WEATHER UPDATE: A Lot of Rain Moving In Over the Next 36 Hours

Posted: Updated:

Rain is moving in and plan on a lot more for the next 36 hours. Some areas could see more than 4" with a good chance of flooding.  A Flood Watch has been posted for the entire region.  I think low lying areas will see flooding due to the excessive rainfall. Creeks, rivers, streams are likely to reach very high levels with additional flooding likely. If you live in a spot that typically has water issues every spring, you should be prepared to move to higher ground as we are looking at conditions we haven't seen in quite a while.

Your forecast tonight is simple: Very wet with rain and thunderstorms with up to an inch of rain possible. Those of you from Gaylord northward could start off as a mix or snow but will switch over to rain during the night. Lows drop into the 30's to low 40's with winds picking up reaching up to 25 mph by morning.

There is no doubt tomorrow will be wet! Plan on occasional rain and thunderstorms with another inch of rain possible. Those seeing persistent T-storms could see couple inches of rain. You may see some rain-free periods but most of the day it will be raining. Winds stay strong at 10-25 mph. Thursday's temperatures have a huge range from the Soo in the upper 40's to Mount Pleasant hitting the upper 60's!
