With rain expected Wednesday, it\u2019s possible the state will see some flooding and possibly ice jams \u2014 which\u00a0plagued the Kent area last January. \u201cThe Housatonic River \u2014 a lot of it is frozen pretty solid,\u201d said Bill Jacquemin, a meteorologist at Connecticut Weather Center in Danbury. He said the rain and warmer temperatures means it\u2019s likely the frozen ice will break and some areas might see \u201cice jams like last year.\u201d Jacquemin said residents near water should be alert and keep an eye on rise water levels that could lead to flooding as well. The National Weather Service has issued a\u00a0Flash Flood Watch\u00a0for all of Connecticut through Thursday afternoon. \u201cRain will move into southern New England tonight and continue through Thursday,\u201d the NWS said. \u201cRainfall may be heavy at times. By the time the rain tapers off, Southern New England will receive 1 to 2 inches of rain. The high rainfall rates may cause flash flooding as well as urban and poor drainage flooding.\u201d A snowstorm Saturday into Sunday brought snow, ice, freezing rain, sleet and wind to Connecticut. Following the storm were temperatures so dangerously cold, officials were warning residents to limit their time outside for fear of hypothermia or frostbite. The rain expected Wednesday into Thursday will fall on frozen snow and frozen ground \u2014 meaning most of it won\u2019t be absorbed into the ground. Instead, Jacquemin said, the rain will melt the ice and snow that was left from the weekend storm and several inches of water run off will spill into rivers and streams and make them rise. \u201cBy tomorrow (Wednesday) night with this rain and these temperatures, it\u2019s not going to thaw the ice out, it\u2019s just going to break the ice,\u201d Jacquemin said. \u201cWe don\u2019t often have to worry about that except in the spring.\u201d On Jan. 13, 2018, several Kent residents were evacuated from their homes because of flooding from the Housatonic River. Law enforcement had to shut down Route 7 between Route 341 and Bulls Bridge Road that same day. That stretch of roadway didn\u2019t reopen until five days later. The ice jam in 2018 took days to thaw, and was able to do so with consistent temperatures in the area of 40 degrees and a bit of precipitation.
