More flooding along St. Clair River threatens homes, roads

Forecast: Heavy Rain And Rapid Melting May Lead To Flooding

In addition, driving conditions after the rain stops are expected to be hard, as temperatures are expected to drop once again come late Saturday/earlySunday, resulting in flooded streets becoming encrusted with heavy patches of ice.

Neighbors also risk getting ice locked as the temperatures plummet and the water rises. Freezing rain, which will transition into snow, is expected through the weekend, causing hazardous driving conditions, especially on untreated surfaces with isolated to scattered power outages possible.

Warren County Emergency Services Director Brian LaFlure said his staff has been working with the National Weather Service in recent days to watch the Hudson for problem spots, and there appeared to be potential ice jams around the usual problem spots near The Glen and River Road in Chester.

Now Friday night, once the cold front moves in, temperatures drop dramatically, creating a flash freeze.

"If you are heading out tomorrow morning, please be cautious of black ice as temperatures will be dropping rapidly", the department said on Twitter. Not only are we dealing with rain but also a significant warm up. One to one and a half inches of rain has already fallen. Heavy rain and melting snow means ice jams are unsually likely in CT. Then precipitation is going to change from rain to sleet and freezing rain.

Ice jams typically occur when temperatures above freezing cause ice to begin to thaw into big chunks.
