This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern New York...central
Vermont...northeast Vermont...northwest Vermont and southern
Vermont.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Spotty light ice accumulations will be possible tonight across
parts of the northern Adirondacks of New York and areas east of
the Green Mountains in Vermont. Amounts will generally be a
trace...but there may be spots where a hundredth or two accumulate.
As a result...travel conditions could be impacted despite only
the potential for light ice amounts. Be aware that sidewalks and
driveways could equally be impacted. Please use caution when
traveling across the northern Adirondacks and eastern Vermont
tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Growing concern for hydrologic concerns. First item of note is the
above normal temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday with many
locations staying above freezing at night. This should lead to an
increased potential for ice breakup in rivers by Thursday. And this
will then contribute to potential ice jams. Ice is more noticeable
in northern rivers so rivers north of Route 2 in Vermont will have a
better chance for ice jams. The same can be said in northeast New
York for rivers like the Ausable and Great Chazy. Further warming
takes place on Friday and especially on Saturday...which will
contribute to more snowmelt and rises on area waterways. Upper
trough moves into the region on Saturday with above normal
precipitable water values ahead of it and this may contribute to
heavier precipitation across the area. Right now looking at amounts
in the one half to one inch range...but higher amounts are
definitely possible and will continue to monitor. In summary...growing
ice jam threat begins Thursday and continues into Saturday. Rises in
river levels will take place more noticeably on Friday and Saturday.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
