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

  Grand River At Robinson Township affecting Ottawa 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... Motorists should not attempt to drive around
barricades or drive cars through flooded areas.

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