A frontal boundary that stalled south of Michigan allowed repeated rounds of rainfall to move across the region from May 11 to early May 13, 2018. The heaviest axis of rain fell across the I-696 corridor with locations seeing anywhere between 1.5" - 3.5" of accumulation. Impacts included several road closures across Oakland County down into Wayne County due to localized flooding. Additionally, the Rouge River in Southfield/Detroit and Clinton River near Clinton Township quickly reached minor flood stage, impacting communities and roadways along the rivers.
