On the late afternoon of June 15th, a localized area of low pressure coupled with favorable upper-level dynamics produced numerous showers and thunderstorms mainly south of I-96. The prevailing atmospheric conditions accelerated the intensification of the storms, producing several strong to severe thunderstorms. Hail, measuring between 1-2 inches, emerged as the primary severe weather threat, with several instances of wind damage associated with gusts around 60 mph. Notably, an EF1 tornado developed just west of Lake Erie. This tornado, which remained on the ground for 9 minutes, exhibited a maximum wind gust of 90 mph. In its wake, damage was reported which included multiple large fallen limbs and trees, along with damage to several residential properties.
