412 am EST Mon Nov 24 2014

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

At 403 am EST... temperatures in the mid 50s will slowly rise
through the morning hours... approaching the 60 degree mark by early
afternoon. While overnight rainfall has only amounted to around a
tenth of an inch or less across the areas that received the heaviest
snow fall over the last week... there remains a considerable amount
of water locked up in the remaining snowpack and 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 the morning hours.

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.
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.

Lakeshore Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:00 AM EST on November 24, 2014

Expires 1:00 AM EST on November 26, 2014


... Lakeshore Flood Watch remains in effect from this afternoon
through late Tuesday night...

* locations... Lake Erie shore of Chautauqua and Erie counties.

* Lake Shore flooding... strong southwest winds will cause Lake
Erie water levels to rise sharply late Monday afternoon
through Tuesday night. Water levels may rise to near the flood
stage of 8 feet above low water datum.

* Timing... late Monday afternoon through overnight Tuesday night.

* Impacts... sharp water level rises may result in flooding along
the Lakeshore... mainly in lower areas along the shore and in
bays and harbors as well as the shores and marinas of the
Buffalo River and upper Niagara River.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Lakeshore Flood Watch means that conditions favorable for
Lakeshore flooding are expected to develop. Residents on or near
the shore should take action to protect property... and listen for
later statements or warnings.





High Wind Warning, Wind Advisory

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

Expires 1:00 PM EST on November 24, 2014


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

* locations... Chautauqua and southern Erie County. Strongest winds
this morning will be near the Lake Erie shoreline.

* Timing... through late tonight.

* Winds... southwest 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph this
morning... increasing to 60 mph this afternoon and tonight.

* 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 over... especially shallow rooted pines. These
winds would 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.

A Wind Advisory is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be
31 to 39 mph or gusts will range between 46 and 57 mph. Winds of
these magnitudes may cause minor property damage without extra
precautions. Motorists in high profile vehicles should use
caution until the winds subside. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio
and other radio and TV stations for further details or updates.
