Tuesday Forecast: More Thunderstorm Chances

Posted at 5:59 AM, May 21, 2013

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely develop again around the Great Lakes during the day Tuesday, with a potential for severe weather in some locations once again.

A line of thunderstorms was moving out of West Michigan Tuesday morning, and lingering clouds and rain-cooled air will keep conditions a bit more stable during the daytime.  Still, temperatures climbing to around 80° in the afternoon will provide fuel for more storms to pop.

Current computer model forecasts indicate that the best chance of seeing strong storms Tuesday will be in the central and eastern portions of Lower Michigan.  Damaging straight-line winds will again be the greatest threat.

More rain will develop Wednesday as an area of low pressure slides through West Michigan, with showers lingering into Thursday as cooler air arrives in the region.
