Flood Watch
Issued: 6:07 PM Apr. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service
...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM EDT THIS EVENING
THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* All of northern New York as well as central and northern
Vermont, including the Northeast Kingdom.

* From 6 PM EDT this evening through Sunday morning.

* Moderate to locally heavy rainfall will develop across northern
New York this afternoon and shift into northern Vermont
overnight.

* In addition, heavier showers will develop across central and
southern Vermont, which could produce localized higher rainfall
rates and the potential for isolated flash flooding tonight.
This rainfall, combined with snowmelt in higher elevations, will
lead to sharp rises on many local rivers and streams.

* Main stem rivers most at risk for flooding include the
Passumpsic, the Wells, the Missisquoi, the Lamoille, the
Winooski, the Ausable, and the Saranac Rivers. Sharp river rises
will begin this evening, with most rivers expected to crest on
Saturday. Additionally, Lake Champlain will continue to be near
flood stage through the weekend.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Persons with interests in flood prone areas along Lake Champlain
should take action to protect their property. The combination of
wind and wave action will enhance flood effects on windward
facing shores, and may cause additional damage to shoreline roads
and low lying areas.
