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

  Maple River At Maple Rapids affecting Clinton County

.Snow showers are expected for Southwest Lower Michigan this week.
Snow may periodically become heavy in counties bordering the lakshore
with lighter snowfall farther inland. Colder temperatures will aid in
keeping runoff to a minimum. However, overnight temperatures in the
teens and single digits are likely to result in ice build up on
aroverea rivers over the next several days. Ice could lead to river
fluctuations as build up occurs. Being that rivers are already
running high, fluctuations may send some rivers over their banks.
The following forecast is based on observed and forecast 48 hour


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.
