The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of central New York, including the
  following areas, Northern Oneida and Southern Oneida.

* From Saturday morning through Sunday evening

* A cold front will bring a quick shot of moderate to heavy
  rainfall on Saturday afternoon. This rainfall combined with
  significant snow melt will increase runoff into rivers and
  streams around the county. Minor flooding will be possible from
  Saturday into Sunday.

* Smaller streams and creeks will be most at risk for high flows
  and potential flooding, but there is also a chance for some
  flooding along larger creeks such as Fish Creek, Oneida Creek,
  Oriskany Creek, Sauquoit Creek and the Black River among others.


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.
