LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - First Alert Meteorologist Colton Cichoracki says Friday was declared a First Alert Weather Day due to the threat of strong storms, but that is now being downgraded.

While the threat for some strong storms remains, that threat has diminished enough that it is no longer up to the levels it had been trending towards. The greatest threat for severe weather has shifted north.

Storms remain possible between 3 p.m. and 12 a.m. Some could bring some gusty winds or hail. More storms are likely overnight and into Saturday.

There is another chance for strong storms over the weekend, mainly on Saturday morning. Those storms are not predicted to be as strong as what was initially expected Friday.
