Severe weather possible, this evening

Stay with News 12 for the latest weather updates.

Our weather will be changing quickly over the next 24 hours as a warmer and moist air mass returns to the state.

An area of low pressure will pass through Mid-Michigan this evening and will keep the threat of thunderstorms with damaging winds and to a lesser extent hail and an isolated tornado.

As of 5:50 this afternoon, BGE reported that fewer than 300 customers were without power following the storms. The storms may strengthen some after they push east of the mountains and high ground to our west.

Sunday will thus be a very Februaryish day with sunshine and temperatures topping out in the low 50s.

Most of the midday leading up to the storms remained dry and warming into record territory again with cloudy and breezy conditions and highs in the mid to upper 60s. Severe weather is more likely this afternoon as we're looking at the main disturbance moving into our area from the southwest.

Strong winds, heavy rain and hail from the storm have caused outages across the area.

This mild stretch of weather we've had is about to come to an end.

For the weekend, temperatures are expected to be cooler, and snow showers are possible over all or parts of central, although little to no accumulation is expected.
