Good morning, West Michigan! Finally, the deluge is ending. This morning, we'll continue to see rain, mixed at times with sleet and snow as colder air moves in. By mid-morning, the showers should be moving out and we'll see some sunshine this afternoon. Temperatures will be much cooler than yesterday's near-record levels. Highs will be in the upper 30s.
With temperatures flirting with freezing early this morning, keep in mind that there may be some slick spots on the roads. It shouldn't be a widespread problem, but particularly on lesser-traveled roads, it would be a good thing to keep in mind and a good reason to take it easy.
Rainfall totals from the two-day event which began Monday are impressive! Paw Paw and Sturgis had reports of 4" with many other locations between 3 and 4". Combined with a lot of melting snow -- remember, we had 8-15" of snow a week and a half ago -- and a frozen surface, the moisture is going to make its way to our major rivers over the next few days, leading to flooding concerns. That's why the National Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WARNING for just about all of West Michigan (Branch County is excepted).
Don't leave home for work or school this morning without getting a LIVE radar and forecast update from Meteorologist Jeff Porter. He has reports every ten minutes on Newschannel 3, from 4:30 to 9:00.
