After heavy snow, cold, flooding could be next

– While plows still work to clear snow off Indiana roads, officials are beginning to worry about possible flooding.

The National Weather Service is predicting rain with highs in the upper 30s on Friday. Weather service meteorologist Dan McCarthy tells The Indianapolis Star ( that with temperatures going from 14 below to nearly 40 above makes conditions ripe for flooding. That’s especially because the area was hit by 11 inches or more of snow on Sunday.

He says there likely will be street flooding because of melting snow. He also warns that homeowners who aren’t cautious about clearing their gutters could face problems. He also suggests homeowners to clear drainage areas as soon as the weather is warm enough.
