The photos above are of the Kalamazoo River in back of my house – the trees off shore are supposed to be on shore. These were taken with my new HD 14 megapixel video camera which also takes snapshots. Here is the video I took showing the rapid flow rate of the river – Kalamazoo River 2/25.
It is fairly soggy down there in the woods, any low spots are filled with water. I found a dead deer, a spike horn so it was fairly young. Seems every where I walked there was deer spore and tracks. We see them come up to our fence line quite often peering at all of our bird feeders.
Very windy out there this morning. We have a wind advisory for most of the state until 2pm.
A rapidly deepening storm system, tracking through the Great Lakes this morning will sweep and occluded front through the area just before sunrise. That will sweep the rain out of the area but bring very strong winds with some gusts near 50 mph this morning into early this afternoon.
High pressure follows for tonight into Tuesday. That will bring well above normal temperatures to the area by Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 50s. Then the combination of stalled frontal system and low coming out of the Southern Plains will bring showers Wednesday but a steady rain, possibly heavy at times, Thursday. That may end as some light snow Thursday night or Friday morning. There may be enough rain with this to cause additional river rises.
The latest flood information can be found here at the NWS.
