Message summary: ...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 holland and muskegon saw the highest rain totals last week as well, which means the soils there are still quite wet, and additional heavy rain will have a harder time absorbing into the ground. Stay informed with the latest forecasts and information at www.weather.gov/grr and remain alert for ponded water this weekend, especially if driving at night.
