The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a flood warning for the Grand River At Jackson affecting Jackson County from Thursday morning to Friday morning. A few light rain showers will be possible through Wednesday night. Heavier rain will move in on Thursday, and will change to snow. This additional precipitation will cause rivers to start rising again, after falling the past couple of days. These rises will not be nearly as bad as the last event. The following forecast is based on observed and forecast 48 hour precipitation.
A developing low pressure system will move through the Southern Great Lakes region tonight and Thursday bringing both rain and snow to the area.
