On the weather report this evening, our part of Michigan will be getting a threatening storm tonight. It's suppose to include some high winds and heavy rain. There was no mention of tornadoes, but it's always a possibility at this time of the year. We're always on the alert, whenever high winds are in the weather forecast. This storm is predicted to last until late Sunday afternoon. Photo: NOT MINE, Borrowed from Pixabay

I saw the forecast showed the entire state of Michigan involved in this system with Wisconsin and Minnesota. We've got flooding.

We don't have much rain at all, only a few sprinkles. Going to Saginaw today, the sky was cloudy but, they didn't get much rain either. There has been no wind, at all.

Even here in my part where in recent years, winter practically "we don't see it!", in this period of May, the rains were not lacking! I know for information that in the period of September, in your "immense" united area, the country of Florida is usually targeted by hurricanes, of high intensity!

@kobesbuddy On that side it's good for you. Bad for those who populate those areas! We did not need Greta Thunberg, (16 year old Swedish activist), to understand that the climate is changing in recent years? Maybe we already noticed it ... But we "little", no power. The great people of the Earth, instead yes!

@Courtlynn There are storm chasers, that actually follow a tornado as it travels across the land! Some of them have been killed, doing this:(

Wow, I feel for you there. Here in NYC it was a nice day and tomorrow should be okay here. Possible rain for us will be on Monday. Stay safe and I am sure it will not be as horrible as they make it sound. You know how the weather forecasters are, they love drama.

@kobesbuddy Well now with summer hotting hard here, it is getting muggy and raining now. And they say it will be getting hot and humid by the end of the week. Horrible. But where do we go. North? I was thinking about maybe moving at some point to upstate New York. Who knows though.

@inertia4 We get hot weather in Michigan, but not for long periods of time. Yet, we do get the humidity, which makes it feel hotter and very uncomfortable.

Whenever there's an actual tornado approaching, we would get warning sirens.
