Potential for severe weather and flooding to Allegany County region from Hurricane Beryl remnants

EARLY ALERT: Be Aware. Be Prepared. Stay Safe.TM as remnants of Hurricane Beryl, bringing damaging winds to portions of the Texas Coast this morning, are expected to reach the Great Lakes and the Allegany County regions by mid-week.

Graph from the NWS Weather Prediction Center (WPC) shows the current forecast path for Hurricane Beryl through midnight Wednesday, along with the anticipated rainfall over its course of travel during that time period.

The exact path of the weather force still is divergent in weather models, but there currently is a Marginal Risk forecast for yet-undetermined components of severe weather Wednesday from the National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Center (SPC), with a higher level Slight Risk for excessive rain, which can lead to flash flooding, from the NWS Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

The NWS at Buffalo, which forecasts for Allegany County and the rest of Western New York, currently reports that the storm is likely to bring at least an inch of rain to most locations, while the NWS at Binghamton, which oversees Steuben County east, says some areas could exceed two inches of rain an hour Wednesday, with localized flash flooding “likely.”

Current WPC maps are showing one-and-a-half to two inches of rain for the region through midnight Wednesday, with current NWS projections for Central Allegany County being the same.
