  • Rain will gradually taper off overnight

  • The morning commute will likely be slower than normal

While the heaviest rain looks to be over, light to at-times moderate rain will continue through much of the night.

A Flood Watch has been extended for Montgomery, Schenectady, Schoharie, Greene and Ulster County through 12 p.m. Wednesday.

According to the NYS Mesonet at the University at Albany, many spots in the Catskills and lower Hudson Valley have seen over four inches of rain.


Other than poor drainage and basement flooding, minor to moderate creek and river flooding is forecast into Wednesday even after rain has come to an end. The main areas of concern through Wednesday afternoon will be the Schoharie Creek and Delaware River in Sullivan county.

If you encounter a water-covered road, you'll want to turn around and seek and alternate route. It only takes a foot of moving water to sweep away a four-door sedan.

While most won't experience flooding, heavy rain will likely slow travel down again Wednesday morning, so it's not a bad idea to budget extra travel time to your destination.
