Hazardous Weather Outlook

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
National Weather Service Grand Rapids MI
137 AM EST Sun Feb 25 2018

MIZ037>040-043>046-050>052-056>059-064>067-071>074-260645-
Mason-Lake-Osceola-Clare-Oceana-Newaygo-Mecosta-Isabella-Muskegon-
Montcalm-Gratiot-Ottawa-Kent-Ionia-Clinton-Allegan-Barry-Eaton-
Ingham-Van Buren-Kalamazoo-Calhoun-Jackson-
137 AM EST Sun Feb 25 2018

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of southwest Lower
Michigan.

.DAY ONE...Today

Gusty winds behind a cold front will gust to between 40 and 50 mph
this morning into early this afternoon. This will cause some small
to large branches to fall from some trees that may take out power
lines and in turn cause power outages.

Flooding continues to be a significant issue along creeks and
rivers. Several roads remain closed in most of the counties in our
area. The crest on the Grand River was moving out of Kent County
into Ottawa County today and tonight. The crest on the Kalamazoo
River will be moving through Allegan County today. Impacts to
residences, businesses and commercial buildings near the mainstem
rivers will continue today and tonight. Most of the small creeks
and streams in this area also high, but water levels on them are
now falling. Even so there are impacts there too.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

The crest on area rivers will move toward lake Michigan early next
week. As a result many of the road closers and other flooding
issues may continue through at least Monday or Tuesday. Another
very wet storm system is possible in the Wednesday to Thursday
time frame. This could bring 1 to 2 inches of rain and that would
aggravate on going flood issues. We will have to monitor this
closely. No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
