WEST MICHIGAN – The attached snapshot of radar at 10:45 PM Tuesday is already indicating some storms are beginning to form over western Minnesota. Typically, these storms form and dive south and east following a warm front and tracking toward Michigan. While it’s possible to see some showers and storms by daybreak Wednesday and through the morning, the bigger threat appears that it may occur in the late afternoon and evening on Wednesday.

Strong to severe storms will be possible, especially south of Grand Rapids with damaging winds and heavy rain being the primary threats.

After the storms move through Wednesday night, we’ll see sunshine Thursday afternoon and on Friday as temps fall back in to the mid/upper 70s.
