We Did It! Buffalo Set A Record High Today
Just days after Buffalo set a record low Mother Nature is flipping the script and we saw a record high today!
It was this past Wednesday that Buffalo tied a record low with a temperature of -3, and today we set a record high at 58.
The high of 57 was set back in 1991.
With the quick warm-up after lots of snow is the possibility of flooding across Western New York is a major concern.
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Flood Warning until 4:45 pm.
* Flood Warning for... Central Erie County in western New York... * Until 445 PM EST Monday. * At 441 AM EST, there was still at least one ice jam occurring on Buffalo Creek, which was located near the gage location at Gardenville. This is likely causing or will soon cause minor flooding in some areas along the creek. Ice was beginning to move on Cazenovia and Cayuga creeks as well. Law enforcement reported minor flooding on Parkside Drive in West Seneca along Cazenovia Creek. * Although no rainfall is expected today, extensive snowmelt will runoff into the Buffalo area creeks causing additional ice break up and increase the potential for flooding through today. * Some locations that will experience flooding include... Cheektowaga, West Seneca, Lancaster, East Aurora, and Elma. This includes Interstate 90 between exits 55 and 52A.
