More Storms for Tuesday Expected
The National Weather Service Doppler Radar indicated a line of strong thunderstorms pushing into mid-Michigan that could bring pea-size hail, wind gusts greater than 50mph, frequent cloud to ground lightning and brief heavy downpours, according to an alert from the Grand Rapids agency. No severe warnings have been issued at this time, but the potential exists. Yesterday, the National Weather Service confirmed it was a tornado that caused extensive damage in parts of West Michigan on Sunday. The tornado packed winds of more than 100mph and formed in conjunction with a Severe Thunderstorm that burdened the area.
Once these storms pass, which is expected to be early to mid afternoon, near-perfect conditions will be ushered in. Wednesday's forecast calls for a mix of clouds and sun and 72 degrees for the high.
