Flood Watch Over the Weekend for Various Parts of Central New York
Central New York is no stranger to the dangers of flooding. The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a flood watch for much of the area going into effect this weekend.
Beginning Saturday morning through Sunday evening a cold front will bring a quick burst of rainfall. That rain combined with the rapid snow melt runoff into streams and rivers make minor flooding very possible. The watch is for parts of Northern Oneida and Southern Oneida County.
According to the NWS,
Smaller streams and creeks will be most at risk for high flows and potential flooding, but there is also a chance for some flooding along larger creeks such as Fish Creek, Oneida Creek, Oriskany Creek, Sauquoit Creek and the Black River among others.
This watch is a result of current weather forecasts and you are recommended to keep up with all the latest weather updates for more details.
