Ice jam concerns raised as rain, warmth and snow are forecast

At 8:32 a.m. Friday, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause flooding.

Another thing to keep in mind is that temperatures in New England will drop on Saturday afternoon after the cold front moves through.

There could be rapid rises on some rivers and streams that could lead to the potential of ice jams with water covered roads, especially in low lying areas.

Parts of the county are under a flood watch and Jeff Friedland with St. Clair County Emergency Management says homeowners reported the St. Clair River started to rise rapidly with a wind shift Thursday afternoon.

Winter is making a dramatic comeback less than 24 hours after we got a taste of spring in January. Not only are we dealing with rain but also a significant warm up.

There was another ice jam just downriver from this one.

The rain is expected to continue into the evening, with the possibility of another thunderstorm; some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall and additional areas of fog before midnight. "Will the river come over the banks?" The Hoosic River sometimes has ice jam problems as well.

"Rain will change to a brief period of freezing rain between 9 a.m. and noon", the weather service said.

Freidland said they have crews from two fire departments standing by and an evacuation plan in place in case it's needed.

A week after an ice blockage in the St. Clair River caused flooding throughout southeast St. Clair County, residents are being advised to take precautions again as another potential ice blockage threatens local homes, buildings and roadways.

Consequently, the National Weather Service has issued flood watches from eastern OH into northern and western Pennsylvania, New York state and New England.

Saturday's high temperature is likely to be 39 degrees, 20 degrees cooler than the high in Hartford on Friday.
