The Flood Watch continues for

* All of central and northern Vermont as well as portions of
  northern New York, including the Saint Lawrence River Valley.

* Through this evening

* Record warmth will continue to cause rapid snow melt and river
  ice breakup, which will increase the threat for minor to
  moderate flooding across the region through Wednesday.

* Areas where ice jams remain in place from the mid-January thaw
  will be the most susceptible to flooding. Some of these rivers
  include but are not limited to the following: the Little
  Salmon, St Regis, Saranac, Great Chazy, Ausable, Lamoille,
  Missisquoi, and Winooski.


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.
