Very limited effects of Tropical Storm Ian expected today in Allegany County region

Allegany County residents will start to see some very limited effects of Tropical Storm Ian today as high clouds from the storm filter our sunshine.

The US National Weather Service Buffalo NY provides the graphic accompanying this story, with our inset from the NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center in the lower right side showing the current tropical storm force winds probability of 39MPH or greater as the storm heads north.

Locally, the National Weather Service currently says that: “Remnants of Ian will be lifting northward along the spine of the Appalachians on Saturday. Growing consensus (is that) at least some light showers will make the NY/PA line Saturday into Saturday evening. Then, large and expansive high pressure over northern Manitoba and Ontario provinces will push southeast, kicking the remnants more south and east into Sunday.”
