Tropical Storm Isaias Could Soak Central New York, Cause Flooding
Tropical Storm Isaias is forecast to move up the East Coast the next couple of days and could soak central New York, causing flooding.
The National Weather Service says locally heavy rainfall will be possible Tuesday morning through evening in Oneida, Madison, Cortland, Chenango, Tioga, Broom and Bradford counties and could cause flooding. The heaviest rainfall and greatest chance for localized flooding will likely occur east of the area across the Catskills and portions of Northeast Pennsylvania A. Localized flooding will be possible further west if the system tracks a bit further inland.
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for much of Northeast PA, as well as Sullivan, Delaware and Otsego counties in New York. But the storm could shift further west, affecting Oneida and Madison counties. 2 to 4 inches of rain is possible.
