Isaias Sets Its Soggy Sights on Twin Tiers
The National Weather Service in Binghamton says there is a flooding potential from the remnants of tropical storm Isaias as the system works its way up the east coast.
NOAA says rain, possibly heavy, could move across our area in the evening August 3 and last through August 4. The amount of rain generated over the Twin Tiers will depend on how far inland the storm tracks.as
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for portions of central New York and northeast Pennsylvania, including Delaware County in New York and Susquehanna and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania from 6 a.m. August 3 to 6 a.m. August 4.
The National Weather Service says a total of 2 to 4 inches of rain is expected, with locally higher amounts possible. Hourly rainfall rates may exceed an inch per hour at times. Those heavy rainfall rates will have the potential to cause localized flash flooding in urban, poor drainage, and low lying areas. Smaller streams and creeks may also flood their banks due to the heavy rainfall rates.
