Flood Watch Monday Afternoon into Tuesday Evening
Written by Dan Fischer on January 21, 2018
A warm front will lift across the region on Monday, boosting
temperatures into the 40s. Temperatures will then remain in the
40s Monday night into Tuesday.
Area creeks and rivers still have ice in place. Rises in water
level can break up this ice, which can then become jammed where
there are constrictions in the river or creek channel, such as
curves or other restrictions. Localized flooding will be possible
in the vicinity of any ice jams. People living in areas that are
prone to ice jam flooding should take the time in advance to
prepare for the potential for flooding.
