Watch for Flooding, Dense Fog Through Wednesday

The National Weather Service has issued warnings due to warming temperatures and heavy rain expected Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning for Rochester, Rochester Hills and the region.

The bulletin issued Monday afternoon indicated that warm temperatures on Tuesday will lead to a melting of 3 to 6 inches of packed snow. A frost depth of nearly 15 inches will prevent the water from being absorbed into the soil. 

In addition, more than an inch of rain is expected to fall Tuesday across the area. 

A dense fog advisory is also in place Monday evening through 7 a.m. Tuesday in the Detroit area. Fog is expected to limit visibility to less than a quarter mile at times. 

On Monday, Rochester Community Schools were among the hundreds of school districts closed because of hazardous weather conditions. Snow and rain on Sunday night caused icy road conditions in Rochester and Rochester Hills.

Beware of enormous potholes on Tienken between Adams and Rochester roads. They are especially bad eastbound just after Adams.

Janet, I know just what you mean. That area of Tienken is a mess and the "patching" only makes it worse. I sure hope that is part of the road projects this spring! I wonder how often our mayor drives it.
