Winter weather advisory and flood watch issued for Dane County

Flood watch issued

While 12 hours might not seem like that big a deal, there is a significant amount of rain expected over a short amount of time.

There is the potential for flooding rains across Hunt County and much of North Texas today and Wednesday.

Rain is expected to keep things soggy through Wednesday, said Alex Manion, a meteorologist with the weather service in White Lake Township.

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

The weather service hydrologic outlook predicts the Clinton River could breach the 16-foot flood level in Clinton Township and Mount Clemens by Wednesday.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for portions of eastern Texas, southeastern Oklahoma, and southwestern Arkansas.

Frey also said the forecast calls for record-setting temperatures in the low-to-mid 60s.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for northern Indiana. The total rainfall through noon Wednesday could be over two inches.

The highest risk is centered over more of the eastern counties, but flooding is possible in Denton County even though the area has been dry.

Rain and fluctuating temperatures have led Evanston city officials to prepare for flooding. But the watch was dropped early Tuesday for Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Hancock counties.

"There will be a lull Thursday before it [the rain] ramps back up Friday and Saturday, and then dry out on Sunday", he said.

Flooding has already become a major problem across Mid-Michigan, and things will only get worse as the rain continues to fall tonight.
