WHEN…Through Thursday evening.

IMPACTS…Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Flooding may occur in poor drainage and urban areas.


  • Rainfall between 1 and 2 inches is expected to fall during this period with times of moderate to heavy rain. Frozen ground, ice jams, and additional snow pack melt will help lead to increased runoff leading to minor to moderate river flooding and flooding in low lying areas.
