Flooding possible Friday, December 25

December 21, 2009

A large, wet storm system will bring heavy rain to the area starting Christmas Eve and extending beyond Christmas Day. Up to 1.50″ of rain is expected to fall on frozen ground, melting the snow and producing potentially excessive runoff.

This is a repeat scenario of last year’s late December storm, when 2.00″ of rain melted 2 inches of water frozen in the snowpack. However, last year’s snowpack was much greater than this year, and forecast rainfall amounts are currently less than last year.

Flooding of low-lying areas into the weekend is still possible.
