The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a

* A Flood Watch for northern New York and all of central and
  northern Vermont.

* From Friday evening through Sunday evening.

* Record warm temperatures and a period of moderate to briefly
  heavy rainfall is expected on Saturday.

* Minor to locally moderate flooding is possible due to
  combination of snow melt and rainfall amounts between a half and
  one inch.

* The greatest flood threat will occur concurrent with and after
  the heaviest rainfall, which is expected Saturday afternoon into
  Saturday night. The flood threat will be enhanced on rivers with
  potential ice breakup, which includes the basins of far
  northeastern New York and the northern third of Vermont...generally
  north of U.S. Route 2.

* Localized ice jam flooding could begin sooner with ongoing
  snowmelt and warm temperatures Thursday into Friday.


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.
