Watch for Flooding, Dense Fog on Tuesday and Wednesday

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning  for a portion of southeast Michigan, including Plymouth and Canton.

The bulletin issued Monday afternoon indicated that warm temperatures on Tuesday will lead to a melting of 3 to 6 inches of packed snow. A frost depth of nearly 15 inches will prevent the water from being absorbed into the soil. 

In addition, more than an inch of rain is expected to fall Tuesday across the area. 

A dense fog advisory also was put in place Monday evening through 7 a.m. Tuesday in the Detroit area. Fog is expected to limit visibility to less than a quarter mile at times.
