STREAMING NOW: Watch Now

Warm weather and rain on the way

Rain and mild temperatures are on the way heading into the weekend.

Posted: Apr 18, 2019 5:05 PM

A flood watch is in effect for most of Central New York for Friday night into Saturday. The NWS in Albany has a flood watch in effect, while the NWS in Binghamton has a flash flood watch. The only difference between the two is based on the type of flooding expected. A flood watch favors stream and river flooding, while a flash flood watch favors poor drainage areas. The bottom line is expect the potential for issues on Friday night into Saturday.

Before the unsettled weather arrives, the weather is expected to turn very mild. Temperatures on Friday look to surge into the 70s! This will likely be the warmest day of the spring, so far. Heavy rain returns Friday evening, becoming heaviest Friday night. Thunder is possible in the heaviest bands of rain too, with 1-2" of rainfall accumulation possible.
