The first round of storms will pass through West Michigan in the morning hours of Monday, April 10. These storms have the possibility of being strong to severe at times.

Frequent lightning, heavy rain and even hail are likely.

The second round of storms come this evening along the cold frontal passage.

Threats from the evening storms include damaging winds, hail and heavy rain. The risk for tornado is low but cannot be ruled out.
