EARLY ALERT: A MARGINAL RISK of severe thunderstorms exists for Allegany County and most of Western New York tomorrow afternoon and evening.
The current Sunday forecast, from the US National Weather Service Buffalo NY, says that damaging winds and large hail are the main threats, with localized heavy rain possible if thunderstorms “train” — repeated areas of rain, typically associated with thunderstorms, that move over the same region in a relatively short period of time — over the county, similar to what was experienced earlier this week.
Be Aware. Be Prepared. Stay Safe.TM and continue to monitor for updates.
Further information is available at www.weather.gov/buf for the NWS Buffalo forecast region, www.weather.gov/bgm for Steuben and counties to the east, and www.weather.gov/ctp for adjoining Pennsylvania counties.
Local weather forecasts for specific areas are accessible through the Search feature in the upper left corner of most NWS pages, with Hourly Weather Forecasts, which project event timing throughout the day, found on the lower right side of local pages.
