LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Heavy rain is ongoing, but the mid-Michigan area missed out on severe weather that heavily impacted other areas of the U.S.

Meteorologist David Young said that between one and two inches of rain could come down, which could lead to localized flooding in some areas.

Young advised those who have to travel on the roads.

Lightning will calm down after midnight, but strong winds will persist.

Multiple mid-Michigan counties have received Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, including Barry, Calhoun, Jackson and Eaton counties.

We have the chance for severe storms in mid-Michigan Friday evening.

A large storm system is moving in from the west that will kick up storms from Texas all the way up to Michigan, some of which could be severe.

While the greatest potential for severe storms remains west of us in Illinois and Iowa, there is still the potential for hail and damaging winds across Mid-Michigan.

Hail could reach up to 1” (quarter-sized) and winds could gust to over 60 mph with some storms.

The greatest potential for severe weather resides with a round of storms that will begin moving into our area between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. Friday.
