Two rounds of storms brought heavy rain and gusty winds Friday

This all came with the same weather system that will bring cooler temperatures for the weekend.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Two rounds of severe storms moved through Western New York Friday and brought strong winds, heavy rain, lightning and thunder to the region. 

Though there will be a wide range in rain totals, most will have between half an inch to an inch by the end of the day. Even as the rain stops, some pooling or localized flooding could occur as water drains through small creeks and streams. 

There were also two storm reports of minor damage that occurred as severe thunderstorms moved through Cattaraugus and McKean counties. Downed trees is a classic sign of straight line winds produced by severe thunderstorms. 

It will be much cooler this weekend with highs only in the 60s. Look for plenty of cloud cover on Saturday with some sun breaks and a few showers. It will be partly cloudy Sunday and Monday, with mild conditions into next week.
