Warmer Weather and Rain Could Lead to Flooding in CNY
Warmer weather and heavy rain combined with melting snow could lead to localized flooding in Central New York.
Temperatures are forecasted to be a bit warmer next week, and combined with rain, conditions could contribute to flooding in some areas.
The National Weather Service extended forecast predicts temperatures rising into the 40's Monday and Tuesday (December 9th and 10th) and the possibility for as much as 2" of rain over the two days. "This along with snowmelt will undoubtedly cause rises in streams and rivers late Monday through Tuesday. The question is, by how much," writes the National Weather Service in Binghamton.
Temperatures are expected to drop dramatically Tuesday evening, with lows in the mid-20s. Temperatures will remain in the 20s Wednesday and Thursday.
