The National Weather Service says the Flash Flood Watch is now in effect until 8 p.m. July 14, extended for another day, for a portion of the Southern Tier and Central New York, including Broome, Chenango, Cortland and Delaware counties.

Heavy rain in thunderstorms may result in flash flooding, especially in urban and poor drainage areas, as well as places   that have already received flooding in recent days.

There have been widespread reports of pooling on roadways and motorists are urged to slow down as they may suddenly encounter water on the road.  Also, visibility is compromised in heavy rain.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
