The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Flood Watch, effective Tue., Apr. 4, into Sat., Apr. 8, for all of eastern New York and western New England. A storm system is expected to bring 1 to 1.5 inches of rainfall during the day and into the night, Tuesday. Recent rainfall and the snow melt have resulted in nearly saturated grounds across the region. Some flooding of urban, poor drainage and low-lying areas are possible. A second storm system is expected to bring additional rainfall to the area beginning Thursday into Friday night, increasing the potential for flooding. The National Weather Service advises those living in areas prone to flooding to be prepared to take action should that flooding develop.
