An active weather pattern continues in Central New York. Griffiss in Rome has measured 6" of rainfall since June 1st, with 0.5" in the first week of July. The rain has fallen much heavier than this south of the Mohawk Valley.

Moving forward, more chances for rain in the extended forecast will increase our chances for localized flooding later this week. Another round of thunderstorms are expected to move through the region on Wednesday, as a front stalls in our area. This brings 0.5"-1" of rain to the area.

Another wave of low pressure is expected on Thursday. This brings more rain to our area, with 1-3" of accumulation. We think this could be enough to cause some localized flooding in our area. The most likely spot for flooding is Southern Oneida and Otsego Counties, where heavy rain and flooding has taken place last week and earlier in June.

Remember, a stormtracker 2 alert is a way to bring awareness of the potential of impactful weather.  The flood potential at this point looks to be localized to poor drainage areas.  Most area streams and larger bodies of water are running near normal for this time of year and are not seriously vulnerable to major flooding.
