Howling winds on Halloween?
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 02:51:38 GMT —
We've been advertising the potential for heavy rain late tonight into Halloween and lasting into Friday morning.
However, high winds are also possible tomorrow as a strong area of low pressure moves across northern Michigan.
The low itself will be strong enough to produce gusts in excess of 40mph on Thursday night.
Coupled with that, the low will drag a strong cold front through the state which could produce strong to severe thunderstorms.
Although the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) out of Norman, OK analyzes the slight risk for severe area just to our south, it's close enough to Mid-Michigan for us to have some concern for severe weather.
Any thunderstorms that become severe would carry winds in excess of 60mph as the main threat.
This is a situation Meteorologist Jason Adams and I will be watching closely tomorrow, so stay tuned to NBC25.
