This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern New York, central
Vermont, northeast Vermont, northwest Vermont and southern Vermont.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Temperatures Thursday through Saturday will be 15 to 25 degrees
above normal...both during the day and into the night. This will
continue to support the breakup of river ice and increase the
potential for ice jams. Rivers with ice still in them are mainly over
northeast New York and the northern third of Vermont...generally
north of Route 2. We will see some light showers Thursday and
Friday...but amounts should not have much of an impact. The above
normal temperatures will contribute to snowmelt/runoff and we should
see noticeable rises Thursday and Friday...1 to 3 foot rises on
Thursday...but rivers are starting off low and should be able to
handle these initial rises. Main concern will likely be on Saturday
and into Saturday night when record/near record high temperatures
further increase snowmelt/runoff and widespread rain moves in with at
least a half to one inch of rain expected. Sharp rises will likely
occur during this period and greatest ice jam/river flooding
potential should be during this time period. Cooler and drier weather
is expected Sunday and Monday with a warming trend beginning


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
