Warm weather and rain with lots of snow and ice on the ground are leading to flooding concerns around the region, but as of early Friday local officials said they weren't seeing any problem spots on local rivers.
The Mettawee and Hoosic rivers flooded during ice jams that occurred during a thaw in January, leading to evacuations in southern Washington County, and the Hudson and Schroon rivers are prone to spring flooding as well.
As of Friday morning though, the National Weather Service was reporting no problem spots in the region.
Warren County Emergency Services Director Brian LaFlure said staff from his office was monitoring areas on the Hudson River that have historically had problems, including an area north of the Route 418 bridge between Warrensburg and Thurman that saw severe flooding last winter. But he said water was moving freely through and around ice as of Friday morning.
Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing again over the weekend, which should slow melting.
