Here in southeast Michigan, there could be an isolated severe storm or two overnight into the early morning hours of Thursday.

Stronger winds of up to 60 mph are the greatest threat here.

Our friends and family in northern lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula could get hit much worse. 

The greatest severe storm threat in the country is tonight from Traverse City to Mackinaw back through the U.P. just south of Marquette.

Damaging winds of 60-75 mph are the most likely threat, but a tornado or two is possible as well. Large hail is also possible in the enhanced threat region.

The timing of the strongest storms up north is from 6-11pm. The storms will move east or northeast, and all should have heavy rain and gusty wind.

All of the storm threat is gone for all of Michigan by early morning Thursday.
