GRAND RAPIDS — The forecast from FOX 17 Meteorologist Ty Shesky: Storm chances will gradually increase through this evening/overnight and through Friday late morning as a disturbance moves in from the west. A few of these storms could be strong to severe with the possibility of high winds. A cold front sliding through late Friday night and early Saturday morning will likely bring additional thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall to the area. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible along and south of I-96 with the cold front during the evening hours.
