The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central Upper Michigan and western Upper Michigan,
including the following areas, in central Upper Michigan,
Baraga, Iron, and Marquette. In western Upper Michigan,
Gogebic, Keweenaw, Northern Houghton, Ontonagon, and Southern
Houghton.

* Moderate to possibly heavy rainfall through tonight combined
with continued snowmelt runoff could cause flooding of area
streams and rivers into Tuesday across the northwest half of
Upper Michigan.

* With rivers already running high and soils saturated, any
rainfall and snowmelt will only worsen ongoing flooding,
especially in the Lake Superior snowbelts where some areas
still have over a foot of snow on the ground.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
