... FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON...
THE FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR
* EAST CENTRAL NEW YORK AND ADJACENT WESTERN NEW ENGLAND.
* FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON
* LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE FROM THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES REGION INTO SOUTHEAST CANADA TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY NIGHT WITH SOME MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL OCCURRING AHEAD OF A FRONTAL BOUNDARY. TEMPERATURES WILL RISE INTO THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S AHEAD THE FRONT ALLOWING SNOW MELT TO OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL RANGE FROM THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH TO AN INCH FROM THE CAPITAL REGION NORTH AND WEST... AND ONE TO TWO INCHES TO THE SOUTH AND EAST.
* THE RAINFALL WILL FALL ON FROZEN GROUND WHICH WILL BECOME RUNOFF AND MAY POTENTIALLY CAUSE STREET OR POOR DRAINAGE FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS. THE WARM TEMPERATURES COMBINED WITH THE RAINFALL MAY CAUSE ICE MOVEMENT AND BREAK UP FOR ICE JAM FLOODING ON SOME OF THE RIVERS AND STREAMS. ICE JAM FLOODING WOULD HAVE ITS GREATEST THREAT LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SUNDAY.
A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON CURRENT FORECASTS.
ICE JAMS CAN OCCUR SUDDENLY AND ARE HIGHLY UNSTABLE. WATER CAN BACKUP QUICKLY BEHIND AN ICE JAM AND FLOOD AN AREA IN A MATTER OF MINUTES. IN ADDITION... IF AN ICE JAM BREAKS A SUDDEN RELEASE OF WATER CAN FLOOD AREAS DOWNSTREAM.
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.
Do you have problems with ice jams in you're area? I do, and I hate them because they can flood neighborhoods, streets along rivers, disrupt traffic on bridges because the ice has to be cleared under them, all that. It's really a pain.
