...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* All of central and northern Vermont as well as portions of
  northern New York.

* From late Monday night through Wednesday evening.

* Potentially record warmth combined with periods of rainfall
  will lead to rapid snow melt and ice jam breakups, which will
  increase the threat for minor to moderate flooding across the
  region Tuesday and Wednesday.

* Areas where ice jams remain in place from the mid-January thaw
  will be the most susceptible to 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.
