A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Cortland, Chenango and Tompkins counties until 12:00 p. m. Monday.

Rain showers and thunderstorms continue in central New York Monday. Some of the showers and storms contain heavy rain.  Given the wet weather of the past month or so, any heavy rain has the potential to cause localized and flash flooding again, especially across areas hit hardest by the flooding this summer south of routes 5 and 20.

Parts of the Southern Tier in Broome and Tioga Counties are flood warnings Monday morning. The National Weather Service in Binghamton reported several water rescues in Vestal Center along Choconut Creek and Apalachin along Apalachin Creek.

According to the National Weather Service, a Flash Flood Watch means the threat of flash flooding exists along rivers and creeks. If you are in the watch area you should monitor weather conditions closely and remember if you come across a flooded out road or walkway never try to cross it with your vehicle or by foot. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN…
