We will have what the National Weather Service describes as a "rapid snow melt" Thursday, as the temperature reaches 50 and heavy rain falls.

Richland County Emergency Management Director Mike Bailey says there is a threat of flooding, especially Thursday night, as the Weather Service expects 90 percent of the snow to melt.

Bailey says that would be the equivalent of four-inches of rain, on top of the rain itself. So, the flood-prone Clear Fork and Black Fork rivers are being closely monitored with cameras that send lives pictures to the EMA office.

If you live in a low-lying area, have a plan for a place to go if you must leave your home. Also, never drive through a flooded road. If necessary, the Red Cross is likely to open shelters.
