Detroit — The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Ingham and central Eaton counties. 

The weather service reported that radar indicated a severe storm with winds of up to 60 mph and penny-size hail was near Charlotte, moving east at 50 mph. The warning expires at midnight.

Communities affected include Lansing, Eaton Rapids, East Lansing, Dimondale, Okemos, Aurelius, Gresham, Charlotte, Waverly, Williamston, Bunker Hill, Dansville, Bell Oak, Mason, Haslett, Potterville, Webberville, Eden and Holt.

A hazardous weather outlook remains for portions of southwest lower Michigan until midnight; the potential for severe weather exists in locations along and south of Interstate 96. Storms could move rapidly to the east at 40-50 mph, bringing damaging winds, large hail and the threat of tornadoes, the weather service reported.

Also, the weather service has issued a lake shore flood warning for the areas along Lake St. Clair in Macomb and St. Clair counties. High water levels combined with wave action may result in minor shoreline flooding and erosion, especially between Anchor Bay and Harsens Island.

Tuesday's additional rain comes after thunderstorms sent some Labor Day festival goers in Metro Detroit looking for shelter Monday. The city of Detroit received just more than a third of an inch Monday, according to the weather service.

The Detroit Jazz Festival urged attendees to seek shelter after rain began at 5 p.m. The weather also put a damper on Hamtramck Labor Day Festival, in its 40th year, and thousands of attendees at the Royal Oak at the Arts Beats and Eats festival.
