A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire NewsTalk 1480 WHBC area through late tonight… On top of the rain that’s already fallen, AccuWeather expects another half-inch of rain today… Lowlying areas and streams and creeks are subject to flooding through tonight.

All this rain and snow we’ve had has been “great” for the Great Lakes: the water level in Lake Erie could reach a record high in late spring; that from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers… Lake Superior could also see higher-than-normal water levels… Some of the lakes were at record lows just six years ago.
