The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Poor Drainage Areas
for...
Rain and Snowmelt in...
Oneida County in central New York...
Seneca County in central New York...
Northwestern Otsego County in central New York...
Northeastern Yates County in central New York...
Madison County in central New York...
Cayuga County in central New York...
Cortland County in central New York...
Onondaga County in central New York...
Northern Tompkins County in central New York...
Northern Chenango County in central New York...

* Until 1015 AM EST.

* At 618 AM EST, Rain and snowmelt will cause urban and small stream
flooding. Overflowing poor drainage areas will result in minor
flooding in the advisory area. Up to one inch of rain has already
fallen with an additional one half to three quarters of an inch
possible today.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Onondaga, Syracuse, Utica, Clay, Rome, Cicero, Auburn, De Witt,
Lysander and Cortland.

Runoff from the heavy rainfall and snowmelt could also break up ice
along smaller rivers and streams and lead to ice jams. Ice jams can
cause rapid rises in rivers and streams leading to serious flooding.
If you live in an area that is prone to ice jam flooding, now is the
time to be prepared to take quick action in the event of an ice jam
flood. A flood watch remains in effect through Saturday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
