Showers/StormsJune 25th, 2013 at 10:45 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
1:35 PM - The main storm is now between Flint and Lansing and should continue east into Ontario during the mid-afternoon. There are a few lingering showers. I had heavy rain (my gutters are overflowing) and gusts to 20-25 mph at my house around noon. The time of day and the extensive cloud cover that has limited our heating (air is more stable) reducimg the chance for severe weather. We should remain in the low-mid 70s much of the day. Indiana-Michigan Power reports these power outages remain from yesterday evening’s storms: (number of customers without power at 10:45 AM) 2,139 Cass Co, 948 Berrien Co., 382 Kalamazoo Co., 282 Van Buren Co. 203 St. Joseph Co. Michigan. The South Bend area was pretty hard hit. They still have 17, 189 without power in St. Joseph Co. Indiana. Consumers Energy reports 1,320 without power in Branch Co., 104 in SE Calhoun Co. and 605 near Olivet in Eaton Co. More severe weather (mainly wind) is possible later today through Weds. night – see thread below on severe weather outlook areas. Watch for updates on WOOD-TV.
