First Alert Forecast: sunny and warm ahead of the next storm

In the weeks following Michigan's Severe Weather Awareness Week, meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Marquette will be visiting several counties across Upper Michigan providing storm spotter training. A few storms are possible, butthe likelihood of anything severe remains low and mainly south of IN at this time! We could still have some lingering mainly-light showers into Saturday evening but even those should be wrapping up by before midnight. "Gusty northeast winds during the height of this storm will increase the potential for blowing and drifting snow, and also power outages where the heaviest ice falls".

A powerful spring storm will move our way Friday night and Saturday.

Then a high pressure will build back in rising temperatures once again and drying things out. The timing of this system needs to be watched as we could see a few strong to severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. Large hail, damaging winds, even a few tornadoes are not out of the question. The newest update for your First Alert weather app will allow you to customize individual alerts, including severe thunderstorm, tornado, and flooding. If they arrive in the afternoon, we could have a much higher risk for severe weather. Rainfall accumulation forecasts are expected to range between.25-inches to.75-inches in the heaviest downpours. The cool air will be short-lived though, with highs in the 70s Tuesday and low 80s on Wednesday.

Rain will end early Sunday; the day will be mostly cloudy, breezy and colder, with temperatures falling into the 50s.
