The Storm Prediction Center as placed much of southeast Michigan under a Marginal Risk for severe weather today. The main threats include Damaging winds up to 60 mph, and Large hail up to 1 inch in diameter.

The setup is as follows, tonight a MCS (Mesoscale convective system) will roll out of Wisconsin overnight into the early morning sinking southeast. This will make the morning cooler with a stabilized atmosphere. We may or may not see any rain from it.

After that passes, Cloudy skies will begin to clear, and the early afternoon will be sunny, if not with isolated shower activity. The temps will rise, and CAPE values will as well. Isolated severe thunderstorms are expected to develop mid afternoon before a strong cold front passes over, bringing another MCS from the west, which could be possible severe if it holds together.

Stay tuned for more updates.
