Rain, possible tornadoes, high winds expected during Columbia's afternoon drive time

Rain, possible tornadoes, high winds expected during Columbia's afternoon drive time

The high today should be near 62, the National Weather Service says. A low pressure system moving east through the Ohio Valley will bring steady rainfall through Friday. Showers and storms are expected that might cause flooding.

It's for this reason we are seeing flash flood watches, flood warnings and rising rivers across the state.

Conditions are developing which will promote heavy rain producing thunderstorms tonight and Friday morning over the region.

With a sunny sky, we reach the low 70s Saturday, followed by upper 70s Sunday. The SkyTrak13 Weather team is tracking another round of rain brining the potential for more flash flooding and higher river levels.

Just how much rain have we received?

The heavy rains have caused levees to fail or to be breached along the Missouri, Mississippi and OH rivers and their tributaries over the last few days.

By Friday afternoon, it's expected that some areas in metro Detroit could have 2-3 inches of rainfall.

A flood watch is in effect for most of southeast MI through Friday evening with 1-3 inches of rain expected, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.
