Flood Warning

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the area around the Huron River near Milan.  The river is forecast to rise above flood stage by tonight.  Flooding begins in the lower portions of Franklin Flats and the Huron River Valley Campground causing secondary roads near the river to become impassable.

Flood Watch

A flood watch also continues for Erie, Huron, Lorain, Ottawa and Sandusky counties through tomorrow morning.

Localized flooding will be possible as areas of moderate to heavy rainfall move into the area today and tomorrow.  Flooding of larger rivers in the area will be possible Tuesday night though Wednesday.

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.  Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

A dense fog advisory will be in effect until 7 p.m. this evening.  The fog will likely be the worst close to the lakeshore, but visibilities across much of the area will lower to less than a quarter mile at times.

Motorists are advised to use caution and slow down, as objects on and near roadways will be seen only at close range.
