The National Weather Service says that thunderstorms will develop later tonight for the Lansing area and some of those thunderstorms could produce heavy rainfall and strong winds. The National Weather Service also says that "an isolated small tornado is not out of the question with these storms".

Rain is in the forecast for the Lansing area for the next several days and locally heavy rainfall is possible each day which may cause some flooding in typical low areas and areas of poor drainage. So, now would be a very good time to check on that sump pump.
