4 things to watch for -- Tuesday, October 29th

From Evrod: Welcome to the work and school week. I certainly hope you had a great weekend! I certainly did! We were out and about all over Metro Detroit this weekend. I ended up at a place that I've always wanted to go to but have not been in the more than six years I've called Metro Detroit home. I took my family to the Outdoor Adventure Center. What a cool experience! There's something for everyone there and it's the perfect place to be when it's raining outside. My boys loved learning about nature and all of Michigan's outdoors. If you haven't been like I hadn't until this weekend, I highly suggest you stopping by as the weather starts to get worse. Your children will enjoy it!

So I totally forgot that pizza month is still going on! We've got Tasty Tuesday, and we're cooking up something great. Our final pizza month Tasty Tuesday. Don't miss it! We can't wait for you to join us from 4:30-7 a.m.

All Morning -- Change in the Air

Clouds are blowing off of a storm moving through the Great Lakes Region Tuesday with really nothing more than cloud cover for us during the day. Our dry air will eat into rain chances, but we should start to see some drips and drops after sunset Tuesday night.

Light rain showers are likely Tuesday night into early Wednesday.
