Heavy Rain Could Cause Flooding In CNY
A strong cold front brings showers back into CNY, and we could see some flooding due to leaves clogging the drains.
The National Weather Service out of Binghamton is calling for locally heavy rainfall Wednesday afternoon-evening mainly east of I-81, as a strong front pivots through the area followed by surface lows merging to our northeast.
A Hazardous Weather Outlook has been issued in Northern Oneida, Onondaga, Madison, Southern Oneida, Cortland, Chenango, Otsego, Broome and Delaware Counties:
A strong cold front will move through the area Wednesday afternoon through the evening, with a solid batch of rain and a slight chance of thunder. Rain totals through Wednesday night are forecast to range from 1 to 2 inches, mainly east of Interstate 81 and heaviest towards the Poconos and Catskills. This may cause minor problems in poor drainage areas and also possible localized street flooding where leaves are clogging drains.
