Flood Watch

01/14/2018 2:47 AM through 01/14/2018 10:00 AM

Update to NWS-IDP-PROD-2626439-2463881

Flood Watch issued January 14 at 2:47AM EST expiring January 14 at 10:00AM EST by NWS Binghamton NY


Runoff into larger tributaries, and the major rivers of the
region continues, despite the now frigid temperatures and wind
chills. River ice that released during yesterday's warmth and rain
may now move into ice jam prone areas and re-freeze. There are
currently a few known jams causing problems around central New
York and northeast Pennsylvania, and several of our stream gauges
are showing indications of water level changes from ice jamming.
The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central New York and northeast Pennsylvania,
including the following areas, in central New York, Broome,
Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Madison, Northern
Oneida, Onondaga, Otsego, Schuyler, Seneca, Southern Cayuga,
Southern Oneida, Steuben, Sullivan, Tioga, Tompkins, and
Yates. In northeast Pennsylvania, Bradford, Lackawanna,
Luzerne, Northern Wayne, Pike, Southern Wayne, Susquehanna,
and Wyoming.

* Until 10 AM EST this morning

* Broken ice along area rivers may cause additional ice jams and
localized flooding this morning, as rivers begin to re- freeze.

* Rivers and streams could see locally fast and significant
rises in the vicinity of any ice jams.


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.
