Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 9:53 PM EDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect until 6 am EDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of central Michigan, south central
Michigan, southwest Michigan, and west central Michigan,
including the following areas, in central Michigan, Clare,
Gratiot, Isabella, Mecosta, Montcalm, and Osceola. In south
central Michigan, Clinton, Eaton, Ingham, and Ionia. In
southwest Michigan, Allegan, Barry, Kent, and Ottawa. In west
central Michigan, Lake, Mason, Muskegon, Newaygo, and Oceana.

* Until 6 am EDT Friday

* several rounds of thunderstorms are forecasted tonight. Rainfall
rates will top an inch per hour in the strongest storms. Local
storm total rainfall amounts could exceed 3 inches which would
be enough to trigger flooding. The ground is already saturated
in some areas so runoff could be efficient.

* Urban and poor drainage flooding could occur. Flooding of small
streams and creeks will be possible where the thunderstorms
repeat over the same area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
