The National Weather Service has cancelledthe Tornado Watch for Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Livingston and Wyoming counties.
A watch indicates conditions are prime for a possible tornado. A warning means a tornado has been spotted.
In addition. the National Weather Service is calling for strong thunderstorms in the Western Southern Tier.
“A line of strong thunderstorms will enter far western New York around 7: 30 p.m. and move across the Western Southern Tier
including Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegheny counties this evening. This line is capable of producing damaging winds, large
hail, and possibly an isolated tornado. Anyone located outdoors, boating, or at any location vulnerable to strong winds should
seek shelter now” the NWS said.
In addition, “Periods of rain will move across the region through tonight. Rainfall amounts of 0.75 to 1.25 inches are expected. These rainfall
amounts may result in minor ponding of water in poor drainage areas. There is a Slight Risk of severe thunderstorms this evening and early
tonight. Damaging winds will be the main threat, with isolated large hail also possible,” the NWS said.
