This weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren of the Adirondack Almanack looks at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks each weekend.

High waters and flooding remain a concern as snowpack in the mountains continues to melt, although most rivers should be below flood stage this weekend. Some crossings however, may not be passable with waters continuing to run well above normal.  Go to full article

Updated: Black River receding, but officials urge caution

UPDATE - 2 P.M. High water in the Black River continues to fall. According to the the National Weather service, the water level at Watertown reads 11.5 feet at this hour. The Schroon River also continues to fall, but remains in the moderate to major flood zone, at just over 9 feet at Rivebank.

UPDATE - 8 A.M. The Black River is falling this morning. According to the National Weather Service, it's now just over 12 feet at Watertown, still two feet above flood stage, but down a foot and a half since it crested early yesterday morning.

It had been expected to crest at 14.2 feet, but after reaching 13.8 feet the river fell through the day. Those levels are still the second highest the Black River has been in recorded history. Flood warnings remain in effect for Jefferson and Lewis counties, and counties along Lake Champlain.


APR 18, 2104 - People along the Black River in the Watertown area were watching the river closely today, after forecasters predicted the Black would come close to setting a new record for high water as it crested. But as of this afternoon, the water levels are going down, according to the National Weather Service and emergency crews on the ground.  Go to full article

St. Lawrence River ice slows ships, delays Port of Oswego opening

Ice floes slowing ships in the St. Lawrence River are delaying the opening of the shipping season at the Port of Oswego till next week.
