, Kalamazoo, Kent, Mecosta, Montcalm, Ottawa, and Van Buren.
