The city of Amsterdam’s celebration and fundraiser for flood victims has been cancelled due to reports of potentially heavy rainfall expected to blanket the region on Saturday.
The Riverlink Park ribbon-cutting, planned to commemorate the park’s $700,000 expansion completed this week, will take place on Oct. 14 instead, according to a notice from the city.
National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Lipton said there is a potential for rain on Saturday and “it could be locally heavy.”
Lipton said there is a storm developing off the New Jersey coast. Unlike the tropical storms that besieged the region in late August and early September, this one is setting up like a nor’easter more typical of winter storms.
Some of the precipitation projected to hit higher elevations, such as the Adirondacks and Catskills, will likely change over to snow because temperatures are expected to drop, Lipton said.
