Severe Thunderstorm and Flood Watches for Potter County expire

Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected across much of Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon and evening.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — While much of Western New York will witness its share of isolated showers and storms Wednesday, stronger storms were expected farther south in Pennsylvania.

All alerts had expired around 8 p.m.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Potter County in northern Pennsylvania was in effect. Strong to severe storms capable of producing 65 mph wind gusts are expected. 

A Flood Watch was also in effect until 11 p.m. Wednesday for Potter County. 

Showers and thunderstorms capable of producing heavy rainfall are expected. Flash flooding of low-lying areas and areas with poor drainage is possible with potential storm total rainfall amounts upwards of 3 to 4 inches.  

These thunderstorms are developing ahead of a cold front that will move through the region later Wednesday night and clear out the severe conditions.
