To paraphrase the Michigan state motto: if you seek a warm, dry and pleasant peninsula, just look about you.

At least for today.

According to the National Weather Service, Tuesday will be a great day weatherwise in southeastern Michigan, with a high of about 80 and a nighttime low of about 60.

“The only note of caution is we do have a flood warning for the lower Rouge River in Inkster,” meteorologist Sara Schultz said. “The river crested earlier in a minor stage of flooding but the river is now decreasing.”

The rain that has drenched the metro area for the past several days is expected to return on Wednesday, along with slightly falling temperatures.

“We’ll see rain showers, and possibly some thunderstorms, moving in on Wednesday,” Schultz said. “There is a slight chance of heavy rains in the morning with an increasing chance as we merge into the afternoon and again late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning.”

The high for Wednesday will be about 74 with a nighttime low around 60.

As of Tuesday, the metro area has received 3.09 inches of rain for the month of June. According to the NWS, the norm for June is 3.52 inches.
