LATEST: NWS says periods of heavy rain will pose flood risk for most of Finger Lakes

The National Weather Service says that periods of heavy rain will be in the forecast throughout the day.

For already saturated portions of the region- that means moderate flood risk. For places that have been spared the heaviest rains over the last two weeks- it will mean another 1-2 inches of rain.

At this point, forecasters are pointing to two areas that will see the heaviest rain. The first is in the western portion of the Finger Lakes- including Monroe, Wayne, and Western Ontario counties. The second area is in the Southern Tier and extends into portions of Yates and southern Seneca counties, where significant rainfall totals are expected.

Most forecasters agree that by Sunday- things will have improved. While there may be some lingering showers around in the morning- those will get out of the area by the afternoon hours- giving a little bit of room for outdoor time.

Follow along below with the latest updates from the National Weather Service and local forecasters.
