1020 PM 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 1010 PM EST... temperatures in the lower 50s will slowly rise
during the remaining overnight hours... reaching close to 60 by
midday Monday.

While rainfall will generally be a third of an inch or less through
Monday morning... the rate of snow melt will intensify with the
rising temperatures so that significant melting of the water laden
snow pack will lead to areas of flooding. Meanwhile the potential
for ice jam flooding has lessened... but this is a risk that will
still have to watched into Monday morning.

Residents near creeks are urged to take precautions to prepare for
possible flooding now... including moving items from basements.
Residents should be prepared to evacuate if ice jams force water
over river banks as moving water is a life threatening situation.

Since many storm drains are snow clogged... many urban areas will
likely experience flooding with several feet of water possibly
accumulating on some stretches of Road. Some residential basements
will start to flood at this time as well.

In addition... very strong winds will develop Monday and Monday
night. These winds will bring down some trees and power lines...
possibly causing scattered power outages. This will also cause sump
pumps to fail.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported

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.

High Wind Warning

Statement as of 3:53 AM EST on November 24, 2014

Expires 4:00 AM EST on November 25, 2014


... High Wind Warning remains in effect from 1 PM this afternoon
to 4 am EST Tuesday...

* locations... Niagara... Orleans... Genesee... Monroe... Wyoming and
northern Erie counties.

* Timing... early this afternoon through late tonight.

* Winds... southwest 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph.

* Impacts... winds of this magnitude could bring down some trees
and power lines resulting in scattered power outages. Due to
the recent melting of the past weeks heavy snow... an
unfrozen... saturated ground will make it easier for some
trees to be toppled... especially shallow rooted pines. These
winds will also make difficult travel for high profile
vehicles. In addition... Holiday decorations could be damaged
and other loose outdoor items such as trash cans could be
blown away.

Power outages could also exacerbate flooding concerns for those
with flooded basements as sump pumps would not work without an
emergency... generator power supply.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A High Wind Warning is issued when sustained winds of 40 mph are
expected for at least an hour... with gusts of 58 mph or greater
at any time. Damage to trees... power lines... and property are
possible with wind of this magnitude. If you have a high profile
vehicles be extra careful until the wind subsides. Stay tuned to
weather radio or other radio and TV stations for further details
or updates.
