Monday Evening/Night Showers/StormsSeptember 17th, 2012 at 5:10 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Showers and a few non-severe thundershowers moving through the area. Two trees down from thunderstorm winds in the Ludington Area. Many reports of small hail with these storms in E. Wisconsin and N. Lower Michigan. One report of golfball-sized hail near Rogers City. These storms could also produce gusty winds. We have a Significant Weather Advisory for the entire area (that’s a step below a Severe T-Storm Warning) for the possibility of hail and gusty winds. There’s also a Marine Warning in Effect. Gale Warnings will be out for Lake Michigan for Tuesday for waves 5-8 feet. Stay off the piers and breakwaters. There is also a chance of a waterspout as the cold air comes across the relatively warm waters of Lake Michigan.
