LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The National Weather Service put a flash flood watch in effect for Livingston County following this morning’s thunderstorm.
According to the National Weather Service, the watch will remain in effect through the evening of June 15.
“With heavy rain already occurring earlier this morning, it will not take much rainfall to cause flooding in some area creeks and streams,” said the National Weather Service. “Urban areas and areas with steep terrain will also be vulnerable to flooding.”
The weather service says that a very moist airmass will move into western NY behind a warm front this afternoon bringing heavy showers and thunderstorms. Slow-moving storms could bring a quick one to two or more inches of rain within an hour, with flash flooding possible across the
Western Southern Tier, Genesee River Valley and western Finger Lakes into the evening.
A Flash Flood Watch means the threat of flash flooding exists along rivers and creeks.
“If you are in the watch area you should monitor weather conditions closely,” said the National Weather Service. “Be ready to move to higher ground if flooding is observed or a warning is issued. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and TV stations for further updates.”
