Local  We have a slight chance of a shower or t-shower this Fourth of July.  The better bet for rain will be well to our south and east.   (visible satellite loop). (radar here).  We are in the  General Thunderstorm Outlook for Friday and Saturday (but just on the edge of the outlook areas.  We also had 0% sunshine on Tuesday – rare for July.  Michigan weather observations and wind speeds, click here.
