Hazardous Weather Alert for Rochester-Rochester Hills

By Beth Dalbey (Patch Staff)

A hazardous weather outlook is in effect for Southeast Michigan – including the counties of Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Washtenaw and Livingston – through Thursday night, the National Weather Service said.

Precipitation chances are 80 percent today. Storms aren’t expected to be severe, but are capable of heavy downpours and wind gusts near 40 mph as the storm moves from west to east.

Southwest winds will bring warm, moist air into the region through early afternoon, but the springlike temperatures – mid-70s by afternoon – will be short-lived.

Rain chances are 60 percent on Good Friday, when the high will be near 53, but rain could turn to snow Friday night, with an accumulation of less than half an inch possible.

Saturday will be sunny, with a high of 47, and snow showers are possible again Saturday night and Easter morning. It’ll be cold on Easter Sunday, with a high near 44 under cloudy skies.

The possibility of snow showers is in the forecast through Monday.
