Strong storms are possible Wednesday evening and Wednesday night as a remnant area of low pressure from Alberto spins through central Michigan from the southwest to northeast.

Here are the potential storm impacts across southeast Michigan:

  • Heavy downpours
  • Damaging wind gusts
  • Lightning
  • Isolated tornadoes

Some storms may have low-level rotation as the low swings through Michigan; roughly 6 p.m. to midnight. Keep an eye on the radar and our app (Apple and Google Play) this evening and tonight as the timing could change.

Strong storms are more likely on the northeastern edge of an area of low pressure, so the exact track of the low will determine what places may see severe storms.

Rain totals could exceed 1" in thunderstorms.

Be prepared for potential power outages, have a severe-weather kit, and have your phones and devices charged.
