A COLD FRONT IN WESTERN NEW YORK EARLY THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE VERY
SLOW TO MOVE OFF TO THE EAST TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY AS A DISTURBANCE
FORMS ALONG THE BOUNDARY. THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED
WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BE ACCOMPANIED BY VERY HEAVY RAINFALL.
TWO TO FOUR INCHES OF RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN A COUPLE OF HOURS IN
SOME LOCATIONS. SHOULD THIS OCCUR...FLASH FLOODING IS POSSIBLE.

FLOODING HAS OCCURRED AT MANY LOCATIONS IN THE WATCH AREA OVER THE
PAST WEEK OR SO AND THOSE AREAS ARE LESS ABLE TO ABSORB LARGE AMOUNTS
OF ADDITIONAL RAIN.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLASH FLOODS. IF FLASH FLOODING IS OBSERVED... ACT
QUICKLY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND TO ESCAPE FLOOD WATERS. DO NOT STAY IN
AREAS SUBJECT TO FLOODING WHEN WATER BEGINS RISING.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. RAPIDLY RISING WATER MAY ENGULF YOUR VEHICLE AND ITS
OCCUPANTS AND SWEEP THEM AWAY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
