Overview

A surface cold front moved through the area on Friday, bringing areas of thunderstorms to parts of southeast Michigan.  Main threats associated with the storms were heavy rains and winds; with some locations receiving over 2 inches of rain.  This resulted in areas of flooding, along with downed trees and power lines.  Storms started to develop across the Saginaw Valley late Friday afternoon ahead of the front.  As the cold front slowly shifted southeast, more storms developed across extreme parts of southeast Michigan, including metro Detroit.
