for the following rivers in Southwest Lower Michigan...

  Grand River At Ionia affecting Ionia County

...The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a flood 
advisory for the following rivers in Southwest Lower Michigan...

  Grand River At Eaton Rapids affecting Eaton County
  Grand River At Portland affecting Ionia County
  Red Cedar River Above Williamston affecting Ingham County
  Kalamazoo River At Comstock affecting Kalamazoo County
  Kalamazoo River Near New Richmond affecting Allegan County
  White River Above Whitehall affecting Muskegon County
  Muskegon River Near Croton affecting Newaygo County

  Chippewa River Below Mt Pleasant affecting Isabella County

.Widespread rainfall is expected Monday morning through Wednesday
morning. Rain amounts between 1 and 3 inches are expected across all
of Southern Michigan, with locally higher amounts possible. Snow
melt will also continue. This will cause rises on rivers, creeks, and
streams, and allow water to spill into low-lying areas along rivers. 

In addition, rainfall and warmer temperatures will increase the
likelihood for river ice to break up and travel down stream. Large
pieces of ice floating in the river may later pile up as they travel
downstream, particularly near bends in rivers. This could create ice
jams and increase the threat for flooding immediately upstream.

The following forecasts are based on observed and forecast 48 hour 
precipitation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety message...Caution is urged when walking near riverbanks.

A flood advisory means minor flooding is possible and rivers are 
forecast to exceed bankfull.  If you are in the advisory area remain 
alert to possible flooding...or the possibility of the advisory being
upgraded to a warning.  Report observed flooding to local emergency 
services or law enforcement and request they pass this information on
to the National Weather Service.

Stay tuned to further developments by listening to your local 
radio... television... or NOAA Weather Radio station for further 
information.
