* From 11 AM EST this morning through this afternoon

* Showers and thunderstorms producing heavy rainfall will move
  across the region today. Some locations may see an inch or more

  rain rates and saturated soils from recent snow melt may result
  in localized flash flooding...especially in urban areas and
  along small streams.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of central New York, including the following areas,
  Northern Oneida and Southern Oneida.

* Through Sunday evening

* A cold front will bring a quick shot of moderate to heavy
  rainfall today. Ongoing runoff from melting snow will combine
  with the anticipated rainfall to increase levels on river and
  streams around the county. Minor flooding will be possible
  from today through Sunday.

* Smaller streams and creeks will be most at risk for high flows
  and potential flooding, but there is also a chance for some
  flooding along larger creeks such as Fish Creek, Oneida Creek,
  Oriskany Creek, Sauquoit Creek and the Black River among
  others.

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.
