GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (July 6, 2014) — Chances for thunderstorms will gradually increase during the second half of the day Sunday, with the greatest threat coming in the evening and late-night time periods.

A disturbance will fire storms across the western Great Lakes during the daytime, some of which may produce severe weather.  The attached graphic shows the areas that the Storm Prediction Center considers a “slight risk” zone through today and tonight.

We’ll be specifically interested in the line of storms that will arrive from the west in the mid/late evening and early overnight hours.  The timing of that line will help determine how strong it will be — a later arrival time will likely allow the storms to weaken a bit more. The primary storms threats for West Michigan include damaging winds and large hail.

Either way, we’ll likely see at least a decent shot of rain tonight; check out interactive radar and the full 7 Day Forecast on the Weather page.
