...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON EDT TODAY THROUGH LATE
WEDNESDAY NIGHT...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central New York and northeast Pennsylvania,
  including the following areas, in central New York, Broome,
  Chenango, Delaware, Otsego, and Tioga Counties. In northeast
  Pennsylvania, Bradford and Susquehanna Counties.

* From noon EDT today through late Wednesday night

* Melting snow, and occasional rain through today, will combine to
  cause significant rises on rivers and tributaries in the region
  later today through Wednesday. Although uncertainty remains to
  exactly how much snow will melt, and how much rain will fall,
  there is a chance for minor river flooding in the Upper Delaware
  and North Branch Susquehanna basins. Smaller stream flooding is
  also possible in the heaviest snow covered areas.

* The locations which appear to be most vulnerable for minor
  flooding at this time are Walton on the West Branch Delaware;
  Sherburne on the Chenango; and Conklin, Vestal and Waverly on
  the Susquehanna. Impacts from minor flooding are typically
  confined within the natural flood plain of the river. Roads,
  homes and businesses within this region of a river are most at
  risk for minor flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. These forecasts can change based on current
conditions.

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.
