Flood warnings canceled, prepare for 'coating' of snow Friday morning

Flood warnings in the Buffalo area have been canceled as of Tuesday morning after many creeks reached flood level Sunday night and Monday.

One exception was Foote Road in the Town of Royalton, which was closed this morning between Wolcottsville Road and the Erie County line due to flooding, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office announced.

Also Tonawanda Creek in Batavia is under a flood warning through 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The weather should be relatively uneventful for the next couple of days, said Bob Hamilton of the National Weather Service.

But watch out for a dip in the temperature Thursday night into Friday, he said. The low overnight Thursday will be in the mid 20s and the next day, the forecast calls for a high of only 28 degrees.

There maybe a little bit of snow, too.

"Maybe a coating but nothing to get excited about," Hamilton said.

The snow showers and frigid temperatures could pose an additional challenge for moving day at Women and Children's Hospital when all patients will be moved to the new Oishei Children's Hospital, which is scheduled for Friday.
