Minor Flooding Possible from Thunderstorms and Fred
The National Weather Service in Binghamton says the Southern Tier region could be in for some wet weather for the next few days and that could cause some issues on the roads.
Forecasters say isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon of August 17 may produce locally heavy rain that could result in flash flooding in a few locations.
The region could also feel some tropical impacts over the next few days.
The National Weather Service says there could be additional rounds of heavy rainfall associated with what’s left of Tropical Storm Fred as it passes through Wednesday, August 18 and Thursday, August 19.
Locations that experience multiple rounds of heavy rain may see urban and small stream flooding. There is also a threat of severe thunderstorms Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Residents who live near areas that frequently flood should be aware of the incoming weather and be prepared to take appropriate action.
Motorists should also be aware of changing conditions that could include the pooling of water on the road and the danger of hydroplaning. Never drive around barriers that are set up on flooded roadways.
