...HEAVY RAINS ACROSS LEWIS COUNTY AND THE TUG HILL PLATEAU...

A DEEP PLUME OF MOISTURE EXTENDING NORTH FROM NEW JERSEY AND
NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA TODAY HAS BEEN INTERACTING WITH A
STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY TO PRODUCE WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY
RAIN OVER PARTS OF CENTRAL NEW YORK. THROUGH LATE THIS
AFTERNOON...THE HEAVIEST AND STEADIEST OF THIS RAIN HAS FALLEN TO
THE SOUTH AND EAST OF SYRACUSE...BUT DURING THE COURSE OF THIS
EVENING...THE SOAKING RAIN WILL ADVANCE TO THE EASTERN LAKE
ONTARIO REGION.

THE HEAVIEST RAIN THROUGH MIDNIGHT WILL LIKELY FALL FROM THE TUG
HILL PLATEAU EASTWARD ACROSS LEWIS COUNTY WHERE AMOUNTS IN EXCESS
OF AN INCH WILL BE POSSIBLE. BECAUSE OF THE RELATIVELY DRY
CONDITIONS LEADING UP TO THIS EVENT THOUGH...THE IMPACT OF THE
HEAVY RAIN IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE SIGNIFICANT. THERE MAY BE SOME
FLOODED AGRICULTURAL AREAS...AND IN AREAS WHERE STORM DRAINS ARE
BLOCKED BY LEAVES AND DEBRIS...THERE COULD BE SOME POOR DRAINAGE
FLOODING.

WIDESPREAD RAINS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST ACROSS THE EASTERN LAKE
ONTARIO REGION TONIGHT THROUGH MUCH OF THURSDAY. RAINFALL AMOUNTS
DURING THE 24 HOUR PERIOD COULD EXCEED AN INCH AND A HALF...AGAIN
MAINLY FROM THE TUG HILL PLATEAU EASTWARD ACROSS LEWIS COUNTY.
