A moisture-rich, strong Central Plains-based system approaches the Western Great Lakes region, bringing moderate to heavy widespread rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds to Upper Michigan through Wednesday. Drive with caution due to water ponding, even localized minor flooding from excess rainfall -- totals ranging from half to 1.5″, with potential rainfall total more than 1.5″ for some areas.
