I am generally up before daybreak just when the birds burst into song greeting a new day. All the birds are back from their winter break down south. I have seen hummingbirds and Orioles at the feeders. I have also noticed a lot of bumblebees this spring.
We have a flood watch for most of the state which lasts through 11 am tomorrow. Most of the area could see up to three inches of rain from this system which is just starting to move in this morning. There is a chance of a storm later this afternoon.
Low pressure will bring heavy rain to Lower Michigan today and tonight. The rain will begin to taper off on Monday but showers will continue into Tuesday. Some flooding along rivers and streams is expected.
Southern Michigan mainly from GR to the south is in the marginal outlook for severe weather
