Showers will accompany a cold front through the area from mid-morning into the afternoon hours, according to the National Weather Service, for the third round of rain in the last five days. That could lead to additional flooding along already swollen rivers in the region.

Additional rainfall amounts of one quarter to one third of an inch will be possible before the rain finally comes to an end. The highest amounts will likely occur across the Finger Lakes region and upper reaches of the Susquehanna River basins, including this area, with lesser amounts across northeast Pennsylvania.

River flood warnings are already in effect for the Chenango river and several points along the Susquehanna River for minor flooding. Minor flooding is also occurring on the Mohawk River at Utica, although some points may start off below flood stage this morning.

The additional rain will cause them to rise again this afternoon and overnight. Additional rivers and smaller streams may also experience flooding today.

A flood threat continues along rivers, streams, creeks, urban areas with poor drainage and low-lying areas. People in these areas should monitor water levels through today.
