LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — There is a strong possibility for severe weather in mid-Michigan on Wednesday.

The StormTracker 6 Weather team has officially declared Wednesday as a “Weather Aware Day.”

Meteorologist David Young expects thunderstorms to develop Wednesday afternoon, accompanied by damaging winds, Tornadoes, large hail and heavy rain are all threats, Young said

On a scale of 1-5, Wednesday is considered a Level 3 risk for severe weather.

“The only real uncertainty we have is how warm we’ll get,” 6 News Meteorologist David Young said in a Facebook post. “The warmer we are, the greater the likelihood of severe weather.”

From 12 a.m.-8 a.m., some showers and storms are expected. Some storms could contain hail, but the severe weather threat is very low.

Then, from 8 a.m.-12 p.m., things should be relatively quiet, though a shower or storm is possible. The threat of severe weather remains low.

From 12 p.m.-6 p.m., severe weather is possible. It’s possible that there could be two lines of storms.

If two lines of storms occur, it could alter the heat and lower the chances of severe weather.

If mid-Michigan ends up with one main storm line in the afternoon, then the likelihood of severe weather increases dramatically.
