Weather: Sizable severe storm risk this afternoon

As the Local 4Casters explain, the overnight thunderstorms were north of the advancing warm front -- those storms were what they call elevated and did not produce any severe weather over southeast Michigan, although western Michigan wasn’t so lucky.

Today, we’re looking at a strong chance for severe weather in the afternoon and evening -- watch the detailed forecast above. The Local 4Casters are keying in on the 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. timeframe for severe weather.

Damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail possible

Southeastern Michigan is under a moderate risk for severe weather Wednesday afternoon.

That is a Level 4 on a 1 to 5 scale of severity risk. Damaging wind gusts of up to 70 mph are possible. There is risk for tornadoes and large hail, too.

Here’s what to prepare for:
