Michigan - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Allegan; Barry; Calhoun; Clinton; Eaton; Ingham; Ionia; Jackson; Kalamazoo; Kent; Ottawa; Van Buren

...Unseasonable river rises possible this week...
A slow-moving storm will bring 1 to 2 inches of rain to parts of
Lower Michigan tonight and Monday morning. River levels will be
climbing significantly later this week, but no significant flooding
is expected.
Recent rainstorms have left soils fairly saturated - especially
across the Grand River basin. Similarly, river levels are already a
bit higher than normal for this time of year. The heaviest rain from
this upcoming storm will fall in the Kalamazoo River basin (I-94
corridor), where 2 or more inches of rain is possible across a
fairly large area. Rain totals closer to 1 or 1.5 inches are likely
further north in the Grand River basin  (I-96 corridor). The rain
will be moving in tonight and continue through Monday morning before
starting to taper off.
The rivers in our area should be able to handle this amount of rain
without any significant problems, but several rivers will be near
bankfull after this. It`s worth noting that much higher rain totals
are expected just south of us (near the Indiana border), where 3 or
4 inches are possible. If those rain totals end up coming a bit
further north, we could be looking at several of our rivers making a
run at flood levels later this week.
This outlook means that elevated water levels and potential impacts
are possible, but not yet certain.  Anyone living or recreating
along the rivers in West Michigan should closely monitor the latest
forecasts, including the possibility of flood watches, warnings, and
advisories.
This statement will be updated on Monday, October 25th, or sooner if
conditions warrant.
The latest information is always available at www.weather.
