Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

MIZ037>040-043>046-050>052-056>059-064>067-071>074-260815-
Mason-Lake-Osceola-Clare-Oceana-Newaygo-Mecosta-Isabella-Muskegon-
Montcalm-Gratiot-Ottawa-Kent-Ionia-Clinton-Allegan-Barry-Eaton-
Ingham-Van Buren-Kalamazoo-Calhoun-Jackson-
310 AM EST Sun Feb 25 2018

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Wind gusts as high as 50 mph are expected this morning, behind the
passage of an occluded front. This will cause some branches to
fall from some trees that may take out power lines and in turn
cause power outages. It will also cause travel problems of high
profile vehicles.

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 later Wednesday into
Thursday. This could bring 1 to 2 inches of rain and that would
aggravate on going flood issues. We will have to monitor this
closely. Some snow is possible Thursday night into Friday morning
and it may cause minor accumulations.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
