The National Weather Service has issued a small stream flood advisory for Genesee, Orleans and Monroe counties. The advisory is in effect until 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.
Meteorologists from the weather service in Buffalo said they are expecting heavy rainfall and thunderstorms to accumulate 1 to 2 inches of rain per hour. They said excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will result in minor flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas.
Motorists should be prepared for ponding of water during the Tuesday afternoon drive along with poor visibility in heavy rainfall.
