CORTLAND, N.Y. — The National Weather Service has extended a flood watch for the Cortland area until 12 a.m. Wednesday.
The advisory was first issued Monday morning for central New York and northeastern Pennsylvania but has since been extended by the weather service.
Areas of heavy rain are possible through the early evening hours.
This will lead to rapid rises and possible flash flooding of streams and creeks, overflow of ditches and culverts, and ponding of water on roads.
Monitor the latest forecasts and never drive into flooded areas.
Showers and thunderstorms continue to rotate around upper low pressure system that is moving across the area. Although not as intense as earlier today, flash flood threat will continue into this evening. #nywx #pawx pic.twitter.com/4t5svCjdq6
