Ford and Iroquois counties are on alert for possible flooding. Some areas could experience 2-4 inches of rain. The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from late Friday night until early Sunday morning.
The forecast calls for two to three inches of rain, with higher amounts possible in some areas. This rainfall, combined with the melting snow and saturated ground, will cause flooding due to excessive runoff.
You should monitor the weather conditions and be prepared to take action if there is flooding in your area. Precautions include securing outdoor items so they are not swept away and not driving over flooded roadways.
