HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND RAPIDS MI
405 PM EDT THU APR 10 2014

...INCREASED RISK FOR FLOODING SUNDAY INTO NEXT WEEK...

SEVERAL ROUNDS OF RAIN ARE FORECASTED FOR SOUTHWEST LOWER MICHIGAN
BEGINNING SATURDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUING INTO MONDAY. SOME OF THIS
RAIN COULD BE HEAVY AT TIMES. THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR THE RAIN TO
REPEAT OVER THE SAME AREA. IF THIS OCCURS...STORM TOTAL RAINFALL
AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 2 INCHES WOULD BE POSSIBLE BY MONDAY AFTERNOON.

THE GROUND IS ALREADY SATURATED FROM THE RECENT SNOW MELT AND
RAINFALL. PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES ARE THAT IT WOULD TAKE 1.5 TO 2.5
INCHES OF RAIN TO INITIATE FLOODING OF SMALL STREAMS. SOME
LOCATIONS STILL HAVE SNOW ON THE GROUND. ALL RIVERS IN SOUTHWEST
MICHIGAN ARE AT RISK FOR POSSIBLE FLOODINIG.

MUSKEGON AND PERE MARQUETTE RIVER BASINS WILL EXPERIENCE ENHANCED
RUNOFF FROM THE ADDED SNOWMELT.

STREAMS AND RIVERS ARE ALREADY AT ABOVE NORMAL LEVELS. THUS THEY
ARE AT AND ELEVATED RISK FOR FLOODING.

STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER UPDATES ON THIS POTENTIAL FLOOD EVENT.
