DETROIT (AP) - The National Weather Service is forecasting a chance of strong thunderstorms starting Saturday night through Sunday in much of southern Michigan.

The storms are expected to start in southwest Michigan on Saturday night. Damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph and a chance of tornadoes are possible on Sunday afternoon and evening in southeast Michigan.

The weather service statement says that an unusual amount of warm and unstable air for November is entering the southern part of the state, increasing the risk for the severe weather.

By late Sunday night, colder temperatures are expected to rush back into the area, but strong winds with gusts up to 45 mph will still be around.
