    Severe Weather, Isolated Tornadoes Aim for Detroit

    The weekend will end with damaging thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes targeting Detroit.

    The greatest risk for numerous tornadoes lies to the west, but that does not mean residents and visitors of Detroit should take this situation lightly.

    The line of violent thunderstorms set to cross Detroit during the late afternoon and early evening hours of Sunday will still be potent and pose hazards to lives and property.

    The strongest of those thunderstorms will be capable of producing damaging winds, blinding downpours and frequent lightning.

    The strength of the winds could lead to downed trees, power outages and overturned high-profile vehicles. Falling trees can cause additional damage or bodily harm.

    An isolated tornado or two may touch down and cause destruction.

    All residents and visitors are urged to heed all severe weather-related watches and warnings during this dangerous situation.

    Strong winds following the line of severe weather later Sunday night and Monday morning could lead to additional damage as the city dries out.

    Cooler air will also arrive Sunday night, sending temperatures down into the lower 40s. Temperatures will remain in the 40s on Monday with even colder AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.
