Following a much-needed break from the rain, it looks like we’re not out of the woods just yet.

The National Weather Service in Detroit issued a flood watch effective Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.

Additional heavy rainfall is again possible late this afternoon through Friday as another wave of low pressure moves across the region.

Rainfall amounts in excess of 1 inch will be possible, leading to renewed flooding potential of rural and urban areas.

According to the NWS, recent rainfall of 1 to 3 inches across the Detroit metro area south to the Ohio border has resulted in saturated ground, with runoff limited by area rivers and streams that are flooded.
