The Flood Watch now includes Steuben, Chemung, Tompkins, Yates and Schuyler through Friday night. This was added to the original watch including the counties of Bradford, Tioga (PA), and Tioga (NY).

As we head into this evening heavy rain is expected that could contain embedded thunderstorms as temperatures stay near 60, resulting in rainfall amounts of 1.5-2.5"+ across the Twin Tiers and Finger Lakes Regions. The wet soil conditions and this amount of rainfall could result in minor flooding along creeks and the head water points in the Chemung, Canisteo and Cohocton river basins along with roadways as well as minor flooding along the Susquehanna and Delaware River basins along with roadways and poor drainage areas. 

Check back for any more alerts through the day!
