mid-week River Watch

IMG_6058 Thursday (Jan. 25, 7 AM) Update: The Mohawk has been going down slowly all night and is projected to continue to fall. Click here for the NWS Hydrograph. At 6 AM the level was 219.43, with 220.0 as the flood level. FYI: See “Cuomo says special teams are assessing ice jams across upstate” (Times Union, Rick Karlin, Jan. 25, 2018)

Flood possibility Wed. Evening ALERT: The City of Schenectady issued an Updated Weather Advisory for Stockaders on Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 24. Click on the image to the right. And see Gazette coverage, here. .

 7 PM Wed. River Watch: The general flood watch for the Capital Region was called off by this morning, Wednesday, January 24. But, the Mohawk did not perform as expected overnight, and continued rising all day rather than falling. As of the time I am posting this piece, the Mohawk at the Stockade is .3 of a foot from the 220′ flood level. The National Weather Service and our County Emergency Management officials apparently have no current plans to announce a flood alert or the need for emergency measures. Naturally, I hope they are correct.

And, even more naturally, I took advantage of the beauty and power of the River view to takes some photos, and put them in a Slideshow.
