Rain, snowmelt prompt area flood watch

Emergency officials want to remind residents that a flood watch is in effect from Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 12 p.m. until Thursday, Feb. 4, at 5 p.m.

Due to a combination of snowmelt and expected rainfall, small creek and stream flooding is possible Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night in the region, officials warned.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), scattered showers will begin after 4 a.m. on Wednesday. After 7 a.m., the rain could be heavy at times with areas of fog.

Wednesday’s high temperature could top 60, and the chance of precipitation is 100 percent, with rainfall amounts of an inch possible, the NWS forecast said. The chance of rain will decrease to 50 percent on Wednesday night, with amounts of a 10th to a quarter-inch possible.

Sunny skies are expected to return on Thursday for the remainder of the week with high temperatures in the 40s, the NWS said.
