Second round of strong storms expected Wednesday night

The gusty winds and heavy wind have passed over SE Michigan - but a second wave of storms are currently around Kalamazoo. Additional storms are likely but not as strong as what we've seen. Heavy rain and lightning are expected, however.

We're not quite finished yet! That second round of possible strong storms is slated to arrive mid-evening. We could see an isolated stronger to severe storm develop by 9 p.m. with heavy rain and strong winds.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for Monroe and Lenawee counties until 10 p.m.

All of the storm activity will be out of here by midnight tonight. Lows will remain warm in the lower 70s.

Storms fade around midnight, but the heat will stick through the week. A cold front brings the chance for storms late Friday and leads to a cooler weekend.
