Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:36 PM EDT on May 30, 2015

... Flood Watch now in effect through Sunday afternoon...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of Southeast Michigan... including the following
areas... Genesee... Lapeer... Lenawee... Livingston... Macomb...
Monroe... Oakland... Sanilac... Shiawassee... St. Clair...
Washtenaw and Wayne.

* Through Sunday afternoon

* periods of heavy rain are expected through Sunday... as an
unusually moist airmass combines with a frontal boundary
stalling out over extreme Southern Lower Michigan. Rainfall
totals by Sunday evening are expected to range in the 1 to 3
inch range across the Flood Watch area... with locally higher
amounts possible.

* Although the past week or two over Southeast Michigan has been
relatively dry... rainfall totals in excess of 2 inches will
bring a threat of flooding... especially in the Detroit urban
area... as strong thunderstorms late this afternoon into early
this evening produce torrential downpours... potentially leading
to localized flash flooding.

* Parts of the Detroit Metro area have already received around 1
inch of rain from earlier activity.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

* Prepare... plan... and stay informed. Visit
