   Mesoscale Discussion 0898
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1154 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

   Areas affected...Northern Lower Michigan

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 281654Z - 281800Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...Storms developing and moving in from Lake Michigan may
   pose an isolated damaging wind threat.  A WW issuance is not
   anticipated for this activity.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered convection is increasing in coverage and
   intensity over northwestern Lower Michigan at this time.  This is
   likely in response to modest surface-based destabilization ongoing
   (fostering 500-1000 J/kg MUCAPE) and lift from an approaching
   mid-level vortmax over northwestern Wisconsin and on the nose of a
   40-45kt mid-level jet streak approaching the region from the
   southwest.  These ingredients will result in a increasing, but
   lower-end threat for isolated damaging wind gusts and hail over the
   next couple of hours.  This threat will likely not necessitate a WW
