flood watch
national weather service buffalo ny
857 am est mon jan 22 2018

...ice jam flooding possible on area creeks this afternoon into
tuesday evening...

a warm front will continue to lift across the region today,
boosting temperatures into the 40s. temperatures will then remain
in the 40s tonight into tuesday.

area creeks and rivers still have ice in place. rises in water
level can break up this ice, which can then become jammed where
there are constrictions in the river or creek channel, such as
curves or other restrictions. localized flooding will be possible
in the vicinity of any ice jams. people living in areas that are
prone to ice jam flooding should take the time in advance to
prepare for the potential for flooding.
