Hazardous Weather Outlook

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
National Weather Service Grand Rapids MI
346 AM EST Thu Feb 22 2018

MIZ037>040-043>046-050>052-056>059-064>067-071>074-230900-

Montcalm-Gratiot-Ottawa-Kent-Ionia-Clinton-Allegan-Barry-Eaton-
Ingham-Van Buren-Kalamazoo-Calhoun-Jackson-
346 AM EST Thu Feb 22 2018

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Flooding continues to be a significant issue with many roads (as
of midnight) still closed in most of the counties in this area.
Water levels continue to recede slowly but remain high enough yet
to be a significant travel problem.

Freezing rain, sleet are expected late tonight but for the most
part this is more likely near and north of Route 10. Precipitation
amounts are expected to be light, still any ice could create
travel issues.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

River levels are expected to remain high into the weekend as the
precipitation routes it way down area rivers.

The area of freezing rain will quickly lift out of the area by mid
morning Friday. Ice accumulations will be mostly less than a tenth
of an inch. This may impact the morning commute over our northern
areas.

Another system will move through the area Saturday night into
Sunday morning. That will bring mostly rain but we could see
freezing rain north and east of Grand Rapids early Sunday morning.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
