We’ve had sub-zero temperatures. We’ve had near record, or in some cases, record snowfall. Now, the winter weather that just keeps coming is tossing another thing at us.
The National Weather Service is now predicting temperatures to hit 50-degrees or better today. That’s good news if you want to warm up… bad news though due to the heavy snow pack out there.
Flooding is now a concern.
The ground is still frozen solid, so there will be little if any absorption.
Although temperatures will return to more winter-like conditions by the weekend, the warm-up today will have river watchers throughout our area keeping close tabs on levels.
Ice dams on area waterways will likely bring concern, as will flooding on roads due to the melting snow which will have nowhere to go.
