This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of southwest Lower

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The morning storms are not expected to be severe. Briefly heavy
rainfall and cloud to ground lightning strikes will be the main
hazard with the morning storms.

A slight risk for severe thunderstorms exists this afternoon and
evening. Damaging winds and large hail are the main risks. An
isolated tornado is possible to the south of a Muskegon to Lansing
line. The primary storm motion will be north at 30 mph.

Rainfall could be heavy at times possibly leading to localized
urban and poor drainage flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

An increased potential for small stream and urban flooding exists
Saturday into Saturday night. This risk will become more elevated
if the bands of showers and thunderstorms stall out or repeat over
the same area. Rainfall rates could top an inch per hour in the
heaviest cells.

Thunderstorms are possible at times into Saturday night and
possibly Sunday. The risk for severe weather looks low at this
time. Occasional lightning strikes and locally gusty winds are the
main forecasted hazards.


Spotter activation may be needed this afternoon and evening.
