Severe weather forecast changed significantly, now in parts of Michigan.

Storm Prediction Center says severe storms possible in west Michigan this evening.

Main threat of severe weather expected just west of Michigan, but still a concern here.

The severe weather forecast for this afternoon and evening has changed significantly, and has increased part of Michigan’s severe weather chances.

The Storm Prediction Center issued a new forecast at 12:30 p.m., after looking at the latest round of weather data.

They basically shifted all of the severe weather risk areas eastward. The images above show you the earlier forecast from this morning on the left, and the forecast from 12:30 p.m. on the right.

Much of southern Lower Michigan went from a marginal risk of severe weather to a slight risk of severe weather.

i am a little confused, especially now that i’ve seen it move from marginal to slight, so i looked up the difference in the dictionary and now i’m really confused. i think i’ll just go to bed and wake up in the morning, hoping that the risk is actually at the  ‘slim to none’ level.
