...Heavy rain and threat for localized flooding this weekend...

Several rounds of heavy rain this weekend are likely to affect
most of Lower Michigan, with the heaviest round of rain likely
moving in Sunday evening. The main threat is for short-duration
flooding in areas of poor drainage/low spots, as well as on some
of the smallest streams. The larger rivers will see significant
rises by early next week, but none are expected to cause flooding.

At this time it looks like the heaviest rain will fall along and
west of US-131, but all locations will likely see at least one
round of significant rain. Areas along the lakeshore between

Stay informed with the latest forecasts and information at and remain alert for ponded water this
weekend, especially if driving at night.
