...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* The entire North Country, except the Saint Lawrence valley in 
  northern New York, the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and Grand 
  Isle County in northwest Vermont. 

* Through Saturday morning

* Minor to locally moderate flooding is possible across the region
  due to increased runoff from snow melt and widespread rainfall
  amounts between one and one and a half inches. Basins with the
  highest flood threat are the Ausable, Otter Creek, Winooski and
  Mad Rivers where river crests above flood stage are likely on 
  Friday. 

* Potential impacts include road closures in low spots, 
  potential basement flooding in poor drainage locations, and 
  field flooding. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
