Wind gusts, lightning, downpours are biggest threats

A line of strong to severe storms are moving through Southeast Michigan, with watches and warnings active across the area.

Here’s what 4Warn Weather meteorologist Brett Collar is forecasting:

A line of showers and storms will be moving in from the west closer to 6pm or 7pm this evening, and could pack quiet a punch. As these storms move through, strong damaging winds will be our biggest concerns. Winds could exceed 60mph, leaving open the potential of storm damage and power outages. The strongest of the storms should be through by 8pm or 9pm this evening, but that may not be the end of it all.

High resolution models also develop another cluster of showers and storms shortly after midnight, but this second batch has a bit of a question mark around it. The first line of showers and storms is anticipated to be strong, and is expected to steal a lot of the juice within the atmosphere that helps fuel these showers and storms.

With that, the second batch won’t have as much to work with. So while we are expecting another round, the second batch won’t be as strong. Still though, showers and a few storms can be expected for parts of the night and into the morning hours of Tuesday. (Read more here from Brett)
