Weather could lead to slow commute

Thursday morning's commute is being hampered by the weather.

The rain and freezing rain is causing slick roads, and authorities are asking motorists to go slow and take their time.

The area remains under a flood watch until 3 p.m. The combination of melting snow and new rainfall could result in an elevated risk of flooding, according to the National Weather Service. High-standing water and flooding are possible in poor drainage and flood-prone low-lying areas, and significant rises and localized flooding also is possible on area streams, creeks and rivers.

After the rain, high wind is expected, with a high wind warning in effect from 5 to 11 p.m. Thursday. Gusts of up to 60 mph could occur in early to mid-evening hours, resulting in possible tree damage and the tossing of lightweight unsecured objects and make travel dangerous.
