DETROIT – Flood warnings are in effect along the Rouge River on Detroit’s west side from west Warren Avenue north to 8 Mile Road and the lower Rouge River west of Telegraph Road in Dearborn.

Welcome to Sunday, Motown.

After dry conditions Sunday morning, more showers and thunderstorms will pop up this afternoon and evening with very warm and humid conditions. Flooding has been an issue all weekend (from flooded highways to flooded basements). The potential for more exists Sunday.

Sunday afternoon will have scattered showers and thunderstorms develop and plow through the region once again.

Similar to previous days, there is a marginal risk of strong to severe storms. The first raindrops may be scattered and light between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. but pick up in intensity afterward.

We must be on guard for heavy downpours, lightning and damaging wind and hail. The tornado risk is lower than yesterday’s.

It will be very warm and humid. With enough sunshine, temperatures rise to the middle 80s with heat indices in the upper 80s.

Sunday evening will have showers and thunderstorms with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Sunset is at 9:14 p.m.

Sunday night will have scattered showers and storms. Still warm with overnight lows near 70 degrees.

The weather Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is like a broken record. It will be warm and partly sunny to mostly cloudy each day with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible, mainly during the day.

Because wet weather is more likely before nightfall, the Ford Fireworks have a decent chance of happening Monday night. Showers will be heavy at times while the sun is up in the afternoon and early evening. After the sun sets, raindrops gradually become more scattered and move away.
