Rainy Friday brings slight chance of severe storms

On what will likely be a wet Friday, Western New York also faces a slight risk of severe weather from this afternoon through early tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

"Damaging wind gusts and large hail will be the main threats, however an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out," the weather service said in a Twitter post.

Forecasters said rain is likely throughout the day, with a chance of thunderstorms, which have the potential to produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall.

High temperatures today away from the lake shores are expected to reach the low 70s, according to the weather service.

The region's risk level for severe weather is second lowest on the weather service's threat scale.

Forecasters urge the public to monitor weather conditions throughout the day and to make plans in case a warning is issued.
