WEST MICHIGAN — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Haleigh Vaughn: All of West Michigan still has the potential for severe storms tonight. The SPC Outlook has been updated, placing locations near I-94 in the "enhanced" to "moderate" risk. Locations near Grand Rapids are under a "slight" risk. Damaging wind gusts and heavy downpours are the primary threats. To a lesser extent, large hail and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. There have already been several reports of wind gusts exceeding 70 mph, and hail up to the size of a baseball. While the ingredients are in place, not everyone will see severe storms. Serious heat and humidity are expected to build in Tuesday and Wednesday. In fact, there are Excessive Heat Warnings and Heat Advisories posted. Tomorrow and Wednesday will feature high temperatures in the lower 90s, with dew point temperatures in the low/mid 70s. Heat index values will likely top 100 degrees! Temperatures should drop back into the upper 70s to around 80 by the end of the week, along with a few showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.
