The National Weather Service in Binghamton says the precipitation combined with continued melting of snow and ice has a potential for causing some water issues.

The forecast early February 22 was calling for rain to move into the area by afternoon with daytime rainfall of between a tenth and a quarter of an inch.  The rain was forecast to continue through Tuesday night with another tenth to a quarter of an inch of precipitation.  Many riverbanks around the region, meanwhile, are littered with chunks of ice piled several feet high.
