A flood watch has been issued for Wayne County through Monday evening.

The National Weather Service says several rounds of showers and thunderstorms will bring moderate to heavy rainfall from Sunday night through Monday.

Rainfall totals of around 2 inches will be possible for southeast Michigan with locally amounts of around 4 inches possible.

This may lead to localized flooding, especially given the wet soil from recent heavy rain.

Flooding of roads and streets may occur, especially in urban and other prone areas.

Small creeks and rivers will rise considerably with some possibly overflowing their banks.
