Minor Flooding Possible Tuesday

A slight warm up Monday night and Tuesday with widespread rain could lead to some isolated ice jams and flooding.

Posted: Jan 22, 2018 10:50 AM

After sunshine and mild temperatures over the weekend, the snowpack has begun to melt once again across Central NY. The good news is that the snow melt has been a slow process, as temperatures slowly warmed up into the 30s and 40s on Saturday and Sunday. This morning, a few pockets of freezing drizzle in Otsego County made for some trickey travel but most areas are now above 32 degrees and look to stay that way for the next 24 to 36 hours.  


A warm front moves into the region this afternoon and evening with a round of rain. Precipitation looks to stay light into the evening before tapering off tonight. The one area of concern is the Adirondacks, with areas hover around 32 degrees this evening. Freezing rain is possible to the north and east of Utica this afternoon and evening. Temperatures actually warm up during the overnight as the front lifts north. Rain develops once again late tonight into Tuesday morning, but freezing rain shouldn't be an issue as temperatures will be in the 40s. 


The combination of the rain and warming temperatures tomorrow could cause isolated flooding due to ice jams. This time around, it does not look as widespread as the snow melt has been slow and steady over the past couple of days. But with temperatures in the 40s to near 50 degrees, creeks and streams need to keep a close eye on water levels. The actual cold front moves in Tuesday night with a drop in temperatures and some light snow showers. Areas of black ice are possible by Wednesday morning as temperatures drop to near 20 degrees.
