This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of western New York.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

A significantly warmer weather pattern starting on Wednesday and
lasting through Friday morning will increase run-off due to snow
melt. This will cause rising water levels on creeks and rivers that
drain the higher terrain east of Lake Erie. Rainfall will be
relatively light however, which will limit the risk of flooding.

Ice jams may locally increase the risk of flooding on the Buffalo
area creeks late Wednesday through Thursday if ice jams remain in
place until higher water flows develop.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
