Prepare For Possible Strong Thunderstorms In Lansing This Friday
If you're outside taking in the partly sunny skies and warm temperatures today, enjoy it while you can because tomorrow is going to look a lot different. And prepare yourself for tomorrow's forecast, because Lansing is in for some severe weather.
The Weather Channel is reporting the "potential for severe thunderstorms tomorrow (Friday, May 20th) night." Apparently, these storms have the potential of being pretty destructive/severe, because the Weather Channel also warns, "Have a plan and be prepared." But be prepared for what, exactly?
High Winds, Thunder, Lightening, and Possible Hail
Looking at the Weather Channel's 10-day forecast, tomorrow's forecast looks intense. We're going to start off the day with high temperatures nearing 90 degrees and some very gusty winds of around 20 to 30 mph. And that's before the severe thunderstorms in the evening. Be prepared for the possibility of destruction caused by the severe winds and rains on Friday. Falling branches and trees can cause a lot of damage. Not to mention the possibility of a stray trash can flying into oncoming traffic.
WILX 10 also says we should be on the lookout for the possibility of large hail with these storms on Friday night. Large hail has the chance of leaving some good size dents in your vehicle, so if you're able to, you may want to park in the garage. And definitely avoid parking underneath a large tree.
Lansing's Weekend Forecast Includes Rain
Friday night isn't the only rainy day in Lansing's forecast; according to the Weather Channel, there's a good chance of seeing showers on Saturday and Sunday as well. Saturday, there's a smaller chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon with some stronger winds. Sunday, it's looking like steady showers throughout the day.
