Flooding Not Expected Post-Snow Storm

While snow removal continues in the region and governments are weighing their options of where to put the snow that is being cleared from the roads, the National Weather Service is looking ahead to the melting.

Officials say they do not expect a fast warm-up and rain that would trigger big flooding problems in the region.  Temperatures are expected to climb slightly above freezing in the next few days, enough to provide some slow melting.

With some melting, residents can expect to see water levels to go up a bit in smaller tributaries and even some of the main stem rivers but, again, flooding is not anticipated at this point.

On another note, residents are encouraged to try to find the storm drains on their streets and clear those to allow for collection of runoff.  Clogged drains can result in some street-level water pooling.
