There is a flood watch for tonight and tomorrow. Rain and snowmelt combined with frozen soil means that little precipitation will be absorbed. Though the Huron River flooding is unlikely, I thought I'd share with you what different stages of river height would mean. I found this list on HAMweather and found it pretty interesting. To put it in perspective, the river is currently at 12.47', has an action stage of 13.5' and a flood stage of 15':
