Persistent rain and melting snow Monday into Tuesday

Widespread moderate rain showers and high temperatures in the mid 40s, causing a good amount of snow to melt, could lead to localized flooding Monday into Tuesday.

Posted: Dec 8, 2019 10:10 PM

A Winter Weather Advisory is issued for Northern Herkimer, Lewis, Hamilton, and Northern Fulton
County for freezing rain and sleet. The advisory starts Sunday at 11:00 pm until 8:00 am Monday.
Hazards include a few tenths of an inch of sleet and a glaze of ice on the roads from freezing rain
overnight.

Plan on needing some extra time for your morning commute on Monday and be sure to drive slow and
carefully on slick spots.

This precipitation will eventually transition to rain showers by late Monday morning. The rain will
become widespread by the afternoon, becoming heavy at times Monday evening into Tuesday morning. The
rain will be persistent and there could be some pooling on the roads.

Rainfall accumulation totals by Tuesday vary across the region. South of the Mohawk Valley could see
0.75" of rain, in the Mohawk Valley could receive 0.25" of rain, but North of the Mohawk Valley could
get 1" to 1.5" of rain.

Also, with high temperatures in the mid 40s on Monday and Tuesday, the snow already on the ground will
begin to melt, putting even more water on the roads. This could be create a scenario for some areas of
localized flooding by Monday night or Tuesday.  Watch our Storm Tracker 2 Weather team for updates.
