THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN...
EASTERN UPPER MICHIGAN...AND ADJACENT NEARSHORE WATERS OF LAKE
MICHIGAN...LAKE HURON AND LAKE SUPERIOR.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

RAIN WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND
INTENSITY THROUGH THIS EVENING. THERE IS A CHANCE THAT
THUNDERSTORMS WILL ACCOMPANY THE RAINFALL LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT...MAINLY ACROSS NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. NO SEVERE
WEATHER WILL OCCUR. THERE IS ALSO A CHANCE THAT THE RAINFALL MAY
BE HEAVY FOR A TIME...WITH LOCALIZED LOWLAND FLOODING...ESPECIALLY
NEAR AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

RIVER LEVELS REMAIN HIGH AND WILL INCREASE THIS WEEKEND DUE TO THE
EXPECTED RAINFALL AND ADDITIONAL SNOWMELT. THIS WILL CONTINUE THE
THREAT FOR LOWLAND AND RIVER FLOODING.

ANOTHER WAVE OF POTENTIALLY HEAVY PRECIPITATION WILL ARRIVE SUNDAY
NIGHT INTO MONDAY...AND PRIMARILY IMPACT NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN.
THIS WAVE OF PRECIPITATION STILL HAS THE ABILITY TO RESULT IN
ACCUMULATING WET SNOW. THE EXACT LOCATION AND AMOUNT OF WET SNOW
IS TOO DIFFICULT TO DISCERN AT THIS TIME...AS THE DETAILS REMAIN
UNCERTAIN. SMALL VARIATIONS IN THE STORM TRACK WILL HAVE A LARGE
INFLUENCE ON THE SNOW POTENTIAL.

TEMPERATURES WILL DROP WELL BELOW NORMAL FOR THE FIRST HALF OF
NEXT WEEK...WITH RECORD LOW TEMPERATURES POSSIBLE IN SOME AREAS.
