Albany, NY – According to the National Weather Service, there is a high probability of heavy rains in the Capital Region beginning Thursday evening, December 24 through Friday afternoon, December 25, with the heaviest rains overnight. Based on initial estimates, the City of Albany could experience 1 to 3 inches of rain within 24 hours, along with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.
The forecasted rain will fall on a deep snowpack from last week's historic snowstorm, leading to significant snow melt. Any snow melt combined with 1 to 3 inches of rain could cause localized flash flooding, especially in areas that are prone to flooding. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch through Friday afternoon for dozens of municipalities across the region, including the City of Albany.
