Hurricane Lili Affects Michigan Weather

Hurricane Lili might affect Michigan weather patterns. Climatologists say moisture from the hurricane may travels towards the state.

They also say as the moisture settles here in Mid-Michigan, residents will see more rain in the next few days.

Hurricanes do not occur in Michigan because there is no warm water source for the storm to use as a source of energy. Hurricanes are known for their powerful winds, but other factors like the rise in ocean water and heavy precipitation play a larger role in causing hurricane damage.

Climatologists say mid-Michigan is not safe from other meteorological events like thunderstorms.

They say thunderstorms can cause just as much devastation across the state.
