More Flood Concerns For WNY This Tuesday
It was not a very fun day or two at the end of the workweek a few days ago.
This past Thursday saw heavy, all-day rain for Western New York, after a Wednesday that saw temperatures in the 50's and melted much of the packed snow from the winter. That caused major flooding and road closures. It even caused some residents to vacate their homes for safety concerns.
Then, to add insult to injury, a few more inches of snow fell early Friday morning and saw freezing of that rain and melted snow.
There's still a flood warning for Tonawanda Creek through Tuesday. That's the day we will see more rainfall.
WIVB 4 Warn Weather forecasts an all-day rain for Western New York on Tuesday, with the steadiest rain coming during the afternoon, which could flood some roads.
The good news is that this will be slightly less rain than we saw this past Thursday, so the flooding should not be as bad, but it's something to keep an eye out for.
Temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 40's for Buffalo on Monday, with 50's and rain on Tuesday. Wednesday the weather turns colder and yes, we get more snow showers, with potentially significant snowfall for Friday.
It's been such a miserable winter. Even when we finally get the random above-normal temperatures, it comes with heavy rain and flooding. Then, the snow and cold are back immediately.
Not so patiently waiting for spring to arrive in Buffalo...
