Tornado warning for Cattaraugus expires as storms roll through WNY

Rain across Western New York Saturday night in advance of a cold front was expected to lead to slow clearing during the day Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Kelly said.

The rainfall included some severe thunderstorms throughout Western New York Saturday evening and a tornado warning, which expired at 7:30 p.m., for the southern Cattaraugus County communities of Allegany, Limestone and Carrollton. Officials reported no evidence of tornado activity.

Sunday, Kelly said, there is only a 20 percent chance of scattered showers, but it will be mostly cloudy, with slow clearing late in the day, starting near Lake Ontario. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

Monday should turn out mostly sunny with a high of about 79 degrees. Sunny skies also are expected Tuesday through Thursday with daily highs in the mid to upper 70s. The next chance of rain is Friday and Saturday, with about a 30 percent chance each day, Kelly said.
