Flood watch, dense fog advisory for Naperville area

With temperatures rising and snow melting, the National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for the Naperville area through noon on Monday. The watch covers a number of counties, including DuPage and Will.

Melting ice and snow, along with ongoing rain, are all contributors to rising rivers and creeks. This could inundate drainage areas, with storm drains and ditches potentially becoming clogged with pieces of ice and snow, causing localized flooding.

Naperville and the surrounding area is also under a dense fog advisory until 4 p.m. on Friday. Travel could be impacted, with visibility potentially dropping to a quarter mile or less. Forecasters say more dense fog could return tonight. Keep up with the current forecast on the NCTV17 weather webpage.
