... Flood Watch remains in effect from this evening through Sunday
The Flood Watch continues for
* portions of New York and southern Vermont, including the
following areas, in New York, Hamilton, Montgomery, northern
Fulton, northern Herkimer, northern Saratoga, northern Warren,
northern Washington, southeast Warren, southern Fulton,
southern Herkimer, and southern Washington. In southern
Vermont, Bennington, eastern Windham, and western Windham.
* From this evening through Sunday evening
* a strong cold front will track eastward across our region
Saturday with moderate to heavy rainfall, possibly exceeding one
inch in some areas with the heaviest rainfall across the
southern Adirondacks. Warm temperatures ahead of the cold front
will cause snow melt. The combination of rain and snow melt is
expected to produce runoff into area rivers, resulting in
possible minor flooding this weekend. Flooding is also possible
in poor drainage and low lying areas, especially where snow
blocks storm drains.
* Areas of the western Mohawk Valley, the upper Hudson, the
southern Adirondacks, Lake George Saratoga region and southern
Vermont are the most vulnerable to minor flooding.
