The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Madison and Oneida Counties until 5:00 p.m.

A group of thunderstorms will move through the watch area, dropping heavy amounts of rain in a short time.

Rainfall rates exceeding an inch and a half per hour are possible with amounts totaling up to two inches.

With the wet ground and previous  flooding, the area is especially vulnerable to flooding, so a Flash Flood Watch has been issued.
