The Storm Prediction Center had placed most of Metro Detroit in a “marginal risk” category for severe weather Friday afternoon, but that entire risk area has shifted south into Ohio. The main threats around here tomorrow afternoon and evening will be soaking downpours with dangerous lightning, and gusty -- possibly damaging -- winds. We will keep you up to speed online and on Local 4 News as we get closer.
