The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning for a portion of southeast Michigan, including Farmington and Farmington Hills.
The bulletin issued Monday afternoon indicated that warm temperatures on Tuesday will lead to a melting of 3 to 6 inches of packed snow. A frost depth of nearly 15 inches will prevent the water from being absorbed into the soil.
In addition, more than an inch of rain is expected to fall Tuesday across the area.
In Farmington Hills, the most likely area to be affected by flooding is on Halsted, between 13 and 14 Mile Roads. When that area floods, the city will block it off, city manager Steve Brock said during Monday's city council meeting.
To those who might approach the area before the gates are up, he added, "If it looks like you shouldn't go through it, don't go through it, because you'll get stuck."
A dense fog advisory is also in place Monday evening through 7 a.m. Tuesday in the Detroit area. Fog is expected to limit visibility to less than a quarter mile at times.
