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.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for central New York.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

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

Mild and breezy weather from Thursday through Saturday will melt
nearly all of the remaining snow pack, releasing 1 to 2 inches of
runoff water into area streams and rivers. This, coupled with
some light to moderate rainfall on Friday night and Saturday,
will lead to significant rises on the rivers in the region. There
is a chance that some of the headwater river locations could experience
minor flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.

505 AM EST Tue Feb 21 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central New York.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

The probability of widespread hazardous weather is low.

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

Another strong surge of warm air will arrive later this week,
peaking on Friday. In addition to the warmth, low pressure will
bring several periods of rain Friday through Saturday. The
combination of rain and rapid snowmelt may bring an increased flood
risk to the eastern Lake Ontario region this weekend. The potential
flooding would first impact smaller streams and poor drainage areas,
with water then moving into the Black River and producing an
increased risk of river flooding late this weekend and early next
week.

A deep area of low pressure will move through the central Great
Lakes Friday night and Saturday, with a trailing cold front crossing
our region early Saturday. Winds will become quite strong along and
behind the cold front, with wind gusts of over 50 mph possible
northeast of Lake Ontario.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
