Flood Warnings have been issue for the Tittabawassee and Saginaw Rivers.

Widespread 2 to 3 inches of rain has fallen from Sunday through 8am
this morning across the drainage basins. Another widespread 1 to 2 inches
is likely through Tuesday morning. This is generating large amount of
runoff that will push the rivers well over flood stage. Depending on
exactly how much falls today and tonight will determine if the
Tittabawassee reaches major level or stays in the moderate level.
Easterly flow all week will also cause higher levels in Saginaw Bay
that will hinder the flow out of the Saginaw River and help elevated
the stage.
