The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Orleans and several other Western New York counties. That warning is in effect for Thursday evening through Friday afternoon.
“The combination of rain and temperatures that are forecast to climb to near 50 degrees should result in greatly increased runoff with significant rises on area waterways,” the Weather Service advised.
