KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The National Weather Service says they were seeing enough rotation in the air aloft to issue a tornado warning late yesterday afternoon in Kalamazoo County, though it never even got windy at ground level. Meteorologist Brian Meade, at the Grand Rapids office says it’s really up to the radar operator at the time to analyze the conditions...and make the call. He says stability and cool temperatures at the lower elevations, where their distant radar can’t see, apparently kept tornadoes from forming. He says it was the one element that prevented what could have been a damaging day of weather. There was some rain and some hail, but no severe winds. The rest of the week should be spectacular, with sunny and warm conditions thru Sunday.
