... Significant rises on area streams with localized flooding possible...
Runoff from yesterday and today/S snow melt has led to significant
rises on many area creeks and smaller streams. Many drainage
ditches and lower-lying areas have been reported to have standing
water or water flowing through them. These rises on area streams
have also led to ice jams and ice action in some locations... making
for the possibility of water flowing out of their banks.
The runoff from today/S snow melt will linger into the overnight.
Although most streams are expected to generally remain within
their banks... flooding of lower-lying areas may occur. Ongoing or
newly formed ice jams may also result in locally higher river and
Be on the lookout for flooding of lower-lying areas near streams
this evening and into the overnight. Be especially careful once it
becomes dark as it becomes more difficult to see the flooded areas.
Remember not to drive into flooded areas.
