Pop-up showers Friday afternoon; Strong to severe storms early Saturday morning

Heads up! A few thunderstorms could be strong to severe this weekend.

Most of your Friday will likely be quiet with low rain chances throughout the day.

On Tuesday, severe weather was possible in the region.

The enhanced risk means multiple severe storms are possible, resulting in hail up to 2 inches in diameter and wind speeds of 75 miles per hour or greater. Isolated storms may develop along the dryline during the late afternoon hours, and could become strong or severe, but the Weather Service said chances for them to develop are low.

Police arrest 300 over gun stolen from Delta deputy governor's house
Police are seeking a Steelton man accused of running over a police officer's foot as he fled a traffic stop. They allegedly took mites poison when police stormed at the man's house after complaints from the public.

The weather service advised that the primary hazard with the storms was expected to be damaging winds.

Parts of the Midlands are under a Marginal Risk of severe weather Saturday. However, not all of us will be rain-free. The weather will be cloudy, breezy and fairly cold for April with temperatures falling from the 50s during the first half into the upper 40s by the final quarter. Tonight will be mostly fair and not as cold as last night; most places will see a low in the 40s early tomorrow morning.

Also, even once the main line of storms moves through we could still have the chance for overrunning showers Saturday afternoon. A south wind help temperatures surge into the upper 70s Friday. Michigan Committee for Severe Weather Awareness tells us "tornadoes generally develop from severe thunderstorms, and are more likely to occur when warm, humid air along the ground is forced up rapidly by cooler air and develops into a spinning funnel".

Temperatures will tumble Saturday night into Sunday morning.
