They tested the sirens now at noon in Kent County (first Friday of the month). Three interesting pictures here from from ReportIt. the storms Thursday PM (5/3). The first is (finishing thread later…Matt is on TV). First, a picture of a hail-producing thunderstorm from Greg. You can see the fuzzy, pileus cloud. Click here to enlarge. The second picture of a chaotic sky in Muskegon is from Jim. Click here to enlarge. The third picture from Brian is a shelf cloud associated with a thunderstorm. Click here to enlarge. Here’s storm reports from Thursday for W. Michigan, N. Michigan, E. Michigan (5.48″ of rain in Flint!) and N. Indiana (inc. the Michigan counties that border Indiana). We are not in the Severe Weather Outlook Areas for the next several days. There’s still a fair amount of cloud cover over the area early this PM, but clouds will thin late today and early tonight. The last of the showers are clearing SE Michigan. Saturday looks dry. There could be patchy fog later tonight and early Saturday.
