Local 4's Brandon Roux reports  all watches and warnings have expired for Metro Detroit, but rain and flood concerns do exist through the morning -- That means some of your local roads may have clogged storm drains and flooded side streets. And be careful driving as hydroplaning may occur as the major highways are still very soggy. Expect light rain this morning tapering off through noon and then only a few hit and miss showers through the afternoon. Highs today will stop in the mid 70s and the winds will be increasing NW 10-20 mph with a few stronger gusts.
