A Flood Watch in Rochester as heavy rain falls

Written by on April 3, 2024

Rochester, NY, is currently under a flood watch as a result of heavy rainfall, with temperatures staying in the 40s. The flood watch encompasses areas from Rochester to Buffalo, including Monroe, Livingston, Wyoming, Genesee, Orleans, and Erie counties, and is expected to remain in place through Thursday afternoon. Forecasters predict over an inch of rain through tonight, leading to concerns about flooding. As the storm moves eastward, colder air is anticipated to convert the rain into wet snow, potentially leading to minor snow accumulations, especially in higher terrains, from the overnight hours into Thursday. This mix of rain and snow is likely to persist into Friday, with temperatures struggling to exceed the 40s. Conditions are expected to improve by Saturday with a warming trend, and Sunday promises better weather with temperatures reaching into the 50s. However, another approaching storm system may affect visibility for the upcoming eclipse on Monday, with forecast models showing uncertainty about cloud cover.
