Statement as of 3:36 PM EST on February 24, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 26, 2017

through Sunday evening...

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 7 PM EST this evening through Sunday evening

* warm temperatures tonight will cause snow melt and runoff and is
expected to cause slowly rising water levels on area rivers. 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. The combination of rain and snow melt is expected
to produce enhanced 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.

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.
