...A LINE OF STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WILL AFFECT NORTHEASTERN ERIE...
NIAGARA...ORLEANS...WESTERN MONROE AND NORTHERN GENESEE COUNTIES...

At 124 PM EDT, radar indicated strong thunderstorms were located
along a line extending from Niagara Falls to Greece. While the line
of storms was nearly stationary...movement of the individual cells
was to the east at 30 mph. This will allow for multiple storms to
move over the same area and potentially produce excessive amounts of
rain. Some areas have already received over an inch of rain in less
than an hours time.

Winds in excess of 40 mph and up to half inch hail are possible with
these storms.

Locations impacted include...
Rochester, Greece, Irondequoit, Niagara Falls, North Tonawanda,
Chili, Lockport, Amherst, Tonawanda and Brockport.

This includes the following highways...
 Interstate 390 near exit 12.
 Interstate 90 near exit 46.

Torrential rainfall is also occurring with these storms, and may
cause localized flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded
roadways.

These storms may intensify, so be certain to monitor local radio
stations and available television stations for additional information
and possible warnings from the National Weather Service.
