FLOOD WATCH


FLOOD WATCH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
629 AM EST FRI NOV 21 2014

...SIGNIFICANT FLOODING POSSIBLE EARLY NEXT WEEK...

TWO SIGNIFICANT LAKE EFFECT SNOW EVENTS THIS WEEK HAVE BROUGHT A
VERY DEEP SNOWPACK ACROSS PORTIONS OF WESTERN NEW YORK. THIS
SNOWPACK NOW STORES A LARGE QUANTITY OF WATER. AFTER THE LAKE
EFFECT SNOW ENDS...A WARMING TREND WILL START EARLY THIS WEEKEND.
BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON AIR TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING
THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. DAYTIME HIGHS WILL RISE TO NEAR 50 F
DEGREES ON SUNDAY...AND NEAR 60 F DEGREES ON MONDAY. IN ADDITION
TO THE WARMING AIR TEMPERATURES...A SOUTHERLY BREEZE AND RISING
DEW POINTS WILL MAKE FOR A MORE EFFICIENT MELTING OF THE SNOWPACK.

AT FIRST THE SNOWPACK WILL ABSORB MUCH OF THE WATER FROM THE SNOW
MELT. HOWEVER AS THE SNOWPACK RIPENS...AND WITH THE ADDITION OF A
HALF INCH OR SO OF RAINFALL SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...THE
POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING WILL RAPIDLY INCREASE.

PEOPLE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING...AND WHERE SIGNIFICANT
AMOUNTS OF SNOW FELL SHOULD TAKE TIME IN ADVANCE OF THE WARMING
TO PREPARE FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT FLOODING EARLY NEXT
WEEK. IN ADDITION TO CREEKS AND SMALL STREAMS FLOODING THEIR
BANKS...WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS POSSIBLE ACROSS TOWNS WHERE
SEVERAL FEET OF SNOW FELL.

  MELT. THIS WILL INCLUDE THE CREEKS THAT FLOW THROUGH THE BUFFALO
  METRO AREA...INCLUDING CAYUGA...BUFFALO...CAZENOVIA AN ELLICOTT
