7-day stretch of rain ending in metro Detroit, Here comes the sun (and I say, it's all right)

(WXYZ) - Metro Detroit has seen rain for 7 consecutive days, but that streak should come an end Wednesday.

A stalled out frontal boundary has brought us several rounds of rain since late last week, but a ridge of high pressure will soon take over, and suppress the front to our south.  That means the sun should return, and warm us back up into the middle and upper 70s.

DTW has seen nearly 5 1/2 inches of rain in May. The record for the month is 8.46" (2004), and we still have 16 days to get there.

Our 2018 rain so far is up to 17.44", nearly 7" above average through May 15th.
