During the winter months, the National Weather Service (NWS) puts together an outlook assessing the risk of possible flooding across the Twin Tiers. These outlooks may often go unnoticed by the public, but on the heels of the worst flooding the Twin Tiers has seen in many, many years, I want to draw attention to this product.
It is released about every two weeks and covers two weeks into the future. The NWS stresses this outlook does not attempt to address the severity of any possible flooding. It assesses a list of current hydrologic conditions that contribute to flooding and takes into account future forecasts on the potential of flooding. It DOES NOT address the potential of Flash Flooding.
