1100 PM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A few slick spots will be possible on roadways overnight due to
the light snow which fell Saturday evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Several rounds of heavy rain are forecasted early next week. Water
levels will likely be elevated ahead of this period of rain due to
the ongoing snow melt. There will likely still be some ice in the
rivers. All this will support an increased risk for
flooding next week.

A brief period of freezing rain may accompany the onset of the
precipitation over interior Lower Michigan Monday morning.

Thunderstorms will be possible Monday night. Severe weather is not
forecasted at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Light snow will exit southeast Wisconsin by early evening, with
less than an inch expected.

An active weather pattern is expected beginning later Sunday

combined with the melting snowpack and frozen ground, will cause
some rivers and streams to rise. Localized flooding is also
possible.
