A strong, moisture-rich system brings widespread moderate and occasionally heavy rain over Upper Michigan Wednesday and throughout the evening. Soaking rain conditions can produce amounts from 0.25-1.50″ through Thursday early morning, resulting in isolated flash flooding, water ponding and also patchy fog conditions to reduce driving visibility below a mile.
