FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - The National Weather Service is reporting minor flooding along the Monocacy (mah-NAH’-kah-see) River near Frederick due to recent heavy rain and relatively warm temperatures after last month’s blizzard.

The agency says the river reached 16.7 feet, or 1.7 feet above flood stage, Thursday afternoon at the Interstate 70 bridge. It’s forecast to fall below flood stage early Tuesday evening.

The weather service says the river is near a level that typically causes significant lowland flooding and road closures.

A flood warning is also in effect for the Potomac River at Point of Rocks and Edwards Ferry. Minor flooding is forecast in those areas overnight.
