New York, Lewis

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:28 AM EST on February 24, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 26, 2017


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

The Flood Watch continues for

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

* From this evening through Sunday evening.

* A deep low pressure system moving through the Great Lakes will
produce several periods of rain, with total rainfall from Friday
through Saturday of 1 to 1.5 inches. 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 Friday night through Saturday. The larger rivers
will then see significant rises later Saturday and Sunday with
flooding possible along the entire reach of the Black River
and tributaries in Lewis and Jefferson counties, including the
Beaver and Moose rivers, 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.
