...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE
WEDNESDAY NIGHT...

The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of central New York and northeast
Pennsylvania, including the following areas, in central New
York, Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Otsego, and Tioga. In
northeast Pennsylvania, Bradford and Susquehanna.

* From Tuesday afternoon through late Wednesday night

* Melting snow, and occasional light rain, today through Tuesday
will cause significant rises on rivers and tributaries in the
region. Although uncertainty remains to exactly how much snow
will melt, and how much rain will fall, there is a chance for
minor river flooding in the Upper Delaware and North Branch
Susquehanna basins. Smaller stream flooding is also possible in
the heaviest snow covered areas.

* The locations which appear to be most vulnerable for minor
flooding at this time are Walton on the West Branch Delaware,
Sherburne on the Chenango, Conklin, Vestal and Waverly on the
Susquehanna. Impacts from minor flooding are typically confined
within the natural flood plain of the river. Roads, homes and
businesses within this region of a river are most at risk for minor
flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. These forecasts can change based on current
conditions.

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.
