Flash Flood Watch Thursday Extended
The National Weather Service has extended the flash flood watch for Western New York.
The high humidity will create conditions that will be perfect for heavy rains to fall over a short period of time in parts of Western New York.
Rainfall totals over the last 24 hours. Areas that picked up 1" to 2" will be more susceptible flash flooding with additional rain today. pic.twitter.com/bTutIkTTKV

Widespread showers and thunderstorms will move across the region this morning. A stalled boundary from near Buffalo to the Finger Lakes may act as a focus for locally very heavy rainfall and numerous storms training over the same locations, which may result in flash flooding. The flash flood threat will diminish from west to east this afternoon.
