Ice jam gives way as frozen chunks rush down Allegheny River

Ice jam gives way as frozen chunks rush down Allegheny River

- A flood warning is in effect until 8 a.m. Monday for southeast St. Clair County due to risky ice conditions on the St. Clair River.

Multiple roadways near the river have been impacted by flooding, the National Weather Service reported. The river is at bank-full and expected to rise further with ongoing rainfall.

On Saturday, the temperature will drop below freezing once again, and may cause the leftover rain to become freezing rain, and the wetness to flash freeze.

The second round of flooding in the area comes as a result of the potential ice blockage on the St. Clair River aided by strong northerly flow. As stated above, we are focusing on the flood potential for right now. Motorists are urged to exercise caution due the possibility for black ice.

If you've been enjoying the especially robust January thaw that sent area temperatures into the 50s on Thursday, here's fair warning: Arctic-like winter is waiting in the wings for a return engagement, with a hazardous mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow predicted for Saturday.

"This unusual change in temperature can be risky this time of year, as ice on roads and in waterways melt, and in order to ensure the safety of residents and travelers, I have directed state resources to be ready in advance for whatever Mother Nature brings our way", Governor Cuomo said. New rainfall amounts between three quarters and one inch are possible.

Snowmelt or rain on top of snow can occur, along with the breakup of a jam, and increase the level of flooding.

With this cold air in place late last week, Winter Storm Grayson was able to bring snow and ice to parts of the South, and then rapidly intensified off the East Coast.

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