In addition, a lingering snowpack at the highest elevations of the Adirondacks and southern Green Mountains will also be contributing to the runoff. With rainfall and snowmelt occurring on nearly saturated soils, the runoff will lead to sharp rises on rivers and streams and some flooding will be possible across the southern Adirondacks, Lake George Region and southern Vermont.

* Those with interests in low-lying or flood prone areas should continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
