An areal flood watch remains in effect from 1pm today until 1pm tomorrow. There is also a wind advisory posted from 3pm today until 4pm tomorrow. The possibility of flooding is due to the forecasted heavy rainfall, as well as snow melt from this past weekend's storm. Wind gusts could reach up to 50mph in Otsego, Chenango, and Delaware Counties.

Per the NOAA office in Binghamton:

A strong storm system arrives today bringing a multitude of hazards to the region. Precipitation begins as snow around 10am, moving from southwest to northeast across the area. By early to mid afternoon, a wintry mix is expected followed by all rain into the evening hours. Winds will become very strong this afternoon into the overnight hours, with damaging wind gusts possible from the western Finger Lakes to Oneida county. Heavy rains this evening into the overnight hours will bring a chance for flooding across the Twin Tiers into the Catskills.
