1138 AM EST THU JAN 12 2017

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

  Looking Glass River Near Eagle affecting Clinton COUNTY
  Kalamazoo River Near New Richmond affecting Allegan COUNTY
  Grand River At Ionia affecting Ionia COUNTY
  Grand River At Lowell affecting Kent COUNTY
  Grand River At Grand Rapids affecting Kent COUNTY

.Snow should be the main form of precipitation through the weekend
and temperatures should be mostly below freezing. This should keep
the ice on area rivers steady. Unfortunately, we have high river
levels and additional minor flooding is possible. Ice in the
rivers will also impact river levels, and could cause levels to
rapidly fluctuate. The following forecast is based on observed and
forecast 48 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 station for further
information.
