The National Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WATCH and DENSE FOG ADVISORY for Lorain County.

FLOOD WATCH: The FLOOD WATCH is in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning.
Heavy rainfall is possible Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning as unseasonably warm and humid air moves north into the region. The greatest threat of heavy rainfall will occur Tuesday night as a strong area of low pressure moves northeast across the upper Ohio Valley. Two to three inches of rainfall is possible by Wednesday morning across Northern Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania.

Above normal precipitation for the past several weeks has resulted in wetter than normal topsoil conditions for this time of year. Localized flooding will be possible as areas of moderate to locally heavy rainfall move into the area on Tuesday night. Flooding of larger rivers in the area will be possible Tuesday night through Wednesday.

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

DENSE FOG ADVISORY: The DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect until 4 A.M. Tuesday morning.
Widespread dense fog with the visibility a quarter mile or less will continue through the evening at least. Dense Fog will develop this evening at locations that do not have it. Some people have reported visibility of just 300 feet at times. The Fog was being caused by a moist air mass and a warm front that was moving through the area this evening.

A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is issued by the National Weather Service when Dense Fog will substantially reduce visibilities, resulting in hazardous driving conditions in some areas. Motorists are advised to use caution and slow down, as objects on and near roadways will be seen only at close range.
