A series of heavy rains over the past few days have added much-needed inches of water to streams and rivers across the Catskills.
But tonight and early tomorrow, Tuesday, June 16, more rain on saturated ground may cause some flash flooding.
From 2 a.m. Tuesday morning until Tuesday afternoon, heavy rain will fall in Delaware and Otsego counties -- sometimes as much as an inch an hour, according to an alert issued by the National Weather Service in Binghamton.
Stream gauges across the Catskills show that none of the regional rivers are currently flooding. One stream, Trout Creek in the Delaware County town of Tompkins, almost overflowed its banks early this morning during the heavy rains, but quickly went down below flood stage again.
