...MINOR FLOODING POTENTIAL TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY...

THE COMBINATION OF ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND THE RESULTING
SNOWMELT WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE RISES ON SMALLER RIVERS AND
STREAMS ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK AND VERMONT THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. THIS MAY LEAD TO LOCALIZED MINOR FIELD FLOODING...CULVERTS
FILLING UP AND SPILLING OUT ONTO ROADS...AND SMALLER RIVERS AND
STREAMS COMING OUT OF THEIR BANKS. THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF ICE IN
SOME RIVERS AND ICE JAMS COULD ALSO LEAD TO LOCALIZED MINOR
FLOODING. THE MINOR FLOODING DESCRIBED ABOVE HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE
ACROSS PARTS OF NORTHERN NEW YORK TODAY.

PERSONS ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK AND MUCH OF VERMONT SHOULD BE
AWARE THAT YOU MAY ENCOUNTER MINOR FLOODING THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT. BE CAUTIOUS OF FLOODED ROADWAYS...DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH
FLOODED ROADS...SEEK HIGHER GROUND IF FIELD FLOODING IMPACTS YOUR
PROPERTY...AND KNOW THAT ICE JAMS CAN QUICKLY OCCUR AND CAUSE
FLOODING...ESPECIALLY OVER NORTHERN NEW YORK AND FAR NORTHERN
VERMONT WHERE RIVER ICE IS STILL RATHER PREVALENT.
