Flood warning issued for Clinton River


The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana has issued a Flood Warning for Small Streams for St. Joseph County as well as for Cass and Berrien Counties in MI and LaGrange County in Indiana until 3:15 a.m. Wednesday morning.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Several rounds of possibly heavy rain are expected this week as a cold front interacts with deep Gulf moisture.

Widespread rain will develop across the region today through Wednesday.

Flood stage is 9 feet, according to the weather service.

The Flood Warning continues for the St Joseph River at Burlington where minor flooding is expected. According to a spokesperson from the National Weather Service this is 2.5 feet above the starting flood stage level. The coolest high temperature we will see this week will be on Wednesday with temperatures still reaching the 40's.

The Syrian regime, however, has repeatedly violated the deal and has targeted residential areas in opposition-held zones like Idlib.

A Flood Watch means conditions are favorable for heavy rain which may lead to flooding of low lying areas.

All modes of flooding are likely during this time.

The rain is also causing potholes on the roads - specifically on southbound I-55 at 1st Ave where about a dozen vehicles were damaged earlier due to a large pothole.

The potholes on numerous roads may also be filled with water, which also requires motorists to slow down in some areas. Ongoing rain will begin to mix with sleet and snow after 4:00 AM, making the roads that much more treacherous. We've also had a lot of recent snowmelt and will see more, which adds to the amount of liquid making it into rivers and streams.
