JAMESTOWN – The remnants of what is now Tropical Depression Florence will be scooting by to our south and east, brushing Western New York with some rain showers.
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for much of Central New York and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania until Noon tomorrow for the potential for upwards of three or more inches of rainfall from Florence.
While there are no watches in effect for our region, we will be dealing with some tropical-like rain today and early Tuesday. We expect the rain to begin this afternoon and last through 5 AM tomorrow.
Rainfall totals will be around one to one and half inches, but some could only pick up a half to three quarters of an inch. The amount of rain you will see will very on your location. Higher rain totals will likely be to the south closer to the storm center.
After a dry Wednesday and Thursday, a potent Cold front will sweep across the region Friday, bringing rain chances back into the forecast, and a below average start to fall, which comes our way at 9:54 PM on Saturday.
