New York, Oswego

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:20 AM EST on February 25, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 26, 2017


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of central New York... including the following
counties... Jefferson... Lewis and Oswego.

* Through Sunday evening.

* A strong cold front will cross the area from late morning
through late afternoon, producing additional rainfall amounts of
around an inch. Much warmer temperatures will also result in
very rapid snowmelt across the Tug Hill plateau and western
Adirondacks. Excessive runoff from snowmelt and rain will
result in significant rises on area creeks and rivers.

* Flood potential will initially impact smaller streams which
drain the Tug Hill plateau and western foothills of the
Adirondacks, with flooding possible in low lying areas and near
streams today. The larger rivers will then see significant rises
tonight and Sunday with flooding expected along the entire reach
of the Black River and tributaries in Lewis and Jefferson
counties. Please see specific river warnings for the Black River
and Moose River. Other rivers may reach flood stage later this
weekend, including the Beaver River and possibly the Salmon
river and other smaller rivers in northern Oswego County.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and TV
stations for further details or updates.
