Oswego-Jefferson-
1207 PM EST Sat Feb 23 2019

...LAKESHORE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM SUNDAY TO
1 PM EST MONDAY...

* LOCATIONS...Lake Ontario shoreline in Oswego and Jefferson
  counties.

* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...Powerful southwest winds will gust up to
  75 mph late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. Winds of this
  magnitude will result in significant wave action, along with
  water rises and ice movement on the eastern end of Lake
  Ontario.

* TIMING...From 4 PM Sunday to 1 PM EST Monday.

* IMPACTS...The combination of water rises and extreme wave action
  will result in lakeshore flooding. Some locations which tend to
  be vulnerable are Sandy Pond, Black River Bay, Chaumont Bay, and
  the Thousand Islands Region of the Saint Lawrence River. There
  is ice in place across northeastern Lake Ontario extending to
  the Saint Lawrence River. It is likely that higher lake levels
  and waves will break up the ice. Ice blocks will get pushed
  onshore and may result in damage to shoreline structures. The
  ice may dam up at river outlets and result in flooding near
  river mouths.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Lakeshore Flood Warning means lakeshore flooding is occurring,
is imminent, or is expected to occur. People in the warning area
should take immediate action to protect life and property. Listen
to local radio...television...or NOAA Weather Radio for further
information.
