The CBS News Detroit NEXT Weather team has declared Wednesday, July 10 as a NEXT Weather Alert Day to account for the torrential rainfall and flood concerns. 

As Beryl made landfall, it weakened over land in Texas and Arkansas. Now, what is left of that massive storm is impacting Michigan.

An additional 0.5" to 1" of rain will be possible through Thursday morning.


Localized flooding will be the main concern with this system, along with the stronger winds, we have seen trees down in Ingham County. This will continue to be a concern as well as power outages. 

By Thursday afternoon, most of the rain will end, and what is left of Beryl will move out. Sunny skies and hot temperatures can be expected by the weekend, as high temperatures will be near 90 degrees.
