Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:38 PM EST on November 21, 2014

Expires 7:00 AM EST on November 26, 2014


... Flood Watch in effect from Sunday afternoon through Wednesday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has expanded the

* Flood Watch to include a portion of western New York...
including the following counties... Cattaraugus and Chautauqua.
The greatest flood risk is in the far northern portion of these
counties where the greatest snowpack exists.

* From Sunday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

* Snow melt from the recent significant lake effect snow events
combined with rainfall early next week will bring the potential
for flooding.

* Smaller streams and creeks will be prone to flooding from snow
melt. This includes some of the creeks that flow through Dunkirk
and Silver Creek. Towns that received significant amounts of
snow will also have potential for urban flooding from the snow
melt.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and TV
stations for further details or updates
