Tornado Tracker: see where tornadoes are popping up across Michigan

WHITE LAKE, MI — The National Weather Service reported a tornado spotted on radar in central Michigan on Saturday afternoon.

The tornado was spotted near Remus, about 10 miles southeast of Mecosta, and was moving northeast at 30 mph, the National Weather Service stated at 3:46 p.m. on Saturday, June 26. It is unclear if the tornado touched down in the area.

At the time, the NWS stated flying debris would be dangerous to those caught outside and that mobile homes would be damaged or destroyed. The tornado was expected to be near Lake Isabella around 4:05 p.m., Rosebush around 4:30 p.m., Farwell around 4:35 p.m., and Clare around 4:40 p.m.

However, shortly after emitting the initial advisory, the NWS reported the storm weakened and tornado warnings in Mecosta, Clare, and Isabella counties were canceled.

“The storm which prompted the warning has weakened below severe limits, and no longer appears capable of producing a tornado,” the NWS stated. “Therefore, the warning has been cancelled. However, gusty winds and lightning are still possible with this thunderstorm.”

A tornado watch remains in effect until 8 p.m. for central Michigan. Several other areas of the state also remain under a tornado watch as heavy storms pass through.
