    20-foot waves possible on Great Lakes, flooding expected in Metro Detroit

    Waves as high as 20 feet could be possible Tuesday evening on the Great Lakes and flooding occur in parts of southeast Michigan as a multi-day storm system settles into the region, according the National Weather Service. 

    Residents of Metro Detroit could see 4-6½ inches of rainfall by late Thursday with a chance of a major thunderstorm Tuesday night, the weather service forecasted. 

    He said it was unlikely for the waves to remain that high by the time they reach shores, estimating they could wash up as high as 10-12 feet.

    This lingering end-of-summer storm cell is due to a low-pressure system moving into the region, bringing with it the forecasted precipitation as well as strong winds, Kacan said. 

    The National Weather Service has issued a lakeshore flood advisory from Wednesday morning to Thursday afternoon in Berrien County, and a beach hazard statement asking residents and visitors to remain out of the water and away from piers until Thursday evening.
