Updated April 25th Storm Summary Including Interactive Graphic of Storm Reports

Several rounds of thunderstorms moved through the area Saturday afternoon

and evening. These storms developed within an unseasonably warm and moist

environment in advance of a cold front. Strong wind shear in the atmosphere

allowed the storms to organize into squall lines (linear storm structures

with damaging wind gusts). The strongest winds (in excess of 70 MPH)

occurred during the afternoon across Oakland, Macomb, St Clair, and

southern Lapeer counties. In addition to the severe weather, persistent

showers and thunderstorms led to 1 to 3 inches of rainfall across much

of the Saginaw Valley and thumb.
