It is nice to have the sun making an appearance plus the winds yesterday helping to dry things out. Rivers have crested or are cresting at levels not seen in years, or decades in some cases. Moderate to major flooding is occurring in several locations, even in locations which have already crested.
The Kalamazoo/Grand river crests will move through Allegan/Ottawa Counties over the next couple days, where minor to moderate flooding will occur near the rivers. The feature image is one I took of the Kalamazoo River in back of my house. The trees and brush in the background are usually on land. I have a video I took of the river on yesterdays post.
High pressure will drift through the Great Lakes region today and tonight bringing dry weather and mainly clear skies. Highs today will reach the mid 40s to around 50 degrees. Southerly winds kicking in tonight will keep lows in most areas near or slightly above freezing.
Highs on Tuesday will be well above normal (roughly 20 degrees above normals) with highs pushing well into the 50s. Low clouds and small chances for rain showers are expected on Wednesday. Highs will remain above normal on Wednesday in the upper 40s to low 50s. A widespread rain is expected on Thursday with the potential for some heavier rain across Southwest Lower Michigan.
Bittersweet Ski Resort (image to the left) has the groomers out this morning – they are claiming a 23″ base and will be opened today. It is strange seeing snow up there when it is so wet here in the valley.
