GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Heavy rain over the weekend and Monday led to saturated soil, ponding of water and high-running creeks, streams and rivers. Mostly lowland flooding and low-lying farm field flooding has been reported so far.
The storm system bringing us rain and storms Monday night won’t pivot out of the Great Lakes until late Monday night. By then, a few more inches of rain is possible.
Because of the potential for heavy rain in a short time on already saturated soil, the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for most areas south of Grand Rapids. The flooding threat will diminish rapidly before sunrise Tuesday.
