If heavy rains also fall, high water would be likely in many streams, creeks and rivers.

Rain, melting snow could cause high water

FORT WAYNE – A strong storm system moving into the region this weekend has the potential to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain, with some areas getting close to 4 inches.

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana said Thursday it is too soon to track the exact path of the storm but that northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio are likely to warm up enough to get significant runoff from melting snow. If heavy rains also fall, high water would be likely in many streams, creeks and rivers.

Current indications suggest the greatest potential for flooding will be in the Maumee and Wabash river basins, the weather service said.
