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.


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.
