Rain, some with thunderstorms, are projected through Tuesday

Allegany County is forecast to obtain some relief from drought conditions through Tuesday but at the expense of humidity and a Marginal Risk for excessive rain in the southeastern part of the county, Southern Steuben and to the south in Pennsylvania.

The US National Weather Service Buffalo NY provides an overview of today and Monday in the graphic accompanying this story, which includes our inset of today’s excessive rain map from the NOAA NWS Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Md.

The current forecasts replace those of yesterday when the NWS Storm Prediction Center indicated a Marginal Risk of severe thunderstorms today for Allegany County and most of Western New York. This projection has been replaced by thunderstorm forecasts only.
