The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a flood watch for Schoharie and neighboring counties, including parts of Albany, Montgomery and Otsego. The watch is in effect from this afternoon through early Saturday morning, as a slow moving low pressure system is expected to bring two to three inches of rainfall into the area.

Heavy rainfall Friday evening, which may bring thunderstorms into the mix, could cause minor flooding to occur along the Mohawk River, West Canada Creek, and the Schoharie Creek. Ponding of water on roadways, flooding of poor drainage and low lying areas is also possible over the next twenty-four hours. 

Residents are advised to monitor forecasts and be prepared to take action should any flooding occur.
