...Periods of heavy rain still expected through tonight...

Steady rain has moved back into Upper Michigan this morning ahead
of a strengthening storm system approaching from the Central
Plains. Additional rainfall tonight into Sunday will range from
one to one and a half inches, with up to two inches possible over
the high terrain of Marquette County. Those living in low-lying or
flood prone urban locations could experience minor basement
flooding from locally heavy rainfall this weekend.

Although area rivers and streams have receded from mostly dry
weather over the past week, water levels are expected to rise
again today and tomorrow as runoff from the storm system reaches
into the river basins. An ensemble of precipitation forecasts
shows that minor flooding is possible on area rivers by Monday due
to runoff from this rain, but that rainfall would need to
significantly exceed what is currently forecast for more serious
river flooding to occur.

Anyone living near area waterways should nonetheless continue to
monitor water levels this weekend. Be sure to report any roadway
or structure flooding to local law enforcement, emergency
management and/or the NWS.
