DETROIT – We are tracking storms and rain today in Southeast Michigan.
Current weather alerts:
- A severe storm warning for Monroe, Washtenaw and Wayne counties has expired.
- A severe storm warning for Lenawee County has expired.
Here is the detailed forecast from meteorologist Paul Gross:
At this point, I don’t expect widespread severe weather. That doesn’t mean that some strong or severe gusts of wind aren’t possible, as we’ve seen in the past few days, but most of us shouldn’t see severe weather.
Consequently, the Storm Prediction Center has placed southeast Michigan at a marginal risk of severe storms, indicating the limited number of severe gusts of wind expected. However, remember that lightning is always dangerous: if you see lightning or hear thunder, no matter how distant they are, the lightning is close enough to hit you. And once again we will see torrential downpours with these storms.
Temperatures should rise to about 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius), especially on the east side, where you’ll get the most sunshine today, and then pull back as you would expect with afternoon storms, but it will still be steaming all the day. If the Metro airport officially reaches 90 degrees, then today would be our ninth consecutive day in 90 or more, which would be the second longest streak in Detroit’s climate history! It will be close. Winds from south to southwest increase 10 to 15 mph this afternoon and obviously gust near any thunderstorm.
