Rain threat lessened, says Snyder

Here is a synopsis of today’s call with the National Weather Service:
Storms will be more organized later this afternoon and tonight (especially north of Albany).
Flash flood information has not changed since yesterday. A flash flood watch is in effect in areas north and west of Albany from 2 PM this afternoon until 8 AM Tuesday morning.
Things are somewhat improved for the river flooding forecast. There will be general precipitation tomorrow, but it now appears a large area of heavy rain will shift to our east. Therefore we will still get rain on Monday, but not the real heavy precipitation.
Tuesday should dry out. Overall model guidance indicates about 1-2 inches of rain as a basin average (more in thunderstorms). This is less than yesterday.
Additional precipitation from the remnants of Lee should not be seen until the Wednesday time frame.
