LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The StormTracker 6 Weather Team officially declared Wednesday a Weather Aware Day, but some new information from the National Weather Service shows the chances of severe weather have dropped significantly.

6 News Chief Meteorologist David Young said the first line of storms, which hit earlier Wednesday and led to a Tornado Watch and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for nearly all mid-Michigan counties, hampered the main line that was heading our way this afternoon.

The first line did not allow the second line to warm enough to generate destructive storms.

“I don’t want to lower our guard too soon or too much but for now it looks like we are spared a major severe weather outbreak,” Young said.

However, we are not entirely out of the clear yet as additional storms this afternoon will still have the capability of producing damaging winds, large hail, some heavy rain, and an isolated tornado or two.
