National Weather Service warning of severe storms rolling in Tuesday evening

The National Weather Service is warning West Michigan to be on alert, as the threat of tornados is high for Wednesday.

According to the latest models, strong to severe thunderstorms will roll in Tuesday evening, as temperatures will rise to 72 degrees by Wednesday afternoon before plummeting to 34 degrees Wednesday night.

The large shift in temperature coupled with a warm front coming in off of Lake Michigan will create ideal conditions for severe weather.

The National Weather Service says the most likely areas that could be hit will be north of 1-96 as large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are possible. Localized flooding may also occur.

Officials are urging residents to “stay weather-aware today through tomorrow.”
