The National Weather Service and local agencies are keeping close watch on conditions in the sky and on local waterways.

The National Weather Service says the potential for flooding in the region from rain September 25 is low, even in areas that have experienced extensive flash flood damage since July.

Showers and thunderstorms could bring up to a half inch of rain before tapering off tonight but another cold front comes in September 26 with a potential of more showers and thunderstorms and up to another half inch of rain.

Officials are continuing to monitor roads and bridges that have been damaged by this summer’s flooding noting that even a relatively small rise in water levels could further erode soil and compromise infrastructure. Forecasters say locally heavy rainfall is expected to have the greatest potential for causing problems across the Southern Tier and Northeast Pennsylvania where soil conditions are already wet.  Also thunderstorms along the cold front September 26 could contain gusty winds.  Wind gusts as of 5:30 a.m. September 25 were already recorded at 24 mph at the Greater Binghamton Airport.

Stay tuned for updated weather conditions and be ready to take action should any advisories be issued.
