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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

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 through Kent County
today and tonight. The crest on the Kalamazoo River will be moving
from Kalamazoo County into 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.

Tonight an area of showers and isolated thunderstorms crosses the
area but precipitation amounts will not be enough to impact area
rivers and creeks. The greatest impact from any thunderstorm
would be brief heavy rainfall and cloud to ground lightning.
Also a brief period of freezing rain is possible north and east
of Grand Rapids this evening but impacts from this should be
minimal.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

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.

Sunday will be breezy with frequent wind gusts between 35 and 40
mph.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
