The risk of severe weather in the Detroit metro area tonight includes an isolated tornado and large hail: what to know


We’re tracking a window of severe weather tonight in southeast Michigan, with a possible isolated tornado, among other threats.

The National Weather Service rates Metro Detroit as ‘Slight Risk’ for severe storms, the second highest of five levels, with the target window between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. until Sunday morning.

The main dangers will be damaging wind gusts to 60 mph and large hail, and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Heavy local rainfall will also be a concern, primarily for low-lying and urban areas.
