After worrying about snow and ice, area residents need to shift their concerns to rain, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which issued a flood advisory for the region until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
The NWS said rainfall has exceeded an inch in the region. Combining that precipitation with Monday night’s snow and ice melting is expected to cause minor flooding. Showers are predicted to subside in late afternoon with a high temperature near 60.
According to the NWS, a flood advisory means that river or stream flows are elevated or that ponding is occurring or is imminent.
