Flood watch in effect through Saturday

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for late Thursday through late Friday for Oswego County.

Meteorologists say the significant warm up with rain expected Thursday through Friday should result in greatly increased runoff and rising 
waterways. Runoff from rain falling on frozen ground may cause flooding of streets and in areas of poor drainage.

They said plenty of ice also is still in place in creeks so there will be an enhanced risk for ice jams and subsequent flooding.
