Summary of Severe Weather for September 3rd, 2011

In the late afternoon and evening of September 3, 2011 several thunderstorms fired up ahead of a cold front that was draped across lower Michigan. Outflow boundaries from previous storms in the day provided the lift required to set these storms in motion. Many areas saw brief heavy downpours, but the areas hardest hit with strong winds and hail were along I-94 from Ann Arbor all the way to downtown Detroit.
