DETROIT – The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Genesee, Lapeer, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Sanilac, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties from 8 p.m. Saturday, to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Welcome to the first afternoon and first weekend of August, Motown.
Widely scattered rain marches over the region from the south. By the end of the afternoon, showers become more widespread. Heavier rain falls this evening through tomorrow morning. Although we need the moisture, it may prove hazardous.
Saturday afternoon will be partly sunny and warm. Humidity remains a comfortable to tolerable levels. Clouds will keep high temps near 80°F. There’s a slight chance of scattered rain showers after 2:00 p.m. ET.
Saturday evening will be mostly cloudy with heavier, more widespread showers. Temperatures will be near 80° before dinner time and in the 70s afterward.
Sunset is at 8:52 p.m. ET.
Saturday night, rain is more likely, especially after midnight. Overnight lows will be in the middle and low 60s.
Rain will be heavy, at times, and will be the source for potential flooding. Anyone in flood-prone areas must move to higher, less-flood-prone ground. Drivers must “turn around, don’t drown” when coming across high-standing water and find and alternate route.
More drought-relieving rain will fall Sunday. The morning will have widespread rain showers and a few thunderstorms. Showers remain possible in the afternoon. Mainly gray skies keep temps in the low and middle 70s.
Monday will be mostly cloudy with all enough showers. Daytime temperatures will be in the upper 70s.
Welcome to primary day, Tuesday. There still is a chance of showers, but they will not hamper people from going to the polls and voting.
It will be not as warm. Highs will be in the lower and mid 70s.
Wednesday and Thursday become sunnier. The mercury stays in the 70s in the afternoon on Wednesday. We get back closer to 80°F or more, Thursday.
