Predicted Rain To Add To Flood Concerns

Local News

Warm temperatures will lead to melting snowpack this week, where it still exists.

The National Weather Service says periodic rainfall will add to the runoff and contribute to higher than usual stream flows for this time of year.

As the week progresses, the chances for minor flooding on mainly the headwater rivers and tributaries will increase.

You are urged to monitor the weather and rainfall forecasts over the next several days.

The Tioughnioga River at Cortland was at about 4-1/2 feet Monday morning at a spot where 8′ is minor flood stage.

The river is projected to cross 7′ tomorrow afternoon, and peak at just under 8′, so you may find it worth monitoring.
