SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -
Severe Thunderstorm Watches and Warning have expired for the Mid-Michigan area but more rain still sits in the forecast.
The line of strong storms developed on the west side of the state, and moved from west to east across Michigan. These storms produced heavy rains and gusty winds for much of Mid-Michigan.
Showers and storms will remain in the forecast over the next several days. We will also see an elevated risk for severe storms Tuesday, with damaging wind and hail as the primary threat.
In order for a storm to be classified as "severe," one or more of the following criteria must be met:
Wind in excess of 58mph
Hail greater than 1 inch in diameter
Presence of a tornado
