Thanks to a slow-moving storm system forming just east of the Rockies, Detroit looks to be in store for a week of wet weather.

After an extended period of cooler weather, the temperature will increase into the 70s on Tuesday, but the wet and cloudy weather will remain. Tuesday will also see a chance for a thunderstorm.

Wednesday will remain in the 70s with mostly cloudy skies and more showers possible in the early evening.

Cloudy skies continue through the end of the week, with temperatures in the lows 60s and high 50s.

"I really think that at least a chance of showers lingers into at least Saturday," said Accuweather.com Meteorologist Richard Jaworski.

This Day In Weather History

New York/MA (1819)
Two simultaneous cloudbursts, 45 miles apart; A bucket survey claimed 15" of rain fell at Catskill, NY. Highways were completely washed out. One washout started west of the old Albany Post Road and spread eastward across the road until it was 190 feet wide and 80 feet deep in a distance of 160 paces. At Westfield Valley, "suddenly the windows of heaven seemed to have been opened and the rain fell in such torrents that in less than 5 hours, Westfield River rose at least 20 feet above its usual height at low water. The river overflowed its banks with great rapidity and violence, sweeping away every bridge, fence and building which opposed its current."

Pittsburgh, PA (1872)
Cloudburst of 30 minutes followed by a flash flood. Over 133 people drowned on the north side of Butcher Run and Wood's Run.
