Thunderstorms Rumbled Our Thursday Afternoon - Mid Michigan

It was an interesting afternoon as small cells of thunderstorms formed over the Alma/Ithaca areas late Thursday, and moved in a southeasterly direction as they continued to grow. For our area, it was intermittent thundershowers. But areas to our north (Saginaw) got the heaviest rain with a lot of street flooding. As they continued to grow, by the time they reached the greater Detroit area, they were quite powerful. I haven't heard of too much wind damage but very intense thunder and lightning. It brought back memories of my childhood in Oakland County where we would get 2-3 of these types of storms every summer. Here, where I live now, we never get them. I gotta admit that I miss them even though they scared me to death when I was a kid. My daughter, who lives in Mt. Clemens, posted on Facebook that it was scary. Looking at the radar now, I see storms forming in that same area and moving to the southeast. But temps today are expected to remain in the 70s, so I don't think that these will be nearly as strong. Regardless, we certainly don't need any more rain.

OUR FORECAST:

Today: A chance of showers and thunderstorms until noon, then showers and thunderstorms likely. Mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s. Northwest winds 5 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 70%.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Lows 58 to 62. Light winds from the north. Chance of rain 70%.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 60% chance of light showers. Highs 72 to 76. North winds 5 to 15 mph.

Saturday Night: Partial clearing with lows in the upper 50s. North winds from 5 to 15 mph.

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
