Flood Advisory
National Weather Service Grand Rapids MI
620 AM EST Tue Feb 20 2018

...The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a flood
advisory for the following rivers in Southwest Lower Michigan...

  Muskegon River At Evart affecting Osceola County

.The Muskegon River near Evart is rising at a rate quicker
than expected. Overnight rainfall observations indicate around
three-quarters of an inch of rain have already fallen with additional
rain forecast through today. Though the rate of rise is quicker,
forecast crests remain close to previous projections. The only change
warranting the upgrade to an advisory is that the river will reach
bankfull sooner than previously expected, resulting in greater
confidence that the river will reach bankful. The following forecast
is based on observed and forecast 48 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 station for further
