  Southeastern Jefferson County in central New York...
  Lewis County in central New York...
  Northeastern Oswego County in central New York...

* Until 600 AM EST Sunday.

* At 555 AM EST, very warm temperatures were leading to rapid
  snowmelt across the Tug Hill Plateau and western Adirondacks.
  Increasing runoff from snowmelt may result in minor flooding of
  small streams and poor drainage areas this morning. Snowmelt will
  increase further this afternoon, and be accompanied by a period of
  heavy rainfall. Around an inch of rain is expected across the
  region. The combination of further snowmelt and rain will likely
  result in more significant flooding of small streams and poor
  drainage areas later this afternoon and tonight.

* Some locations that may experience flooding include...
  Streams and rivers which drain the Tug Hill Plateau and the
  western Adirondacks, including areas in northern Oswego County,
  southern Jefferson County, and much of Lewis County. Small,
  rapidly responding streams will flood first, followed by larger
  streams and rivers.


Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
