DETROIT - One to two inches of rain will fall over the next 48 hours prompting flood concerns in Detroit and Southeast Michigan.

A Flood Watch will go into effect across the entire region from Wednesday afternoon to Friday morning. Anyone living in or traveling through low lying areas or near creeks, rivers or stream must stay alert and look out for rising or high-standing water.

Drivers should find alternate routes around big puddles so they do not get stranded. Residents should move to higher ground if flooding threatens them.

Wednesday afternoon will be in the chilly 40s.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Wednesday evening and Thursday.

Chilly air remains over Detroit and Southeast Michigan with temperatures remaining in the low and middle 40s.

Wet snowflakes may enter the mix Thursday night and Friday but with no accumulation.

It is just a reminder of how fickle spring remains. Friday will be the coldest day of the work-week with morning lows in the 30s and highs in the low 40s.

The weekend will be sunnier with a chilly Saturday and milder Sunday.
