Hey there! I hope that both you and your family are having a wonderful Monday night so far! Just a quick update for you in terms of the weather: the National Weather Service has put Lenawee, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties under a “FLOOD WATCH” from now until 8:00 a.m. ET., tomorrow on your Tuesday due to heavy downpours that could lead to localized flooding. Rainfall totals will likely be between 1 and 2 inches, in most spots. So, it’s a good idea to make sure that all of your street drains are cleaned from any debris so that the water rolls down the streets in your neighborhoods into your street drains easily, check on your neighbors, and move both appliances and furniture to higher ground if your basements are prone to flooding in. Overnight low temperatures will flirt with the middle 60s along with light winds blowing from the south-southwest at 5 to 10 mph. This evening’s sunset was at 9:07 p.m. ET., and tomorrow morning’s sunrise on your Tuesday is at 5:57 a.m. ET.

Scattered thunderstorms transitioning to just scattered showers in the morning hours that will slow down the morning drive to both work and to school, so drive slowly out there on the wet roads. But the afternoon should be dry under a transition from mostly to partly cloudy skies along with both daytime high temperatures flirting with the middle 70s and light winds blowing from the northwest at 5 to 12 mph.

Join me with both Ellie Snodgrass and Brady Miller tomorrow morning on Dakota High School’s Latest Headlines and Morning Announcements at 7:15 a.m. for both a recap on both tonight’s showers and thunderstorms activity and all of the updated rainfall total amounts picked up by each neighborhood and for a look at the rest of this week’s weather forecast. I’ll, as always, have everything you need to know! Otherwise, enjoy the rest of your night, Metro Detroit, and sleep well!! Stay safe too!!
