A strong thunderstorm that moved through the area prompted a weather advisory Monday afternoon for northeastern Washtenaw County.

If severe storms develop Monday night, they could produce damaging wind gusts to near 60 mph with the possibility of hail up to an inch in diameter.

Low pressure and a stalled front over the northern Great Lakes combined with warm and humid air in southeast Michigan are fueling the potential for storms, the weather service said. The storms are possible through mid-evening Monday before conditions settle down after midnight, forecasters said.

It will be mostly cloudy with a low around 69 overnight and a 70 percent chance of rain.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a high near 86 and a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The storm threat increases to 70 percent overnight Tuesday with rainfall amounts of between a quarter and a half inch possible.

Wednesday will be a near repeat of Tuesday with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and a high of 85.

By Wednesday night, the threat of storms will subside, and mostly sunny skies with highs in the high-70s or low-80s are expected the rest of the week.
