These flood watches are for the risk of quick and significant river and stream rises near ice jams, as well as for urban and street flooding.
First off, a Flood Watch has been issued for all of Central NY from tonight through Saturday. "Temperatures will rapidly fall from the 50s and into the 20s by Saturday afternoon, resulting in a flash freeze".
There could be rapid rises on some rivers and streams that could lead to the potential of ice jams with water covered roads, especially in low lying areas.
The Flood Warning Center opened at 3:45 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 12, when the Tolt River reached a Phase 2 flood alert level, creating the potential for minor flooding in low-lying areas along the river upstream of Carnation.
"This unusual change in temperature can be unsafe this time of year, as ice on roads and in waterways melt, and in order to ensure the safety of residents and travelers, I have directed state resources to be ready in advance for whatever Mother Nature brings our way", Governor Cuomo said.

Saudi women attend football game for the first time

In addition, Long Islanders are urged to remain off of all frozen bodies of water - such as lakes, ponds - as increased temperatures and excessive rainfall may cause ice surfaces to weaken and become risky.
The Glens Falls region should see two to five inches of snow by early Saturday as well as freezing rain as temperatures stay warmer than areas to the north. Winds gusts of 45-55 miles per hour could also develop, particularly on the South Coast.
There was another ice jam just downriver from this one.
Rain can increase the possibility of potential problems.
"Rain will change to a brief period of freezing rain between 9 a.m. and noon", the weather service said. Chance of precipitation is 80%, but little or no snow or ice accumulation is expected.
