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

  Maple River At Maple Rapids affecting Clinton County

A large portion of Southwest Lower Michigan will only see light snow
and flurries in episodes through the next several days. Heavier
snowfall amounts should remain localized within 30 miles or so
from the Lake Michigan shoreline. Little or minor accumulation may
result further inland. Colder temperatures will prevent snowfall
from becoming runoff in the near future. Primary concerns going
forward are more directly related to fluctuations resulting from any
ice build up through the weekend. The situation will continue to be
monitored through the week. The following forecast is based on
observed and forecast 24 hour precipitation.


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.
