Tornadoes, thunderstorms possible in the region


Southeast Michigan is facing the possibility of severe weather Tuesday night, which could include thunderstorms and “isolated tornadoes,” according to the National Weather Service.

Tuesday started off rainy in Metro Detroit, with 1.2 inches of rain observed in just an hour at Metro Airport in Romulus, said Trent Frey, a National Weather Service meteorologist. 

That rain had left water on the roadway on the John C. Lodge Freeway, on Detroit’s west side, northbound at Linwood and southbound at Livernois, per the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Highs could reach 78 degrees in the afternoon, and will fall to about 64 degrees overnight.

The severe weather threat poses its greatest risk between 7 p.m. Tuesday to 2 a.m. Wednesday. During that time, wind gusts in the area could reach 60 miles per hour. 

The tornado threat exists in the band of Southeast Michigan below Interstate 69, Frey said. 

The storms will be the result of warm, moist air coming to Michigan from the south, at the same time a cold front moves in. 

After Tuesday afternoon, the week will turn toward the cool, with highs the rest of the week mostly in the 60s.
