Flash flood watch in effect for Cortland County Monday night

CORTLAND, N.Y. – The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Cortland County that will take effect at 10 p.m. Monday and last through Tuesday morning.

Heavy rain showers are expected to move into the region late Monday night, increasing the chance for more flooding in areas already hit hard by heavy rains Sunday night.

"The chance for widespread heavy rain is not as great as yesterday, but with the amount of the rain we had yesterday, our chance for additional flooding is higher than normal," the National Weather Service in Binghamton reported Monday afternoon.

Urban areas that experienced flash flooding Sunday night will be most susceptible to more flooding.

The rain is expected to taper off Tuesday afternoon, with sunshine in the forecast for Wednesday. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Thursday, with sunny skies returning Friday.
