The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning that will remain in effect until 5am Monday morning.

Severe Thunderstorms are Racing across Mid-Michigan at about 60mph causing downed trees and power outages. Behind the rain we will still look for winds to be an issue into the overnight hours.

Weak structures and old Buildings are also at risk as well as lawn furniture and loose debris. Travel can prove difficult for high profile vehicles as well.
