If you have outdoor plans this weekend, keep an eye on the sky. A slow moving Low pressure system approaching from the west will bring rain to the area starting Friday evening. Expect periods of heavy rain, possibly severe, accompanied by gusty winds.
At this hour, gusty winds out of the southeast have prompted a Lakeshore Flood Advisory for Wayne and Monroe counties. The southeast wind helps to lift the water onshore, resulting in higher waves along shore bringing the potential for flooding.
Swimming along those shorelines could be dangerous. The Lakeshore Flood Advisory expires at 4am Saturday.
The system bringing our rain is a slow mover. This is why the weekend carries the threat of rain. Saturday appears to be the heaviest rain day, with scattered showers early and heavier rain expected after noon.
Low pressure moves a little farther south of Michigan Sunday. That means we will start the day rainy, with only scattered showers afternoon. Highs both weekend days will settle around 79 with the overnight lows near 67.
Depending on the movement of the Low pressure system, clouds and the potential for a few showers linger into the new week. So far, Wednesday looks to be the warmest and sunniest day with a high of 86.
