The Doppler Radar shows a persistent region of moderate to heavy rainfall across the area. They report isolated, non-severe thunderstorms today, mainly south of the I-69 corridor, that will bring heavy rainfall from southeast to northwest at approximately 15 miles per hour. This can lead to areas of flash flooding across metro Detroit.

By 10 a.m., three inches of rain fell in Southeastern Michigan. At this time, NWS predicts an additional two inches of rain may fall in Southeastern Michigan by 2 p.m. "Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small creeks and streams...urban areas...highways...streets.. and underpasses as well as other drainage areas of low lying spots."
