Slow melt is best for Mohawk ice jam

On the Mohawk River right now, it’s ice to the east and ice to the west. As far as the eye can see, it’s ice. And if it doesn’t melt slowly, the National Weather Service experts say, winter flooding could be inevitable.

That’s because this year’s ice jam, a typical winter sight in the Electric City, is larger and longer than normal, said meteorologist Brian Montgomery. As warmer weather approaches, so too does the rain. Combined that with the massive chunks of ice on the Mohawk, that could spell trouble for Schenectady.
