Watch for Flooding, Dense Fog on Tuesday and Wednesday
The National Weather Service has issued warnings due to warming temperatures and as much as an inch of rain expected Tuesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning for a portion of southeast Michigan, including Dearborn.
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.
Additionally, more than an inch of rain is expected to fall Tuesday across the area.
In Dearborn, this is most likely to affect low-lying areas near the Rouge River—such as Ford Field Park and Telegraph Road underneath the Michigan Avenue overpass.
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.
