Living in Michigan can be exciting. We can have every weather condition known to man happening in the State at one time.

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.
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!
