Heavy Rain Monday could lead to flooding

What once was Tropical Storm Gordon arrives to our area Monday and brings the potential for flooding.

Although the weekend is making it feel like fall we aren't done with the tropics just yet. What is left of what once was Tropical Storm Gordon is projected to arrive in Central New York late Sunday night into early Monday morning.

Steady rain is expected to start Sunday night and become heavy at times and last through Monday. It is a large and slow moving system and as a result a large portion of Central New York may see 1 to 3 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts possible. It also will be windy throughout the day

This prolonged period of heavy rain will lead to rising waters and an elevated threat of flooding especially along small creeks and streams. There is also the potential to for localized flash flooding primarily on Monday if we see thunderstorms develop. As a result a Flood Watch has already been issued for Oneida, Madison, Chenango, and Otsego counties from 8:00 PM Sunday through 2:00 AM Tuesday.

In case of flooding remember to get to higher ground, don't drive through flood waters, and stay informed on the current conditions outside.
