We are still a month away from winter but the NOAA winter outlook is proving to be correct in forecasting a wetter than average period for those living across the Great Lakes, especially for us living in Michigan.

As of November 13, rainfall totals in Detroit are above average and we are only half way through the month.

Detroit Metro Airport has accumulated 2.43 inches of rain since November 1, which is 1.34 inches above the normal average.

We are expected to get a lot more rain this week with two different systems that will impact the state, a cold front on Wednesday, and then a stronger cold front Friday night into Saturday morning which could trigger the chance of a rumble of thunder and heavy downpours.

Behind this front, temperatures will take a plunge once again, and by Sunday we are looking for highs in the mid 30s and a chance of snow.
