      Frost advisories & local river flood warnings in effect

      A Flood Warning continues for:

      --Cayuga Lake at Ithaca for minor flooding.

      --Mohawk River at Utica for minor flooding.

      A Frost Advisory is in effect late tonight through early Monday morning for Lewis, Oneida, Herkimer, Madison, Otsego, Chenango, Cortland, and Tompkins counties until 8am Monday. Take the necessary precautions to protect sensitive vegetation. It appears that only the coldest countryside locations of these counties have the best chance of receiving frost very early this morning.

      If your area has a flood warning for urban areas and small streams or an urban and small stream flood advisory, here is what you should do:

      -- Slow down! Ponding of water on highways can cause vehicles to hydroplane and veer out of control.

      -- Do not attempt to cross waters of unknown depth by foot, car, truck, or sports utility vehicle. Just one foot of water can carry vehicles away.

      -- If your car stalls in a flooded or low-lying area, abandon it immediately.

      -- Turn around, donâ??t drown. Find an alternative route.


      Stay with NBC-3, CBS-5 and CW-6 on air and CNYcentral online and through social media for updates through the period.


      If you see a flooding damage, please let us know on Facebook or by e-mail at weather@cnycentral.com or news@cnycentral.com.
