Flood watch issued

Flash flood warning issued for portions of Oahu, flash flood watch for all islands

Get ready for a week of spring-like temperatures, rain and t-storms.

In terms of total rainfall through Wednesday morning, it still appears that many of us have the potential to exceed two inches by Wednesday morning.

Fort Wayne and other portions of northern IN, southwest MI and northwest OH are under a weather service flood watch through tomorrow afternoon.

The river stage at 5:00 a.m. Tuesday morning was 5.1 feet and rising.

Flood waters could reach the Green Street area in Ottawa, according to National Weather Service forecasts.

Benton, Carroll, Washington and Madison counties are under a winter weather advisory in effect from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday, the agency's Tulsa office said.

The types of flooding common to our area are flash floods and river floods. "If you live in an urban area with a lot of concrete or a poor drainage area, flash flooding is definitely going to be a concern".

Frey also said the forecast calls for record-setting temperatures in the low-to-mid 60s. Rainfall amounts between 1 and 3 inches are expected with additional water added to runoff from the complete melting of the snowpack.

Heavy rain is causing flooding throughout the Chicago area.

While there has been some precipitation this winter, most of the rain has been so light that it has not brought much relief.

Around here, rivers and streams could be seeing some flooding as rains continue to fall. Our shot of getting more rain on Friday dips to 30%, but climbs back up to 90% for Saturday.
