Episode Narrative This severe thunderstorm event was day two of a three consecutive day stretch of severe weather across Southeast Michigan. It also featured the first tornado of the season. The event began with a thunderstorm in Midland County that moved east across the Thumb. This storm prompted the issuance of several tornado warnings, but other than a few funnel cloud and large hail reports, there was only one report of damage. This occurred near Argyle in northwestern Sanilac County and based on funnel cloud reports/photographs, tree damage, and radar signatures, it was confirmed as an EF0 tornado. At the same time this was occurring, a very fast moving squall line with a history of producing damaging wind gusts was approaching the lower half of Southeast Lower Michigan. Although the squall line became less organized and slowed its forward progress dramatically, it still produced numerous reports of wind damage across the area.
Event Narrative A trained spotter reported a tornado touchdown with several large trees down.
