Overview

An area of low pressure stalled across the Great Lakes region and brought a prolonged period of steady rainfall from Sunday, May 17th through Monday, May 18th. Despite a lack of extraordinarily high rainfall rates, simple persistence of steady rain resulted in significant rainfall totals, along with significant rises on area rivers (historic for some).

In addition, gusty east winds accompanied this system, which brought increased lakeshore flooding concerns to portions of northeast lower Michigan coastline.
