...The flood advisory continues for the following rivers in Southwest
Lower Michigan...

  Grand River At Ionia affecting Ionia County
  Maple River At Maple Rapids affecting Clinton County

.Rivers continue to run high. The rivers have crested and will soon
begin a gradual decline. The rivers will remain out of their banks
for at least a few more days. Colder temperatures next week may lead
to ice redevelopment and thus we will have to watch for river level
fluctuations. The following forecast is based on observed and
forecast 24 hour precipitation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

A flood advisory means minor flooding is possible and rivers are
forecast to exceed bankfull.  If you are in the advisory area remain
alert to possible flooding... or the possibility of the advisory
being upgraded to a warning. Report observed flooding to local
emergency services or law enforcement and request they pass this
information on to the National Weather Service.

Stay tuned to further developments by listening to your local
radio... television... or NOAA Weather Radio for further information.
