Metro Detroit weather: Flash Flood Watch Saturday evening into most of Sunday

Lows in the 60s

DETROITThe National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Genesee, Lapeer, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Sanilac, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties until 2 p.m. Sunday.

Welcome to Saturday evening, Motown.

Saturday afternoon’s steady rain turns to scattered, light rain in the evening then heavier rain tonight. Sudden flooding is possible and hazardous. Sunday is soggy, especially in the morning. Showers become scattered later but it still remains damp with thunderstorms possible early next week.

Saturday evening will be mostly cloudy with heavier, more widespread showers after sunset. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s.

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.
