We know it's the last thing area residents wanted to hear after the events of September, but once the dense fog - that wreaked havoc at airports last night - clears, we'll need to be on the look-out for flooding today. Warming temps headed into the 50s will serve to melt the piles of ice and snow that have accumulated over the last several weeks. In addition to that will be this new storm system that will dump one to three inches of rain to the area which is why we're under a Flash Flood Warning. Great, exactly what we need. City crews are already out and about at the ready for the flooding, so at least someone's prepared. We're also only a third of an inch away from our wettest year ever. It's good to have goals, we guess.
