Today could be a record-breaker for warmth in Western New York. The temperature is forecast to reach a high of 71 degrees in Orleans County.
The National Weather Service warns the high temperatures, with a combination of rain and snow melt, will cause area creeks and rivers to rise.
There is a 90 percent chance of rain today.
“At this time, rises are expected to be within bank, but there is a small chance of flooding if rainfall exceeds the current forecast,” the Weather Service said.
Wednesday will reach a high of 60 before dropping to 40 by 5 p.m. Thursday’s high will only be near 36.
