  • National Weather Service Graphic- This map shows the predicted rainfall from Sunday at 8 a.m. through Monday at 8 a.m

A Flood Watch is in effect for the area with heavy rain, high winds and embedded thunderstorms in the forecast. "We have the potential for another 2-4" of rain statewide as a strong low pressure system passes by us. Additionally, flooding along rivers, including the Black River, Moose River and Salmon River, is also possible.

The strong Nor'easter is projected to form Sunday afternoon and track through the Northeast in the evening. Jeff Smith answered questions about the storm on Facebook Live: A little rain will linger early tomorrow morning.

The NWS says very strong northwest winds will develop late Sunday night, becoming westerly on Monday, and the winds combined with wave action will increase shoreline erosion and possible cause some minor lakeshore flooding in bays and inlets. Expect west winds of 20 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts approaching 50 miles per hour.

In addition, the weather service noted, strong winds can make driving hard - especially if you have a high-profile vehicle - in open areas and on elevated roads and bridges. The front will eventually stall across New York's North Country, this will also mean some of the heaviest rain will be seen here. Steady and heavier rain will taper off overnight.
