The National Weather Service has issued flood watches for much of upstate New York, where forecasts are calling for as much as 4 inches of rain in some areas.
Forecasters say heavy rainfall is expected this morning in parts of eastern New York, where melting snow pack could result in flooding along some creeks and rivers.
Two to 3 inches of rain are forecast for most of the mid-Hudson Valley with up to 4 inches across parts of the southeast Catskills and southern Adirondacks.
Temperatures are expected to climb into the 40s and 50s today, adding to the threat of flash flooding along smaller streams.
