The current weather forecast calls for a significant storm system to bring warmer than normal temperatures and significant rainfall in the lower elevations (below 600 feet) late Tuesday night through Thursday. Recent valley snow accumulations melting and freezing the past few days coupled with frozen soils underneath could cause low lying areas to flood and/or pond water. Sheet flooding can occur as the rainfall melts the snow and flows atop the terrain. Care should be taken to stay away from these areas as it may cause basements, streets, stormdrains, culverts, lawns, under bridges and other low lying areas to flood. Caution should be taken traveling as roads may be flooded or have water flowing over them. Local creeks and ditches may flood as well. This tropical moisture system should affect and cause snow to melt at elevations under 6000 feet. Strong winds may accompany this system so additional snow melting can occur or cause snow to drift.
