Hydrologic Statement
National Weather Service Grand Rapids MI
115 PM EST Sun Jan 21 2018

...Water levels on area rivers are forecast to rise near or above
bankfull over the next several days...

For the following rivers or creeks:

Grand River at Comstock Park...
Grand River at Grand Rapids...
Grand River at Robinson Township...

Melting snow and rainfall amounts around 1 inch will cause rivers
to rise near or above bankfull. Flooding of low lying areas near
riverbanks is possible. A breakup of river ice may lead to ice
jam formation which can cause quick and unpredictable fluctuations
in river levels. The river level forecasts are based on forecast
precipitation over the next 48 hours.

Safety message...Caution is urged when walking near riverbanks.

Stay tuned to further developments by listening to your local
radio... television... or NOAA Weather Radio station for further
information. Information is available online at weather.gov/grr.
