WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Craig: A potent low-pressure system and cold front will swing through the state overnight into Monday morning. Rain and strong to severe thunderstorms are possible Sunday overnight. Large hail and damaging straight line winds are the primary threats, with heavy rain and vivid lightning also possible. We remain in a "SLIGHT RISK" for severe weather development. Some of these storms may trigger a Severe Thunderstorm warning. The threat diminishes by early Monday morning. More rain/storms are likely on Tuesday. In fact, this week in general will be on the cooler side. Normal highs have us in the mid/upper 70s, we expect 60s and lower 70s. Have a pleasant week.
