Meanwhile, a ferry connecting cities in the USA and Canada across the St. Clair River has been shut down indefinitely due to damage by an ice jam to its Canadian dock.

First off, a Flood Watch has been issued for all of Central NY from tonight through Saturday. "Right now, rainfall looks to be between 1"-3" with some areas seeing more than 3" by Friday night.

Friday's drenching rain and temperatures as high as 50 "will lead to river rises and potential for ice jams", according to the weather service. "Temperatures will rapidly fall from the 50s and into the 20s by Saturday afternoon, resulting in a flash freeze".

To prepare for flood conditions, towns such as Lindenhurst, Long Beach, Syosset, and Oyster Bay have been preemptively working hard to remove existing snow from key locations, such as intersections and storm drains; Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joe Saladino was quoted as saying that he has 17 crews - made up of over 70 workers - out plowing sections of the town that look to be hit hardest by potential floods.

The National Weather Service is advising motorists to exercise caution and urn around if they encounter flooded roadways as most flood deaths occur in vehicles. He says traffic on the ferry is typically slow this time of year, though it's used daily by workers crossing the border.
