Since the ground is frozen, rain will run off into area rivers, which are partially ice covered. The warm air followed by quick rises in stream flow could create ice jam flooding.

Arctic air invades our area starting Thursday. As it moves in, Wednesday night into Thursday morning could be icy, with freezing rain, sleet & ice accumulation as the cold air rushes in.  During the day Thursday we have snow chances. Models are not in agreement on the storm track. It’s still too soon.
