  Southern Erie and Wyoming.

* From this afternoon through Friday afternoon.

  tonight and into early Friday across all of Western New York,
  with the heaviest rain expected to fall between this afternoon
  and this evening. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are expected
  through early Friday morning. This heavy rain will fall on
  already saturated soils.

* Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall may result in minor
  flooding of poor drainage areas and small creeks from late this
  afternoon through early Friday morning, with minor flooding
  also possible in areas where fallen leaves clog storm drains.
  Minor flooding will also be possible on some of the larger
  creeks and rivers on Friday, including the upper Genesee River,
  upper Allegheny River, and Buffalo and Rochester area creeks.


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.
