124 am EST sun Nov 23 2014

... The Flood Warning remains in effect until 415 PM EST Monday for
Erie... northern Chautauqua... Wyoming... southern Genesee and
northwestern Cattaraugus counties...

At 120 am EST temperatures continue to remain well above freezing
with readings expected to remain in the low to mid 40s through the
rest of tonight.

Temperatures will steadily climb into the lower 50s on Sunday...
before reaching 60 on Monday. While rainfall will generally be a
quarter inch or less through Sunday night... significant snowmelt has
begun and will now continue through the remainder of the weekend. It
is this snowmelt that will ultimately cause the flooding concerns.

Core samples of the deep snowpack at the start of the weekend
indicated that as much as 5 to 6 inches of water was locked in
place... but as temperatures continue to climb... this water will be
released... and in some cases fairly rapidly. Since many storm drains
are snow clogged... many urban areas will likely be the first to
experience flooding with several feet of water possibly accumulating
on some stretches of Road. Residential basements will start to flood
during this time as well.

Area tributaries... particularly Buffalo Creek... Cazenovia creek...
Cayuga creek and Ellicott creek... will take a bit longer to
experience significant rises with the potential to reach at least
minor flood stage Sunday night and Monday.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
