Flash Flood Watch Issued January 26 at 6:18AM Until January 27 at 9:00AM.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...



The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Flash Flood Watch for a portion of western New York... including the following areas...The Upper Niagara River in Niagara and Northern Erie counties through Sunday morning.

The Niagara River Control Center reports an ice jam on the Upper Niagara River near the North Grand Island Bridge. The water level is starting to rise in the area. The water level so far is just below the level where inundation and damage begins, but if the ice jam grows flooding may develop.

Areas susceptible to flooding from rising water on the Upper Niagara River include the Grand Island shoreline, Cayuga Island in Niagara Falls, and the river shoreline between North Tonawanda and Niagara Falls.

INSTRUCTIONS: A Flash Flood Watch means the threat of flash flooding exists along rivers and creeks. If you are in the watch area you should monitor weather conditions closely. Be ready to move to higher ground if flooding is observed or a warning is issued. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and tv stations for further updates.
