Flood Watch for tonight (1/7/17) and Sunday in Medford and Ashland

With snow on the ground, heavy rain is forecast to combine with melting snow, which may cause local flooding late Saturday night (1/7) through Sunday night, according to a Flood Watch posted by NWS.

Here at the southeastern, more elevated part of Ashland, snow continues to fall at this writing. But this is turning to freezing rain across the Rogue Valley, causing hazardous, slippery driving, and a new storm with lots of rain is expected to start tonight. Rain will continue through at least Tuesday.
