Warm weather and heavy rain could lead to flooding this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
A flood watch is in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.
A warm front is lifting into the lower Great Lakes tomorrow and is expected to stall there over the weekend.
This will result in period of heavy rain across WNY.
Storm drains may remain blocked my snow, which could lead to flooding in low-lying areas. There could also be flooding along creeks and streams.
