A long weekend of rain and sleet has caused several issues along local creeks and rivers in Western New York.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Flood Watch for much of Western New York.

The Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of western New York...including the following
  counties...Allegany...Cattaraugus...Chautauqua...Genesee...
  Livingston...Monroe...Niagara...Northern Erie...Orleans...
  Southern Erie and Wyoming.

* Through Tuesday afternoon.

* 1 to 1.5 inches of rain is expected through today. Warmer
  temperatures during this time will also melt any ice left on the
  ground which will runoff into area creeks and rivers.
"A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and tv
stations for further details or updates"
