Get Set For Stormy Stretch After Sunny, Seasonable Memorial Day


West Michigan will have mainly dry conditions for the first half of Memorial Day with some sunshine.

There is a chance of morning showers on Wednesday, May 29.

Severe storms threaten to bring rain, hail and high winds to parts of northern IL and northwest IN on Memorial Day. Storms won't be as widespread as overnight Sunday, but any storms that do fire may be strong to severe once again. This is where will find the best instability and greatest wind shear, that will enhance the potential for tornado development as we head into the late afternoon and early evening. Tuesday afternoon will have temperatures in the 80s with south winds gusting to 35 miles per hour.

MONDAY: Partly cloudy skies and a few isolated storms will be possible, with a high of 83 degrees.

Thursday, May 30 will be mostly cloudy and warmer with a high in the low 80s and a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon through the evening.

A severe threat remains for Monday and Tuesday with temperatures highly variable as a storm front drapes across the viewing area. Large hail, damaging winds and even a tornado or two can not be ruled out. Storms may bring winds up to 70 miles per hour and half-dollar sized hail to the Chicago area.

Thursday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.
