...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON 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. In northeast
  Pennsylvania, Bradford and Susquehanna.

* From Tuesday afternoon through late Wednesday night

* Melting snow, and occasional light rain, through Tuesday will
  cause significant rises on rivers and tributaries in the region. 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, 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.
