Quick Updates & Important Links
Here are the latest expectations on the heavy rain event expected for the Finger Lakes, as well as a couple of links to help you stay informed.
My next update will come Monday morning.
- Rain is unlikely to reach the ground in the Finger Lakes until after dark Sunday, even if the radar shows rain overhead.
- Most of the region should see 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain. The Southern Tier and eastern Finger Lakes are most likely to see over two inches with locally over 3 inches possible.
- Rain amounts are expected to be higher in these areas due to a band of heavier rain that should develop Monday evening while areas further west begin to dry out.
- Rain should be mostly over by Tuesday morning, with just a few scattered showers remaining.
- The flood threat, with these rain amounts, is relatively low. Some flash flooding and small stream flooding will be particularly possible in the localized areas of 3+ inches Monday evening.
- The amounts listed on the map above are general guidelines only. Amounts will vary from what is on the map.
- Strong southeast winds of 35-45 mph will be possible and could lead to sporadic power outages.
