Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:40 PM EST on January 23, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on January 24, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of eastern New York excluding the western Adirondacks, for
northwestern Connecticut, western Massachusetts, and southern
Vermont.

* Through Wednesday morning

* rainfall along with some snowmelt may be enough to dislodge
river ice which would then move downstream and potentially jam
at preferred locations, or may allow water to pool behind
existing ice jams which currently remain in place. Areas in the
river channels which are most prone to ice jam flooding include
obstructions in The Channel such as islands, locks, bridge
piers and docks; changes in The Channel such as narrowing of The
Channel, bends, gorges and intact ice cover; change in channel
depth from deep water to shallow water; and merger of river
channels.

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.
