Now it will rain heavily on Monday. Then another frig day with some snow overnight and Tuesday possible.

The National Weather Service has sent a flood watch to all eight districts in West New York by Tuesday night. By late Monday afternoon, up to 1.5 inches of rain are predicted, the weather service said.

This rain, combined with melting ice – measuring half an inch in places east of the Buffalo metro – will predict it will flow into areas and streams. Minor flooding is possible, said meteorologists.

Alden saw 0.5 inches of ice, according to the Social Media Report recorded by the Weather Service. A trained spotter in Corfu reported 0.38 inches of ice and a meteorologist reported 0.31 inches of ice in Elma. Other ice accretion totals included: Hamburg, 0.25 inches; Buffalo Niagara International Airport, 0.2 inches; and Williamsville, 0.12 inches.
