Uncertain weather conditions could impact parts of Allegany County tonight due to Hilary remnants

Locally heavy downpours of rain tonight, including some of the leftover moisture from California’s Tropical Storm Hilary, could impact parts of Allegany County, with wet weather also in the forecast for Thursday.

The National Weather Service (NWS) at Buffalo says that “showers and thunderstorms tonight could generate heavy rain over the western counties” of New York, with the “highest chance for significant rainfall of more than an inch will be south and west of a line from Buffalo to Warsaw to Belmont.”

Gusty winds also are possible, but primarily to the west, it reports, with parts of Cattaraugus County and portions of bordering Pennsylvania in the Marginal Risk category for severe weather.
