The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a

* Flood Watch for all of eastern New York excluding the western
  Adirondacks, for northwestern Connecticut, western
  Massachusetts, and southern Vermont.

* From Tuesday morning through Wednesday morning

* Rainfall amounts of three quarters of an inch to an inch and a
  quarter along with snowmelt on Tuesday may be enough to
  dislodge river ice which would then move downstream and
  potentially jam at preferred locations. Areas in the river
  channels which are most prone to ice jam flooding include
  obstructions in the channel such as islands, locks, bridge piers
  and docks; changes in the channel such as narrowing of the
  channel, bends, gorges and intact ice cover; change in channel
  depth from deep water to shallow water; and merger of river


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.
