Meteorologists say the potential for flooding stretches from Buffalo to the New York City area, where the flood watch is in effect for most of Saturday. Most upstate areas are under a flood watch starting Saturday morning and continuing through Sunday.

The flood potential comes just days after a blizzard dumped up to two feet of snow in western New York and as much as five feet east of Lake Ontario. Rain is in the forecast for the weekend, accompanied by temperatures in the 40s and 50s in some upstate areas where arctic conditions closed highways and schools earlier this week.
